Finding Better Health Through Food: 3 Easy Ideas

By Genevieve Cunningham

There are so many ways to improve your health. For starters, you can head to the doctor for a checkup. You could also choose to increase your workout time or intensity, change your supplements a bit, or focus on weight loss or better sleep. But there's an even easier and more effective way to improve your health. Food. We are what we eat, and if we want to be healthy, we have to eat healthy. If you're interested in how changing your diet can totally transform your health, take a look at these three easy ideas to add to the mix today.

Leafy Greens

You probably already know that salads are healthy, but why? It's because of the leafy greens. Leafy greens -- things such as lettuce, kale, spinach, and collards -- are full of Vitamin C, fiber, and even protein. They're great for improving digestion, strengthening the immune system, and bringing other benefits to your overall health. And they're actually really easy to add to your life. You can go for the obvious option of salad, or you can add them to other recipes such as wraps, side dishes, and more. 

Always Choose a Vegetable

If you're faced with choosing sides for your main dish, always choose the vegetable. Sure, you might want mashed potatoes or fried rice, but vegetables will be a lower calorie, more nutritionally dense option. This is a really simple way that you can improve your diet with low effort and big results. 

Always Choose Water

We've been so conditioned to need flavor in our drinks. We think we need tea or soda or flavored coffee. But we don't. We want these things, but we need water. We need water for our teeth, our digestion, and our skin. We need water to stay hydrated. We need water to keep us alive and well! Anytime that you have the option, choose water. The more water you drink, the more improvement you'll see to your overall health.

Changing your diet can be hard for some people. We get used to our diets, so making changes takes self-discipline and effort. Try making small changes such as these to get the ball rolling. With some small, but meaningful changes, you can really improve your health and wellness from the inside out.
