One simple rule of thumb to follow is to shop on the outside of the grocery store. Here you’ll find ample fresh produce, meat and dairy. Take advantage of the savings offered by Groupon coupons and enjoy the healthy cookware that’s offered at personal creations. Steaming food instead of frying is always a healthier option. It allows the nutrients to remain in the food and eliminates the need for added fats. Select one healthy recipe to cook a great meal for yourself, you family and friends. Accept offers to bring healthy, homemade side dishes. You can even share recipes. Cooking with fresh ingredients is not only simple, but just about as tasty as you can get. Move over processed, high sugar high sodium foods, fresh fare is on the come-back. You don’t have to be an expert cook to eat healthy or have all kinds of time. A little planning, a little willingness to experiment and a lot of determination will go a long way towards developing healthy eating habits.
Commit to keeping healthy snacks precut and preassembled. Just like it’s so easy to grab a bag of chips, grab a bag of salt free air popped popcorn. It’s super healthy and a very good substitute to chips. Keep snack baggies with sliced carrots and celery for quick, on the go snacks. Start experimenting with assembling your own trail mix. You can even brand it yourself. Good luck on your new healthy eating journey!
