5 Ways to Eat Healthier Without Really Trying
Do you know what’s in your food? Probably not, given the number of chemicals and impossible-to-pronounce ingredients in both our packaged and whole-food options. We live in a time where “fat-free” and “sugar-free” labels rule, and the government is not rushing to make listing ingredients a totally transparent process. That’s why mindful eating is more important than ever. Scroll through to see five easy ways you can eat healthier without even trying.
Make sure to include protein, carbohydrates, and fat at every meal. This will give you the energy to optimize your day and make sure you stay full for longer.
If you are eating a packaged food that contains sugar, make sure it's low on the nutrition list. The lower the ranking, the less sugar is used compared to other ingredients.
Instead of obsessing over calories, obsess over the number of ingredients used. The fewer the ingredients, the better.
Make sure you focus on eating healthy fats from foods like nuts, fatty fish, and olive oil.
It's time to start taking your coffee or tea black. If you need a little something to dull the acidity, try milk or almond milk instead of cream, and please skip the sugar.
