Healthy Living: 6 Ways to Eat Healthier!

Comments Off

While browsing through one of my favorite magazines, I came across a Healthy Living article titled ‘6 Ways to Eat Healthier!’, courtesy of food blogger Tina Haupert and her new book Carrots ‘n’ Cake.

I’ve been trying to find the perfect diet for a while now, but I think what’s most important is not the brand of diet (i.e. Weight Watchers, etc.), but how well you personalize your very own custom diet plan!

I also dine out a lot, whether it’s for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. So, these tips really help!

1. Add flavor to your food!
“Instead of using butter and oils to give meals a boost, try low-calorie spice options like ginger, cumin and garlic powder.”

2. Follow the 2 out of 3 rule!
“I love going out to restaurants. But to keep from overdoing it, I pick 2 out of 3 big temptations: a cocktail, the bread basket or dessert.”

3. Eat slowly!
“Wolfing down your food results in eating more than you need to. If you take your time, you’ll be more satisfied and enjoy what you’re eating.”

4. Sip your drinks!
“I feel the same way about cocktails as I do about food: Pick something to sip slowly, not something to suck down! You’ll be less likely to drink one after another and pile on the calories. A good glass of wine always does the trick for me.”

5. Put your healthy food in one place!
“Sometimes I mindlessly munch on whatever I see in the fridge. But if I keep all my healthy choices in one cupboard, I know exactly where to look for good options.”

6. Mix up your salad!
“Break out of your salad rut! I used to bring the same salad for lunch every day. It was so boring that I’d throw it away and eat something unhealthy. Now I add fresh veggies, nuts, avocados, beans — things to keep me interested so I won’t stray from my plan!”
