Most folks will agree that healthy eating can get old quickly. There are two immediate reasons for this. Due to the strict measures some folks take to clean up their diet, such as completely cutting out everything they find so tasty, it is usually labeled as bad food. The other is that the healthy food being switched over to is bland.
Healthy eating doesn’t have to be super strict or boring! Here are a few tips to help you make healthier choices that you might enjoy implementing into your daily routine!
Add Greek Yogurt To Your Diet!
Greek yogurt provides an excellent nutrient and protein boost and probiotics to keep your digestive health in check.
You can replace sour cream with recipes that call for it! The texture is slightly thicker (depending on the brand you buy), but the resulting flavor is often better! Add Greek yogurt into smoothies, create delicious creamy dressings, or use it in place of sour cream in ranch or onion dips for a tasty and healthier version!
Flavor Your Water!
There are many reasons why keeping track of how much water you drink daily is essential. However, the fact is that many of us need to drink more! Proper hydration is vital to good health. You can help keep water from being ’boring’ by infusing it with raspberries, strawberries, lemon, orange, or cucumber to give you a tasty and refreshing treat that is caffeine and sugar-free, allowing you to meet your hydration goals much more effortless!
Plan Your Meals Ahead Of Time
This seems like a no-brainer, but with hectic schedules and ending up too tired to cook some days, it’s a true benefit to stick with a healthier diet plan when mapping out your weekly meals. Research easy and quick-to-prep recipes that you don’t have to spend so much time on in the kitchen, and if you need to, prep more complex meals over the weekend and refrigerate or freeze meal-sized portions.
Experiment with your food and seasonings, and be open to new things. Keep your plate ‘colorful’ chock full of your favorite healthy fruits and veggies. For a dessert or snack that may not be the most nutritious, keep the portion to a minimum and compensate for the rest of your daily diet to accommodate the potential calorie-dense treat.
We hope these tips help you in your quest for better health!
