Deciding to eat healthier is overwhelming as it’s a lifestyle change, but here are some tips to make it easier for you to stick with your goals.
It’s hard to say no to your favorite foods when you decide to start eating better, but the good news is you don’t have to. Instead, make some adjustments to your recipes like replacing all-purpose flour with spelt or whole wheat flour. Spelt flour actually works really well for baked goods because it has a maple flavor.
Prep Lots of Grains and Legumes
Over the weekend when you have time prep batches of grains and legumes, which will be a side, a base for grain bowls, or salads garnishes for lunches and dinners.
Snack on Fruits and Vegetables
Instead of reaching for chips and dip or cookies, cut up some fruits and vegetables and make a platter. They’re fun to much on and there’s so much variety that you won’t get bored.
Buy Frozen Fruits and Vegetables
Not only do frozen fruits and vegetables keep for a long time, but there are so many ways to use them. Add them to your yogurt or oatmeal or whip up a smoothie for breakfast!
Eat One Vegetarian Meal a Day
We know this may be hard for meat-lovers, but for one meal load up on plant-based ingredients. You’ll not only be helping your waistline, but you’ll also be having a great impact on the environment.
