Healthy Eating: How to Make It Easier

healthy eating

We all want to eat healthy, but sometimes that doughnut or slice of pizza is just too tempting. Now while avoiding temptations may be hard, there are ways that you can make eating healthy easy and enjoyable.

1. Recipes

First search for recipes. Pinterest has a plethora of healthy recipes for meat eaters, vegetarians and even vegans. There is something for everyone; you just have to be willing to dig through the recipes to find the right ones for you.

2. Eat a Healthy Breakfast

I know this can be challenging for some, but breakfast really is the most important meal of the day! Eating a protein packed breakfast can help you feel less hungry throughout the day. If you are like me and hate eating breakfast, try grabbing your favorite piece of fresh fruit before you head out.

3. Meal Prep

This is a sure-fire way to stay on track. If you have trouble preparing your lunches in the morning, meal prep will take this worry away! On Sundays get together a handful of recipes that you want to cook. You can choose to make multiple recipes or just stick to one and switch it up every week. Follow the recipe and put your food in individual containers and voila! Easy and ready-made lunch every day!

4. Healthy Snacks

The downfall for most is snacking. When afternoon rolls around it is easy to reach for something not so healthy like chips or sweets. The key is to make sure you have healthy snacks on hand. Veggies, fruits, hummus and granola bars are all great options.

5. Don’t Deprive Yourself

It’s already hard enough to stay on track and follow a healthy diet, but it is even harder when you deprive yourself of some of your favorite foods. Moderation is key. It is okay to eat chocolate here and there and its okay to eat pasta. Depriving yourself of your favorite foods will only lead to failure or a fall off the wagon. It is important to remember that it’s okay to have treats here and there. As long as you learn to limit your intake, you will be incredibly successful!'
