PANAMA CITY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - As the temperatures start rising, it’s a good time to start incorporating fresh fruits and vegetables into your diet. The NewsChannel 7 Today team is continuing their Summer Shape-up with nutrition tips from Registered Dietitian Marcia Pell.

Pell says eliminating entire food groups, as many fad diets suggest, is not healthy. Instead, she suggests getting the majority of your nutrition from plant-based foods. She says half of your plate should consist of fruits and vegetables. Incorporating healthy fats and lean protein is also key.
