{February 27, 2012}   Tips for Eating Right

It’s hard enough picking out food without worrying about calories, but once you factor a diet into the equation, things tend to get even more difficult. Unsurprisingly, the best way to diet healthy is to read the nutrition facts before you buy. After a while, it will become habit and you’ll find yourself opting for healthier foods all the time. But for those of us who need a bit of help figuring out what should go in the cart, there is hope

1. Fruits and vegetables are always a great snack. Apples, for example, are a filling source of fiber, and won’t give you too many calories.

2. Pick up some mushrooms for recipes you would normally cook with meat. They fill you up as if you’re eating meat, but won’t add to your waistline.

3. Buy some cereal for a low-calorie nutritious snack to curb your appetite throughout the day. 

4. Invest in a low-calorie salad dressing. Don’t buy dressing just because it boasts “low fat” on the label; keep a closer eye on the calorie count.

5. Pick up some eggs while you’re out. Studies show that eating eggs for breakfast makes you feel full longer, and has a nice amount of protein and fiber as well. There has been quite a bit of debate over the egg yolk. Some say it should be avoided because of its cholesterol content, and others say that the yolk contains valuable nutrients needed for a healthy diet. I did a bit of research of my own, and found that most people recommend eating yolks, just in moderation.

With the right foods, eating healthy can be easier than you expect.
