It's safe to say that just about all of us could pay a little closer attention to what we eat. That, of course, is easier said than done. These days, it's a lot more convenient to eat something that is unhealthy but inexpensive and quick than it is to find something nutritious. With that in mind, here is some advice on healthy eating. We hope you will find these three pointers to be easy and successful ways to make your diet more healthful.
Are you properly hydrated? Yes, our first item of advice about healthful eating is actually about drinking. That is because getting enough water helps makes you feel sated (i.e. "full") and supports a healthy body. Do note that many food experts advise against drinking too much as you eat, though, since that can interfere with digestion. You can also drink brewed tea, but avoid things like fruit juices, commercially prepared tea or soft drinks, since these have so much refined sugar that they are not worth their calories.
You're not eating enough vegetables: Even if you think you do a good job of eating vegetables, there is probably room for you to try to incorporate even more into your meals. That's because vegetables are so incredibly good for us. If you can go beyond the usual suspects like spinach and carrots and try to eat squash, parsnips and other vegetables most people don't normally eat, you will be getting a wonderful plethora of vitamins, minerals and fiber. Try some more salads with these recipes, this recipe for delicious roasted beet salad, or perhaps try some vegetarian meals or raw food.
Try herbs and spices: Many healthy meals are made without things like butter because these add flavor, but also lots of calories and fat. Consequently, some healthy recipes just are not very exciting to eat. To add a little pizzazz without added fat or calories, experiment with spices. We really like cumin, turmeric, rosemary and thyme. You might also consider buying a commercial blend of herbs and/or spices (though watch out that this blend doesn't contain too much salt). Or grow fresh herbs in your garden or kitchen!
