6 simple ways to smarter, healthier eating

 

To eat well, you need to combine nutritional science, a bit of effort, and pure enjoyment. Most of us know that fresh salad, berries, and slowing down when eating are better for us than wolfing down energy bars and sweets. But how to make that leap from our current habits to healthier ones?

 

Here are six ways you can eat healthy, delicious meals, and really enjoy what you're eating.

 

1. Ditch whole milk
Try healthier alternatives such as rice milk or almond milk.

 

2. Harness the power of nuts (and seeds)
Almonds, cashews, filberts, hazelnuts, peanuts, pecans, and pistachios pack plenty of beneficial nutrients, including vitamin E, folic acid, potassium, and fiber. Although many nuts are high in fat, the fat is mainly unsaturated — a healthy choice.

 

3. Taste food before you salt it
Break the autopilot habit of reaching for the salt shaker. Make a ritual out of truly tasting your food before you decide if it needs tweaking.

 

4. Pack lunch once a week
This makes healthy food choices readily available to you at work or on an outing. And since you are controlling portion sizes, you can make sure that you're not supersizing your meal. Plus, it saves you money.

 

5. Eat five (or more) vegetables and fruits a day
It's a nutrient-packed way to fill your plate, and is generally low in calories.

 

6. Plan meals that are delightful, delicious, and healthy
It’s near impossible to maintain a diet that leaves you feeling like you’re missing out on something. A couple of times each week, take time to prepare a nice, healthy meal…it is possible to have healthy meals that are also delicious!
