We're pleased to present the fifth installment of Kaiser Permanente's monthly health topic campaign for 2012.

In May we take a look at the way people fuel their bodies. Healthy eating creates healthy energy, which powers well being. Employees can visit http://www.kp.org/nutrition to find simple and delicious solutions that connects the relationship between eating well and improving their mood, ability to manage weight, and building their defenses against disease.

Start with the basics - your plate:

Plot it out. Fill your plate with fruits and vegetables, 1/4 with a serving of protein, and the last 1/4 with whole grains.

Make it homemade. You take in only about half of the calories, fat, and sodium when you eat a homecooked meal as opposed to dining out.

Brighten up. Shop at a local farmer's market to add more fresh fruits and vegetables - and variety - to your meals.
