Healthy Eating Can Be Simple
Follow these guidelines for eating a balanced diet for better health and wellness.
1. Listen to your body
Eat when you're hungry and stop when you're satisfied. Becoming more mindful of our bodies' responses to the food we feed ourselves can help prevent over- and under-eating and help in maintaining a healthy weight.
2. Drink more water
When we feel thirsty, we are actually already dehydrated, so drink up throughout the day! Hydration is key for reducing daytime fatigue and replenishing the cells for an active day. Sometimes when we think we're hungry we may actually be thirsty so try a glass of water first!
3. Eat more fruits and vegetables, organic when possible
Fruits and vegetables are packed with nutritional goodness like antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that stave off heart disease, diabetes, and other illness. Vegetables and fruits can be steamed, chopped in salads, and even consumed as beverages like juices and homemade organic smoothies for quick, on-the-go meals and snacks.
