About Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron”:
Marvel Studios presents “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, the epic follow-up to the biggest Super Hero movie of all time. When Tony Stark tries to jumpstart a dormant peacekeeping program, things go awry and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, including Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, The Incredible Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye, are put to the ultimate test as the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. As the villainous Ultron emerges, it is up to The Avengers to stop him from enacting his terrible plans, and soon uneasy alliances and unexpected action pave the way for an epic and unique global adventure.
Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” stars Robert Downey Jr., who returns as Iron Man, along with Chris Hemsworth as Thor, Mark Ruffalo as Hulk and Chris Evans as Captain America. Together with Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow and Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye, and with the additional support of Don Cheadle as James Rhodes/War Machine, Cobie Smulders as Agent Maria Hill, Stellan Skarsgård as Erik Selvig and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury, the team must reassemble to defeat James Spader as Ultron, a terrifying technological villain hell-bent on human extinction. Along the way, they confront two mysterious and powerful newcomers, Pietro Maximoff, played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Wanda Maximoff, played by Elizabeth Olsen and meet an old friend in a new form when Paul Bettany becomes Vision.
Written and directed by Joss Whedon and produced by Kevin Feige, p.g.a., Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” is based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series “The Avengers,” first published in 1963. Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Jeremy Latcham, Patricia Whitcher, Stan Lee and Jon Favreau serve as executive producers. Get set for an action-packed thrill ride when The Avengers return in Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” on May 1, 2015. 
About Marvel’s Avengers Assemble
In the animated action-adventure series, “Marvel’s Avengers Assemble,” the world’s most well-known Super Hero team – Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Hawkeye and Black Widow, along with newcomer Falcon – unite to battle threats no single hero could withstand. Training and living together in their new headquarters, Avengers Tower, the heroes must overcome their differences and learn to work together to defend the world.  Whether it’s Loki trying to conquer Asgard, Attuma driving the Atlantean Army into New York City or Dracula unleashing vampire hordes, the planet’s most menacing villains don’t stand a chance when the Avengers assemble!

Spring Clean Your Eating Habits – Tips from Dietitian Lanette Kovachi

Spring Clean Your Eating Habits This Nutrition Month

Nutrition Tips from Lanette Kovachi, Global Dietitian at SUBWAY® Restaurants

Now that winter is officially over, don’t just spring clean your home, spring clean your eating habits! Take advantage of the change in season to dust off your winter blues and kick start yourself into healthier habits that will carry you through till next spring!

To help you start this season off fresh, SUBWAY® Restaurants Global Dietitian, Lanette Kovachi has some simple tips that anyone can incorporate into their daily lives to get started on the path to healthier eating:

Eat a Balanced Breakfast

Making healthy choices begins at breakfast. Eating a balanced breakfast every morning can help promote healthy living. Try to avoid bagels, muffins, and donuts as they are packed with empty calories, loaded with simple carbs and low in protein – the perfect combo to leave you feeling hungry after a short while.

Instead, choose a breakfast that contains a good source of protein and fibre, but not high in calories like an omelette. Try swapping out a regular egg for egg whites in your omelette and pair with whole grain toast, or try a hearty bowl of oatmeal made with protein-packed low fat milk to help you feel full longer.

Snack Smart

Snacking between meals is an important way to keep your body satisfied, so you don’t overeat at lunch and dinner. Smart mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks should be high in fibre, and/or should include protein.

Tip: Try fresh fruit, cut veggies with hummus, whole wheat crackers with light cheese, low fat yogurt, whole grain granola bars, or a handful of nuts.

Go Light at Lunch

Don’t lose your momentum at lunch. Stick to a lunch that is packed with lean meats, fruits, veggies and high fibre grains. Try a SUBWAY® sandwich with lean turkey, chicken or roast beef on 9-grain wheat bread.

Tips:

·         Swap your regular SUBWAY® sandwich for a SUBWAY® chopped salad. It has all the veggie goodness in a bowl without the bread. Enjoy it as a vegetarian option or add your choice of meat for added protein like SUBWAY® Restaurants grilled, all white meat chicken strips made with no artificial colours or preservatives.

·         In need of a warm up? Try pairing a SUBWAY® chopped salad with the new Tomato Basil soup, available at SUBWAY® Restaurants for a limited time. The Tomato Basil soup is vegetarian (may contain dairy).

Downsize Dinner Portions

By dinner time, you may be feeling good about the choices you’ve made throughout the day and decide to reward yourself with a double-portioned dinner. Don’t do it. Stick to eating sensible portions throughout the entire day.

Tip: When making dinner at home, try to keep your portions down by using a smaller dinner plate. As a general guideline, keep your meat serving to about a quarter of your plate, your starch (i.e. potatoes, rice or pasta) to a quarter and fill the rest of your plate with veggies. Try to eat just enough so you feel satisfied, but not uncomfortable.

Cut Back on Sodium

We all know that sodium is something that we need to be mindful of. Here are some simple ways you can cut back:

·         Making fruits and vegetables the basis of your diet will slash sodium levels. Fresh fruit and vegetables are filling, healthy, and naturally low in sodium or sodium free. And best of all, it will fill your diet with tons of disease fighting-nutrients.

·         Read the nutrition facts on the packaging at the grocery store to evaluate some of the everyday items you buy. For example, look at your sandwich bread and compare it to the other labels – try to pick the bread that has the lowest sodium and the highest fibre.

·         While cooking at home, replace table salt with salt-free seasonings; there is a delicious variety available in the spice aisle of the grocery store. 

Be a role model for healthier eating

Making healthier eating choices and leading by example is a great way to influence positive changes in people’s lives, especially children. When you cannot eat together at home, choose a better on-the-go option like SUBWAY® Restaurants. SUBWAY® has a kid specific meal deal called a Kids’ Pak® which comes with a four-inch sandwich, apple slices, Minute Maid Apple Juice and a giveaway such as a toy – just what you need to make eating better easy and fun!

My View:

I think that reviewing our eating habits, and trying to keep them in check, should be important year-round.  The reality is we all fall off the wagon every so often, and that’s fine as long as we bring it back.

Being responsible for my daughter’s diet was definitely much easier when she was younger.  Now, as a teen, she has developed an eating habit that I don’t approve of all of the time.  I am; however, proud that I did instil some values that shine through every so often.  When my daughter was little, I would only allow fast-food eating a few times a year and that was the only time she was allowed to have pop too.  If we were out, and she was hungry, I’d allow her to pick something to eat at SUBWAY®.

Now, as a teenager, she ‘hangs out’ with her friends and has junk food much too often. That’s what teenagers do, after all.  I’m happy that when she goes out; especially when she goes out with her friends, she still prefers going to SUBWAY®.  In my opinion, it’s the healthier option out there.

Lanette Kovachi has served as the Corporate Dietitian for the SUBWAY® brand since 2000. In this important role, she oversees the nutritional information for all SUBWAY® menu items and advises the Headquarters team on nutrition and health-related issues.
