Do you sometimes wonder how you can make healthy choices without giving into temptations? Being constantly having to be on your toes, whether it’s rushing to work or running around the kids, it can sometimes be difficult to take care of yourself.
When it comes to eating healthy if you choose to go on strict diets and if that’s what works for you, by all means, go ahead. But in this post, I’m going to talk about how you can start eating healthy one step at a time by making simple and small changes in your everyday routine. These are some simple strategies that you can use in your everyday life. Remember it’s those small changes you make that ultimately matter in the end.
Make it Colorful
Making your food colorful by adding fruits makes it all the more fun. If you take lunch to your work, carrying fruits like blueberries, strawberries, grapes etc. will give that extra pop of color to an otherwise boring lunch. The ‘Rainbow Food Trend’ has been going on for quite a while on Instagram – why not make it healthy by making a fun Rainbow Salad?!
Sneak in those Veggies
Not feeling like having a salad? Don’t worry. You’re not the only one. Try and sneak in more veggies in other things like smoothies, omelets, or pasta. You can even make spiralized noodles from veggies like zucchini, carrots, cucumber etc. with the help of a spiralizer or a julienne tool – I mean no one can say no to noodles, right?
Change up your Plates
Recently, I came across an article that stated that eating controlled portions is also dependent on the size of plates you use to eat. I gave this a try and well, it does work to a certain extent guys. You see the human mind is very tricky and by using smaller dishes or slimmer glasses you can trick your brain into believing that you are eating more. Mind = blown.
Eating healthy does not necessarily mean cutting down on all treats.
In fact, the body can sometimes start craving things if you deprive it of all kinds of treats. That’s why I always prefer eating healthier treats instead of going all out every single time.
In the warmer days, I almost always crave something sweet after dinner. And then I almost always end up with that guilty feeling when I indulge in a scoop of ice cream or cookie. Does that happen with you too?
So when I was recently sent these Arctic Zero Fit Frozen Desserts to try out, I knew I’ve got to try them out! My husband is a huge fan of Peanut Butter so that was his favorite flavor while I really enjoyed the Rocky Road Trip flavor that had chocolate with toasted almonds & marshmallow in it.
They are –
- Lactose Free
- Low Glycemic
- Gluten free and
Plus each pint just has 300 calories (or 75 cal per serving). Now that’s what I call a winner!
A perfect zero-guilt pleasure whenever your sweet tooth strikes.
We all know how important it is to drink water – so I’m not about to go on and on about the importance of staying hydrated. Instead what I’m going to say is this – plain water can sometimes be boring. So try out flavored water or infused water by adding lemons or fruits like strawberries or even mint or cucumber in your water.
By taking these small steps at a time, you will unknowingly start eating healthy and your body will thank you for that.
What are your favorite ways to avoid temptations and eat in a healthier way?
