Emory’s summer nutrition challenge, Operation: Eat Right is back!

Participation is through Healthy Emory Connect, Emory's health and wellness platform and mobile app. Throughout the challenge period (June 1-July 12, 2020), you can earn extra points on the platform by completing multiple Eating Healthy Journeys.

  • More Veggies in No Time: Looking for a quick addition to meals and snacks? Go for one filled with fiber, nutrients, vitamins and minerals. That’s vegetables. With so many different choices and easy prep, you can be a veggie master in no time. 
  • Smart Portions: Healthy eating is not just about what you eat, it’s also about how much. The size of meals and snacks can make a big difference when it comes to making sure your calorie intake is on track for your goals. Learn some simple tricks to make smart portion choices. 
  • Eat Like a Mediterranean: Mediterranean-style eating is filled with healthy foods like veggies, fruits, whole grains, fish and healthy fats. Learn how to put together delicious meals and snacks at home. And you can go Mediterranean when you’re out to eat too. 
  • Go Mediterranean: Take a cue from Mediterranean eaters. Learn how this diet can help you lose weight and lower your risk of heart disease. Include plenty of vegetables, fish, whole grains and moderate heart-healthy fats. Plus, find out how to shop for Mediterranean-style foods to keep you on track. 
  • Fit in More Fruit: Want a sweet option for meals and snacks that is high in nutrients, fiber, vitamins and minerals? Reach for the fruit bowl. With so many different fruits, you can discover new tastes or fall back in love with your favorites. Try new ways to add fruit to your meals and snacks.
