Healthy and Delicious - How to Have the Best of Both Worlds

By Edited Sep 22, 2016 0 0

Whether you're looking to shed a few pounds or just get healthier for the impending New Year, these simple steps will help you eat nutritiously without losing great taste!

  • Avoid the heavy mayo and fat-laden dressings. Instead, opt for olive oil, vinegar, or lemon juice which cut calories without sacrificing taste.

  • With serving sizes so out of control, half the battle of eating healthy is eating the right portions. As a general rule of thumb, the serving size of any given food you eat should be no bigger than your palm.

  • Variety is the spice of life and can help you eat better, so experiment with a wide array of recipes and ingredients.

  • Try grilling meat and poultry instead of frying or baking - it allows any excess fat to drip off, thus reducing your fat intake.

  • Don't skip breakfast! It may seem counterintuitive, but skipping the most important meal of the day can actually promote overeating, since it dramatically increases your appetite throughout the day.

  • Cut up fruits and vegetables and keep them in Tupperware in the fridge. They provide a delicious yet highly nutritious snack.

  • Introduce more fish into your diet. Not only are the omega-3 fatty acids really good for your heart, fish is high in protein and lacks the high saturated fat found in other animal meats.

  • Try taking customized supplements (such as those offered by Code Nutrition) to help supplement your diet with the nutrients and vitamins you are not getting in your daily diet.

  • Another simple way to curb overeating and help you watch your calories is to drink a full glass of water before every meal. It will fill your stomach and slightly decrease your appetite.

  • Make meals that are healthy and easy to freeze. Make a big batch and freeze it - that way, next time you don't have time or are too tired to cook, you can grab that instead of ordering pizza or going out for a calorie-loaded meal.
