Do you wish you could eat healthier?
Today I wanted to simply share some encouragement and ways you can truly eat healthier every day. Our food is designed to FUEL our bodies; not just fill our bodies. When I learned that and really started to appreciate it, I found eating healthier became easier and easier. Now, truth be told, I also LOVE all kinds of junk food, beer, and other goodies. So don’t be alarmed. I am qualified to help you eat healthier. I’m also qualified to help you enjoy food in ways that are best for you. It’s a win-win in my book.
Here are my 3 easy tips for eating healthier.
- When you are beginning, don’t try to restrict it all. Restrictions work for some people. And it doesn’t work for others (me). When I am told I need to restrict too many things, I simply want them more. Pick one thing that you can eliminate and go from there. For me, it was soda. It took a long time because my habit was deep, but now I can’t tell you the last time I’ve had a pop. It’s been years and my body thanks me.
- Try adding in nutrition throughout your day. When you have a sandwich for lunch, could you have carrot sticks vs chips? For breakfast, could you try a protein dense meal vs empty carbs like bagels? Pick one area and go with it!
- If you are new to label reading, here is the ONE thing to look for: the word ARTIFICIAL. There are so many hidden artificial things in our foods but if the label calls it out specifically, it’s not worth consuming. It’s a great way to get used to label reading and paying attention to your food.
