The number of possible healthy eating tips is so extensive it’s pretty much endless, however I’ve provided some that I feel are very useful and reflect how simple changes can really make a big difference to your eating habits. I hope you find them as useful as I have!
- Never skip breakfast. It will start you off on a downward spiral in which you’re more likely to have cravings. These cravings often require a great deal of willpower to take charge of and if you’re feeling this way on a regular basis eventually you’re likely to give in and go for the first unhealthy snack you come across.
- If you know you’re going way over the suggested portion amount/serving size, invest in some electronic scales and get used to measuring out your portions first.
- Stock-up on complex carbs such as Sweet Potatoes & Brown Rice, they keep you fuller for longer.
- Use plastic freezer bags and tupperware containers to store leftovers which can then be either kept in the fridge, or frozen if you don’t plan on using them in the next few days.
- It might also be worth investing in a slow-cooker. They’re fairly cheap and you can throw in your ingredients in the morning and have everything ready for when you return home from work. Meaning you’ll be much less likely to head for that takeaway menu!
- It’s so easy to roast with almost any vegetables. It doesn’t matter whether they’re fresh or frozen. Pre-heat the oven to 220C (conventional), choose your veg, add some olive oil and whichever spices you fancy and roast until they begin to brown.
- Keep your veggies slightly crispy whilst cooking them. Overcooking will result in them losing all their goodness.
- Healthy casserole recipes are a must in my kitchen. They require minimum fuss and little washing up too!
- It’s ok to buy frozen vegetables! They’ll keep all of their nutrients and are already fully prepped which means you won’t waste time in the kitchen. It also means it’s not a race against time to use them up before they start to go bad.
