I love to cook and eat. In my personal life I try to follow the 80/20 rule of eating healthy 80% of the time and having whatever I want 20% of the time. Over the years I have learned many tips and tricks that have helped me eat healthier. Below are five of my tips for healthier eating.
One of the best ways I have found to incorporate healthier meals is to meal plan. When I have a meal plan I am less likely to order delivery or grab take out. Check out my full post about meal planning here.
A great way to ensure that you are eating healthier is to make your choices easier by prepping your meals ahead of time. I love to make a bunch of smoothie packs at once and freeze them. They make it so quick and easy to make a smoothie in the morning.
Sometimes when I go to the grocery store I find myself buying things I don’t really need because they look yummy. Ordering groceries can be a big help in stopping impulse buying.
Another great option is to order your fruits and vegetables from places such as Imperfect Foods. We have been using Imperfect Foods for months and it helps to have their great produce on hand for healthier meals.
I have a big sweet tooth and love to have something in the house to satisfy my cravings. Over the years though I have learned if I have too many sweet things I will eat too much sugar, so now I try to limit what I keep on hand. If I am really craving something I can run out to the store to get it instead of mindlessly snacking.
I’m not sure about you but I feel much better when I workout on a regular basis. When sticking to a regular workout routine I find that I want healthier foods and crave less sweets.
