Every year, we all promise or aspire to eat healthier because let’s face it, none of us are getting any younger. The days of bingeing on fast food and experiencing little to no repercussions are sadly gone. But the thought of having to eat raw vegetables and fruits each day is nauseating, right?
Luckily, we have come up with five ways we can all eat healthier meals, without even noticing it! So if you want to start your journey into a healthier you, keep scrolling down for our tips and tricks on how to consume nutritious meals!
Substitute cow's milk with almond milk
If you’re suffering from adult acne, chances are somewhere along the way someone has told you it might be because of dairy. If you want to get clearer skin without having to sacrifice your daily dose of calcium, drink almond milk instead. It has more calcium than cow’s milk, it’s healthier, and it doesn’t contain additional hormones!
Eat 6 meals a day
If you eat three heavy meals each day but find yourself hungry by the next hour or two, try cutting down your 3 full meals, into 6 smaller ones! “Snacking” in between meals will help manage your hunger pangs and will feel like you’re eating more, when really, you’re eating the same amount of food!
Get protein from healthier alternatives
Start minimising your intake of red meat and get your protein from healthier alternatives! Food such as grilled fish, greek yogurt, and chicken breasts are great sources of protein without the unwanted fat or cholesterol you might get from red meat!
Use smaller plates
Remember about eating small 6 meals a day? Well, according to science, eating those in smaller plates will help you feel full because it looks like you already have a lot to eat!
Chug water throughout the day
Forget about sugary juices and sodas, and drink at least 8 glasses of water everyday as this will help flush out your body’s toxins and clean it out. Add slices of cucumber, lemons, or basil to give your body extra benefits!
