Consuming a well-balanced healthy diet is so vital to us, especially due to the busy lives we all lead as a result of our jobs, lifestyles etc. A well-balanced diet should be able to provide our bodies with all the nutritious elements it require. But most certainly, we all have an idea of what healthy foods are and there’s definitely a growing community of healthy eating folks!
Why not make little improvements to our diet if we can?
You do not need to go overboard and buy all new ingredients, recipe books to start eating healthy. Eating healthy can begin from just maybe swapping a galaxy chocolate bar with a more nutritious protein bar that provides you with more energy, keep you satisfied for longer between meals and yes! You can get the chocolate in there too. Or if you’re out for a meal, you could swap the oily chips for a healthy salad as this will improve your fibre intake, the antioxidant boost which will make you feel refreshed, improved mood, skin and nail benefits! Similarly, having an avocado on toast or an egg on toast in morning instead of the sugary cereal can leave you feeling full for hours and ready to take on the day!
Portion control is just as important too. Stop piling the plate high and ending up feeling bloated by the end of your meal. It is far better to have more smaller meals than one or two huge meals a day as this gives your digestive system a chance to work and extract what it needs from the food.
So folks, you don’t need to give up on everything you enjoy eating but just making healthy choices can ensure your body is getting the required nutrients that it needs.
