If your diet is full of fast fixes and processed food, there are a handful of strategies that could boost your wellbeing in a big way. Update your diet for a happy, healthy new year with whole food, hydration, and healthy portions.
Fruits, Vegetables, and Healthy Fats
When making a change in your diet, try to make it part of your daily routine right away. Make a commitment to fill half of your plate with fruits and vegetables. Produce is loaded with minerals, vitamins, and fiber. Opt for two cups of fruit and at least two cups of vegetables each day. It may sound like a lot at first, but once you are in the habit of adding fruit to morning smoothies and salads to every lunch, it will feel natural in no time.
Fats are needed for cell growth and to maintain healthy energy levels. Simply choose healthy fats, including avocados, seeds, nuts, and salmon.
Hydrate with Water
Water supports many bodily functions, including circulation, digestion, and regulating your body temperature. So, instead of coffee or sugary drinks, choose water. If you want more flavor, add sliced citrus to your glass or water bottle.
Also, remember to take your systemic enzyme supplement with water between meals. Wait two hours after a meal, take Vitalzym, then wait another 60 minutes before eating again. Water moves through the body, promoting functions along the way. This time period allows the enzymes to move with the water to your intestines, where they can be distributed throughout your body for optimal impact.
If you aren’t drinking enough water now, there are a few life changes that could help you stay hydrated:
- Drink a glass of water in the morning, right after you wake up.
- Add tea to your days. Treat yourself to a hot mug of tea on chilly evenings and enjoy iced tea on hot summer days.
- Every time you work out, bring a full water bottle and finish it before you leave the gym.
Smaller Plates for Smaller Portions
It is easy for people to fool themselves when it comes to portion size. Unless you are using a scale in the kitchen, it is possible to think of something as one portion when it is actually three. For example, a serving of pasta is about the size of a single scoop of ice cream. So a bowl of pasta can easily be multiple portions. Watching the size of your meals is an important step to maintaining a healthy weight and avoiding diabetes and high cholesterol.
A simple start is to choose a smaller plate for each meal. Other little changes that can yield big results include always eating from a plate (not over a sink or out of box), choosing not to snack while watching television, and eating slowly. When you make delicious, healthy food, take time to enjoy it. It’s healthier for you and you can enjoy the flavor and taste of each and every bite.
