Healthy Eating Tips from Liv Northgate
In this post, the Liv Northgate Blog is featuring our favorite healthy living tips. The fall holidays, and soon the winter ones, are coming up, and now is a good time to focus on healthy eating to establish or re-establish good habits before all the goodies appear and threaten to consume you. We hope these tips help you eat a little healthier during the upcoming holiday season.
Tip 1: Add more fruits and veggies to your diet.
An easy way to make your meals healthier is to eat the proper servings of fruits and vegetables. Have a banana or blueberries with your breakfast, a salad for lunch, and a side of broccoli with your dinner. Apple slices and grapes are great snacks any day of the week. Incorporate fruits and vegetables into the dishes you make every day.
Tip 2: Cut back on the sweets.
It can be difficult to cut sweets totally out of your diet, but it’s always possible to cut back on your sugar intake. Keep your desserts to a minimum. Have dessert with just one meal a day, and have a fresh serving of fruit with your other meals.
Tip 3: Get out of the house.
Visit the local gym, take a walk around a park here in Gilbert, take the stairs, or start a soccer or baseball league with your friends. Get out of the apartment sometime this month to get some exercise and fresh air now that it’s starting to cool down a bit.
Tip 4: Avoid juice.
It’s better to get your fruit servings from fresh fruit. Avoid drinking fruit juice — it’s often loaded with sugar anyway — or even choose to squeeze your own instead! Drink plenty of water and milk. Drinking water can help you quell your appetite, and milk is an essential source of calcium.
