Healthy doesn’t have to mean boring! Check out these nutritional tips:
First thing in the morning: It is important to stabilize blood sugar levels as soon as you wake up. Freshly squeezed orange juice is a great option to start your day for this purpose. Don’t forget protein! Your source of protein in the morning doesn’t necessarily have to be eggs. Beans and lentils are also a good option, although it may take time to get accustomed to eating these as a breakfast food.
Lunch: Your midday meal should include the same elements as dinner. If you are used to having a sandwich for lunch, add lettuce, tomato and cucumber for a colorful assortment of vegetables. Choose turkey or chicken breast, which are low in fat and high in protein, and a low fat cheese and whole wheat bread—and you’ve turned a basic sandwich into a wonderfully balanced meal!
Throughout the day: Remember to keep healthy snacks with you during the day. Nuts and dry fruit (without added sugars) can go along way in stabilizing blood sugar levels and keeping unhealthy cravings at bay. Limit high-calorie snack foods and desserts like chips, cookies, cakes, and full-fat ice cream. Watch your portion sizes. Even healthy foods can lead to weight gain if you consume too much.
Before dinner: A cup of tea before you eat is a great way to prepare your stomach for the digestive process. Many cultures have maintained this tradition for thousands of years.
Dinner: Your last meal of the day should be simple yet contain a variety of vegetables (think as colorful as you can) and lean protein. Ideally, your source of protein should be fish at least twice a week.
Tune out distractions: Eating in a calm and peaceful environment is beneficial in many ways, especially because it enables you to focus on chewing your meal thoroughly. Since digestion begins in the mouth with the breakdown of food, this simple detail contributes immensely to overall systemic health.
