One of the biggest reasons why diets and attempts at healthy eating fail is boredom. Many people don’t know how to stick to a healthy diet which is interesting day after day. It can be quite a challenge.
Given the huge variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, meats and other healthy foods available at your local grocery store, however, it’s definitely possible to create some exciting, nutritious meals that will keep boredom at bay.
However, it’s important to check the nutritional qualities of the fruits and vegetables that you buy, and not simply assume that all fruits and vegetables are healthy in the same way.
As far as what to eat goes, buying anything at the grocery shop from the following list is your straight path to better health. These healthy foods include but are not limited to:
• Fruits such as bananas, berries and apples
• Whole grain food including bread and pasta
• Low-fat dairy products including milk and yogurt
• Protein such as chicken, turkey and fish
• Vegetables such as spinach, squash and tomatoes
• Natural peanut butter
• Pulse, Beans and legumes
• Almonds and all other nuts
Food You Must Avoid
Refined foods are a big industry, and do draw a gigantic profit. When industries are accustomed to raking in big profits, they do what any industry would do: protect their profits at all costs. Additionally, these profits bring power, and information can be put forth, covered over, or otherwise manipulated to protect that power.
Most people know which kinds of food they should stay away from. The obvious ones include desserts, high-fat products, sweets, fast food and fried food. As a matter of fact, most people will feel a big difference simply by staying away from these kinds of foods altogether. The not-so-obvious foods include:
• Fat-free food
• Most frozen meals
• Processed meat like fake cold cuts
• Soda and juice
• Creamy meals
Your biggest weapon in your battle towards eating right is common sense. So use it!
