There are many reasons to start eating healthier – some people do it to lose weight and others do it to accommodate a certain fitness plan.
Whatever made you decide to start watching what you eat, know that you’ve made a good decision. The best part is, it isn’t all that hard to do, changing just one meal a day is a great way to gradually develop good eating habits.
If you need ideas on where to start, try these meals we’ve assembled that are not only good for you but will also satisfy your hunger.
Start your morning off the right way, as it sets the tone for the day and gives you the chance to harness the power of your food all day long.
Stay away from sugary cereal and microwavable sausage breakfasts since they are full of sodium.
We recommend a bowl of oatmeal paired with a poached egg, bell peppers, and onions. This makes for a protein-packed meal with a kick.
Short on time?
Try a smoothie made with Greek yogurt and fruits like blackberries, blueberries, or bananas. You can leave the ingredients in the freezer the night before so that they’re ready to go in the morning.
The middle meal is the trickiest. On one hand, you want to give your body a kick of energy to resume your day. On the other hand, you don’t want to feel bloated afterward.
That’s why you should opt for a meal that combines several healthy ingredients into a small, convenient meal.
We’re talking about wraps of course!
You can customize them to your liking, using either spinach wraps, wheat, or flour tortillas. What you put inside the wraps is also up for discussion, and you can’t go wrong with ingredients like avocado, turkey, spinach, chicken, and beans.
Try experimenting with different ingredients, staying clear of any ingredients full of the wrong kind of fat.
A healthy snack doesn’t have to be boring and tasteless, but you want to pay attention to what’s going on inside the bag.
We recommend a high protein snack like Ips Aged White Cheddar Popcorn, which contains the same amount of protein you’d get from an egg.
Breakfast is technically the most important meal of the day, but what you do (or more importantly, don’t) eat at dinner also has a major effect on your body.
Dinner should be the cleanest meal of the day, and there are few things that fit the bill more than fish.
Herb-crusted salmon with a side of wild rice or broccoli provides all the protein you need, along with valuable oils and healthy fat.
Change up the type of fish every week, trying tilapia, tuna, shrimp and more so that you never get tired of the same thing.
If you’ve stuck to your healthy meal plan all day, then you should treat yourself at night – and a desert is another opportunity to eat delicious food that can also be healthy at the same time!
Amateur bakers can try their hand at peanut butter bars, or fruit-infused cheesecakes, but you can’t go wrong with a simple bowl of Greek yogurt and berries.
Additionally, Ips Churro Cinnamon snacks make a great couch partner if you decide to take your dessert to the couch.
After all, the day is over, and it’s (healthy) indulge o’clock 😃
