Are you making a New Year’s resolution to eat healthier in 2017? Here are three tips to help you eat better this year.
This year, say “no way!” to processed foods. You might love the convenience and taste of frozen dinners and potato chips, but healthy eating is all about how nutritious your food is. Processed foods have little to no nutritional value, and include many artificial ingredients your body does not actually handle well. Choose more whole foods like fruits and vegetables for better digestion and other benefits.
Sugar is often added to foods to enhance their flavor, but scientists are becoming more and more confident that consuming too much unnatural sugar is bad for your long-term health. It has the potential to become very addictive; pumping too many added or artificial ingredients into your body over time can lead to serious health problems like obesity and diabetes.
Home cooking is one of the most effective ways to train your brain to crave healthier foods. Learn a new recipe weekly to keep things consistent. If you stick with it, you will learn how to prepare over 50 new recipes this year – an excellent way to keep you motivated to eat a variety of healthy foods at home.
Make healthy eating a priority this year, so you can feel good and enjoy your food while making improvements to your diet.
