Healthy Recipes and Meals
Do you want to eat healthy and get in shape? Eating healthy doesn’t mean giving up the foods you love, but rather learning new tricks on how to make them healthier so they are still enjoyable. Dey project from deyproject.com has some tips for you:
For example, swapping out a white sandwich bun for whole wheat or rye would be an easy way to save yourself the carbs and calories. Avoid fried food and meat high in saturated fat like bacon.
Eat more fiber-rich foods like vegetables and fruits. They will keep you full for longer and keep your blood sugar stable.
Cooking healthy meals doesn’t have to take a lot of time, either. If you’re busy during the day, try preparing recipes ahead of time so that they can be cooked quickly when it’s mealtime, or use frozen vegetables in place of fresh ones if necessary.
Some favorite clean eating dishes are chicken tacos with black beans & corn salsa; roasted cod on mixed greens salad; wheatberry salad with goat cheese and veggies.
Try to avoid unnecessary carbs like white bread, pizza dough, and pasta that you might use in fast food or restaurant meals.
Whole wheat pasta; brown rice tortillas made with whole grains like corn or quinoa instead of flour; low-sugar oatmeal is a good substitute to catch cravings for something sweet.
Put out an always stocked pantry so that you’ll have healthy ingredients on hand when the mood strikes for a meal outside the home.
Instead of drinking sodas, try drinking natural fruit juices. That way, you’ll be getting a boost of vitamins and antioxidants, without the added sugar from sodas.
Also, take some time for yourself. Make sure to take a break every now and then, even if it’s just for five minutes of meditation or stretching.
Incorporate these healthy eating habits into your life on an ongoing basis–you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the results!
Remember that balance is key when it comes to nutrition-so don’t feel as though you have to exclude any food groups from your diet in order to stay lean and trim. Just make conscious choices with what you eat each day and about how often you indulge in more than one serving of something sweet (like dessert).
