There are quite a few ways to start eating healthy, but it can be hard to know exactly what to eat or what foods to buy to keep your goals. Luckily, there are some charts to help you make better food choices, combat cravings and teach you how to pack up a healthy lunch:
1. Grocery List
Let's start with the grocery list. Here's a giant list of healthy foods to buy that can replace all the unhealthy stuff you normally eat. Then, choose recipes that use these ingredients.
To help your digestive system and eliminate bloat, eat these types of foods. Try swapping out your normal snack for something on this list, like a handful of apricots, an apple with pumpkin seeds or snacking on a yogurt.
7. Helpful baking substitutes
Rather than using white sugar and white flour in your recipes, here are some options to make your recipes healthier, but just as delicious.
8. Fulfill your vitamin needs
You can take supplements, or you can adjust your diet to make sure your body gets the vitamins it needs.
A lot of people tend to skip breakfast, but you really shouldn't. Eating breakfast within an hour of waking up can stabilize your blood sugar levels and set the tone for today's eating style. Start your day off right with a breakfast off this list.
10. How to pack your lunch
Meal prepping is especially helpful for eating healthy. If you've got spare time early in the week, make enough extra food in easy-to-store containers. Now, a balanced meal is all ready to go, just waiting in the fridge for you to eat and enjoy. Use this chart to get your started.
