Don’t you think we sometimes make eating healthy too hard? I do. Counting calories, counting carbs, counting fat….don’t eat these foods, eat less of this, more of that, read your labels, weigh, measure….there’s definitely a place for all of those things, but sometimes, I think we need to relax and approach healthy eating in a more simple way.
I awoke to a 5:10 am alarm clock this morning…made it to the gym to teach a 6 am Sculpt class…now I have to stay mentally prepared for 2 more classes this afternoon. After class, breakfast was a simple bowl of banana oats, topped with dark chocolate, berries, and almond butter. Simple and perfect.
Some of the simple tips I try to follow when it comes to healthy eating:
1. Eat more fruits and vegetables – especially darkly and brightly colored ones.
2. Drink more water.
3. Eat breakfast.
4. Eat healthy monounsaturated and Omega-3 fats.
5. Eat slowly and mindfully, paying attention to hunger and fullness cues.
What are some healthy eating tips that you try to live by?
Have a great Tuesday!
