One easy tip to improve your overall eating habits is to eliminate unhealthy snacks, like cookies, candy and soda from your kitchen. If you do not have bad foods available, you can not eat them.
The stealthy way to eat better is to sneak nutritious ingredients into your regular foods. This method works great with children and fussy eaters; you can also sneak nutritious content into your own food to help you eat healthy. There are an infinite number of possibilities on how to accomplish this. You could add white beans into cookie, bread, or cake batter, or you could add dry milk powder into your baked goods and smoothie-style drinks. This adds a lot of nutrients, and the flavor is masked by the other ingredients.
Eating cereals that are full of sugar first thing in the morning should be avoided. Many of these cereals not only contain a sugar overload, but they may also contain trans fats, synthetic preservatives and various chemicals. Switch your sugary cereal for oatmeal or another whole-grain cereal to enjoy a meal that is still fast, but that keeps you full longer.
Nutritionists are aware that highly processed foods should be eliminated, or greatly reduced, from the diet. It is the shells or husks of grains that provide most of their nutritional value; these husks are stripped away by extensive milling. Many products add items like wheat germ to try to return the nutrients to the end product, but does this really make sense? No, you should not.
A great nutritious food is nuts. A few handfuls of some natural almonds add a lot of fiber and tasty crunch to your diet.
When you begin using the above tips in your daily life, you’ll find it easier to make nutritious choices without having to think much about it. Once you get the basics, it gets easier to incorporate good nutrition into your daily life. Good health to you!
