Healthy Eating Made Easy

Life is full of family, work, exercising, errands, outings, holidays, appointments and more. While you may be wholly committed to a healthier way of living, remaining focused on healthy eating and carving out time to devote to health eating strategies can prove to be a hindrance. To equip you with the tools you need to stay on track, here are Live Lethal’s top 7 tips that will make eating healthy easy:

1. Plan your meals – all of your meals – before you go grocery shopping. Planning the meals you will eat and writing down the ingredients on a shopping list ensures you will make healthier food choices when you walk through the store.

2. Be wise about your budget, but also be smart about choosing locally-grown, in season, organically grown and sustainable foods. The rumor out there is that eating healthy is too expensive.  While that may be true in some instances,  I have found that more and more stores and online grocers are offering a variety of organic options for a reasonable price.  Buying organic foods that are in season is a way to save some cash.  Farmers markets are another great option to get locally-grown food for a great price.  If buying all organic just isn’t an option, I would suggest buying any items that are on the dirty dozen list organic, and be mindful of other non-organic produce that looks super shiny or feels sticky or waxy, which are sure signs of pesticides and preservatives.

3. Shop the perimeter or outlying areas of the grocery section. You may not have realized but the inner-aisles of the store are home to the processed foods. The outer aisles hold the meats, fruits and vegetables you to practice clean eating, which is eating foods that require minimal preparation before reaching the table.

4. Spend part of a day cooking meals and prepping snacks. It is immensely easier to spend a few hours cooking one day a week and separating it into meal-sized portions than trying to fit in prep time, cooking and eating throughout the day.

5. Purchase more than one of your favorite, large-sized water bottles. If you don’t have a water bottle to take with you where ever you go, you are more likely to fall short of your water benchmark of drinking half your body weight in ounces of water per day.

6. Buy smaller plates. If your dinnerware consists of the oversized holiday/banquet style plates, it’s time to either invest in smaller plates or pay close attention to the size of your portions.

7. Unless you are eating at a restaurant that serves tiny portions, put half of your dinner in a to-go box. Restaurants have the nasty habit of either overfilling your plate and/or loading up the unhealthy ingredients. Get in the habit of sharing a meal with the person you are eating with, or ask your server to put half of your meal in a to-go box to take home and eat at a later date.
