Tips on Eating Healthy

Eating healthy is an important way to keep your body at its best. There are plenty of diets out there.  One of the important things is finding one that fits in with your lifestyle. Sometimes it’s difficult to figure out where to start, but there are some simple things you can do as part of a grander “new you” diet. Replacing unhealthy snacks with yogurt, eating vegetables, like salads with kalamata olives, and eating proper portions are a few ways to practice healthy eating habits.

Eat Yogurt as a Snack
Even when you’re looking to eat healthy, it’s important not to take all the fun out of eating. So while ice cream and sweets may be off limits, you can still enjoy a healthy snack option. Yogurt can be both delicious and health-conscious, especially the increasingly popular Greek yogurt. While both options are a great alternative to comfort food, Greek yogurt cuts out a lot of the sugar that comes with the standard yogurt and can provide more protein. Either option you choose will be low in calories, so don’t be afraid to add these to your diet if you are on a strict calorie limit.
Go Green
A diet high in vegetables is the cornerstone of any healthy eating plan. Quite simply, it provides you with the necessary vitamins and minerals necessary to sustain good health, while at the same time, not bogging you down with unnecessary empty calories and fat. Vegetables get a bad rap a lot of the time, but eating vegetables doesn’t have to feel like homework. Salads can be rich in flavor, but it’s up to you what you put in it. For something with a tangy kick, try making a Greek salad with some kalamata olives and feta cheese crumbles. They are sure to give your taste buds a welcomed surprise.
Portion Control
Lastly, eating smart is all about portion control. Too often, we find the urge to eat until we feel full; sometimes to an uncomfortable capacity. The healthier thing to do, however, is to eat just enough to be satisfied. Check the recommended serving size of what you eat and stick as close to it as you can. Healthy eating trends point to eating smaller, but more frequent meals. This promotes good metabolic health and will also help you not feel so groggy after you eat. Now, this does not give you free reign to eat whatever you want, but it will help you out if you want to treat yourself every once in a while.
