There is lots of information out there about healthy eating and what it looks like. Depending on the source it can be good or bad advice and unfortunately sometimes it is hard to tell one from the other. So here are some easy tips to follow that will help you on your wellness journey.
- When grocery shopping stick to the outside. The fresh fruit and veggies, meat, and dairy is all on the outside aisles, the processed stuff in boxes, try and stay away from that.
- Fill your plate half full of veggies and fruit. The more colorful your plate is with veggies the more likely you are getting all the vitamins and minerals you need.
- Eat more whole grains as opposed to refined grain, such as whole grain bread not white bread, whole wheat pasta not bleached pasta.
- Drink water. Make sure you are not drinking calories by cutting out pop and other sugary drinks. If water starts to get boring throw in some fruit, veggies, or mint to help spice it up.
These are just a few tips to help you get started eating healthy. Try doing them one at a time as opposed to jumping in with both feet and setting yourself up for failure. Slow and steady is how you win the healthy lifestyle race, keep moving forward and don’t let one little stumble set you back to far!
