It’s so easy to fall into bad eating habits. After all, convenience foods are everywhere and fit so easily into our hectic schedules. The funny thing is we all have an idea about how and when we should eat but only seem to eat right for a short amount of time or not at all. Sometimes our eating habits are dependent on our moods or energy levels. But the key thing to remember is that having a healthy diet is all about balance and what proportion of Macro Nutrients ( Proteins, Carbohydrates and Dietary Fats) you should be consuming on a daily basis.
Whatever your goal its important to establish a SMART plan, what does this mean?
Your goals should be:
Why is it that healthy foods always seem like boring foods? Be adventurous, try something new and you may be pleasantly surprised.
How about this smoked salmon and mixed lettuce with asparagus?
Or this quiche dish?
Does this mean you can’t have a ‘naughty’ snack once in while? Not at all. The key thing to do, is to make sure you reduce portion sizes and eat these snacks in moderation i.e. eating healthy snacks like this delicious homemade flapjack with carrot and orange zest.
Eating a balanced diet is key to achieving a healthy body weight and maintaining good health. Planning mealtimes and cooking from scratch will help you to do this and avoid unhealthy snacking.
