Everyone knows that eating healthy is important, but we all have some struggles on sticking to our ‘diet’. A couple of wines here, a dinner party next week and these amazing chocolates you discovered: it’s easier to eat the things that are not specifically good for us. I recognize my bad eating habits on the moments I am very busy and only at home to sleep. With the tips in this article, I always get my healthy routine back.
- Bake a banana bread, chocolate cake or another kind of healthy goodness every once in a while. Cut them into slices and put them into the freezer, so you can take a piece to school or work every morning. I am a big fan of sweet snacks, but the fruit I take to work is always the same. In this way, I can vary with my healthy snacks.
- Add vegetables to one extra meal every day. There are not a lot of people that eat enough vegetables for dinner and by eating more greens the rest of the day, it will be much easier. Create a green smoothie with spinach or kale, take some cherry tomatoes or sliced cucumbers with you or lunch with a salad or a home-made soup. It’s that easy!
- Try to eat multiple times a day, and, right before you leave school or work. Because, is it just me or is it too tempting to buy something at the train- or gas station? Especially when you’re hungry, you tend to buy something that meets your bad cravings. For these moments, I always have something to eat with me.
- Replace your unhealthy meals for healthy ones. Do you have a sweet tooth? Bake wholeweat or buckwheat pancakes and top them off with fruits, snack with dried fruits or use a little honey instead of sugar. When you like it savoury, eat, for example, vegetables with hummus dip or a cracker with mashed avocado and chicken breast.
