Posted by: | Posted on: September 1, 2017

Most people I know have a difficult time with healthy eating. They do not consider the foods they are putting in their body and the nutrients they might be missing from their diet causing low energy levels. Little do they know that with just as few simple changes in their diet can lead to feeling much better. Below are some adjustments you can make to your diet to help in healthy eating and feeling great.

The first step in healthy eating is to be aware of what your are eating. Pay attention to the foods your eating monitor their nutritional facts. Consider the sugar, salt, and fat contents. Be cautious of the types of snack you are eating especially when your distract such as while watching television. Isn’t it way to easy to wolf down a carton of Oreos while watching your favorite program (they are definitely my weakness). That’s why I don’t keep them in the house and I try to snack on fruits and vegetables while watching TV which leads me to my next tip to healthy eating.

Keep the unhealthy snacks out of the house, why be tempted? By removing the junk food from your home you no long have the temptation to give in. By avoiding these foods you will avoid sacrificing your weight loss goals and keep to your healthy eating plan. But if your anything like me you’ll need something sweet to get through the day which is why I always have a fridge flooding with some type of fruit like grapes and strawberries. Another thing I like to keep around is dark chocolate,for when the chocolate monster attacks. However, though its a “healthier” alternative its still best to snack in moderation and not over do it.

Healthy Eating On The Go

Packing your lunch for work or school is another way to keep to your healthy eating plan. Though it may be convenient to go out for lunch every day, restaurants and fast foods are often high in unhealthy fats and sodium. By bringing your own lunch you are absolutely sure that your are eating as healthy as possible. An easy solution is to bring the lefts overs from last nights dinner. How hard can heating it up be, right! Plus you save loads of money!

Adding more veggies to your healthy eating plan is also a quick way to ensure healthy eating. Low in calories and high in all the right vitamins and minerals, vegetables give the most nutritional value per serving. Vegetables, booooring, you say! Just eat the different colors. You get a wider range of nutrients too. For example, red vegetables contain lycopene an awesome anti-oxidant. The infamous green veggies are high in vitamins b,c, and calcium. You see eating your veggies can be fun and nutritious.

So, follow these simple ideas and watch your energy levels sore and feel great.  Good luck on your healthy eating endeavors.
