Every day, we make choices about the food we eat and our lifestyles. We can make choices for ourselves and our families that make a real difference to our ability to remain healthy and active. For people trying to eat healthily and maintain their weight, simple healthy food habits can help keep us on the right track.
Here are some ways you can accomplish this:
Limit unhealthy snack foods in the home. Be careful about the foods you keep at hand. It’s more challenging to eat in moderation if you have unhealthy snacks and treats at the ready. Keep healthy foods in the front and less healthy foods in the back of the refrigerator and cupboards.
Instead of eating processed snack foods, snack on healthy food such as vegetables such as carrots, snow peas, or celery along with a spicy hummus dip or almond butter.
Flavor your foods with herbs, vinegar, mustard, or lemon instead of fatty sauces.
Make the right snack choices
Other healthy snack choices include blueberries, avocados, olives, seeds, and nuts. Avoid Cashew and Peanuts due to their high lectin content. Additionally, avoid sugary foods such as ice cream, concentrated fruit Juices, sodas. Try to avoid eating when you are not actually hungry. Find other ways to fill the time, like going for a walk or reading a book. Well-balanced eating, along with physical activity, is the most important thing you can do to stay at a healthy weight. Eating healthy is the beginning of a new you.
