We feel a bit hesitant to publish this “public service announcement” on the heels of National S’mores Day, but August is National Wellness Month.

National Wellness Month focuses on self-care, stress management, and creating healthy routines, including eating.

So here’s our PSA.

These eight tips for healthy eating come from the National Health Service—of the U.K.! The advice is universal.

1. Base your meals on higher fiber starchy carbohydrates (i.e., unprocessed or minimally processed whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and beans).

2. Eat lots of fruit and vegetables.

3. Eat more fish, including a portion of oily fish (the latter include eel, herring, mackerel, salmon, sardines, sprats, trout, and tuna).

4. Cut down on saturated fat and sugar.

5. Eat less salt: no more than 6g a day for adults.

6. Get active and be a healthy weight.

7. Do not get thirsty (i.e., drink enough water).

8. Do not skip breakfast.
