Simple Ways To Make Healthy Eating A Snap

 

Most of us follow current discussions on healthy vegetables and super juices. We know the dangers of fried foods and trans fats, and the values of healthy oils like olive oils. But putting everything that we know into the best practice can take a little tweaking.

Make fast food the exception rather than the rule 

Reserve pizzas, burgers and fries for once in a while stops, and cross them off of your regular list. If they take up more than one weekly lunch or dinner slot, you might want to try a few new restaurants that emphasize Mediterranean diets or fish dinners.

Always make sure vegetables and fruits take up the most room on your plate

Eat five or more vegetables and fruits a day. Make Farmer’s market or the fresh produce aisle a regular stop when you shop. Make low fat milk and lean cuts of meat regular choices.

The next time you shop, rethink your list

Go armed with a bunch of new recipes for fruits and vegetables, fish and lean meats. If you still haven’t tried kale, or have heard a lot about raw beet juice, consider adding it to the list. There are a million ways to eat healthy – just keep looking for the ones that suit you.

Learn to eat slowly and chew thoroughly

Nutritionists will tell you chewing your food to a watery consistency is a way to predigest it so your body will be able to easily benefit from all of the vitamins and minerals. Gobbling food can leave undigested food in the system that then becomes a struggle to digest. Thoroughly chewing food will fill you up faster and make losing weight easier too.Trim your eating out schedule and when you do go out, choose restaurants that specialize in healthy menus.

When you eat at home, take the time to cook fresh whole foods

Make eating a separate event from the computer, phone and the TV. Mindless eating can mean eating too much of the wrong foods too fast and too often. Instead, make dinner an event, time for good food, close friends and great conversation.

Pick some new exercises to match your healthy diet

When you shave calories and take in more vitamins adding exercise can boost your metabolism and help keep your weight level.

Eating better, eating simpler and enjoying the whole process more can translate into better health long range.
When this works right, eating healthy becomes fun and easily pushes fast food out of the picture.
