Simple Changes for a Radical Health Transformation
By Donna Stark
What if I told you that you could make a radical change to your overall health and wellness without making any radical changes to the way you live? Would you believe me? Well, it's true! With just a few simple tweaks to the way you eat, you may be able to successfully reach all your health and fitness goals quicker than you could ever imagine! Curious as to what they are? Take a look at the following suggestions from your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic.
Start Your Day With Water
Don't panic! You can still enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning, but before you do, drink a tall glass of water first. You may not realize this, but when you wake up your body is already on the road to dehydration. It's important to stay a step ahead of it and replenish your hydration, and sipping on water instead of that cup of joe is the way to do it.
Add Protein to Your Breakfast
Does your typical breakfast consist only of pancakes, toast, or bagels? Do you always find yourself hungry before it's even time to grab lunch? If so, you may be missing out on something important in your meal -- protein! By adding some form of protein to your breakfast, you can feel fuller for longer, maintain a stable blood sugar level, and reduce those distracting cravings. Try incorporating peanut butter, eggs, Greek yogurt, or protein powder into your meal.
Make Your Meals Super
Picking out your favorite superhero is easy, but is it as easy to pick out your favorite superfood? Especially when there are so many delicious options to choose from? Superfoods are nutrient powerhouses. They are strong, powerful, and so beneficial to your overall health and wellness that it really is a no-brainer to add more of them to your diet. Try to incorporate at least one into every meal you eat. Here are some of the most common ones to choose from.
- Leafy greens
- Sweet potatoes
- Goji berries
- Dark chocolate
Choose Healthy Desserts
You can easily satisfy your craving for dessert without consuming loads of sugar and artificial ingredients. Here are some ideas on how to swap out your favorite treats with healthier versions of themselves.
- Sorbet or frozen yogurt for ice cream
- All-natural smoothies for sugary popsicles
- Homemade energy balls for brownies or cookies
- A bowl of fruit for a slice of pie
Making a Radical Change With Simple Steps
As you can see, it doesn't take much to turn an unhealthy diet into a healthier one, but the key thing to remember is that you have to stay consistent. By making these changes to your daily meals, you can look forward to better health and an improved quality of life!
