I frequently get asked “how do you eat healthy?”
I’ll let you in on my secret.
Healthy food is delicious!
Why would I not eat it?
As summer approaches, the focus on healthy eating is escalating.
Here’s my first tip:
Whenever you can, make fresh greens your entree. Top your greens with your meal.
- The crunch of spring mix and/or romaine adds a nice texture and flavor to my meals.
- Volume-ization: You can eat a bigger meal without feeling as heavy.
- You are reducing your calorie intake, but increasing your vitamins.
Healthy eating is not about only eating a little or having a page-long list of restrictions.
I believe it is about moderation and balance.
I eat what I feel like or what my Mom serves for dinner – I just eat a smaller serving of it by eating it on a fresh salad.
You should never be hungry.
Eat a serving (or two) – but add vegetables.
The fiber will fill you up without holding you down.
Brown-rice and vegetable stir-fry topped salad.
So satisfying, so nutritious.
As the weather is getting warmer, it is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of fresh fruit and vegetables.
Have you tasted a perfectly ripe avocado? It melts in your mouth.
From lasagna to meatballs on salad, this tip can help lighten meals without restricting you.
I have used broccoli slaw, cabbage, spring greens, romaine, bok choy, etc.
