There are more people who want to eat healthy than those who actually do. In order to stop being a dreamer and start being a doer, you have to act. Getting into nutrition is actually fairly simple. You need not turn your diet upside down, and this article contains some tips that you can use to get real results fast.
Salad is often seen as a healthy staple. Unfortunately loading it down with oils and dressing defeats the purpose. These cream and oil-based dressings are loaded with saturated fats and have negligible nutritional value. Opt for a healthy vinagrette for your salad, or better yet, make your own using olive oil and a high-quality vinegar. Adding healthy toppings to a salad (like cranberries or walnuts) will also improve their benefits.
Eat plenty of fresh produce every day. It’s recommended by the USDA that you consume between 9 and 13 servings of fruit and vegetables each day. That probably sounds like more than it actually is. For instance, you can drink one glass of orange juice in the mornings, or you could use tomato sauce on your plate of spaghetti.
Eat about 600 to 900mg of garlic daily. Garlic is a natural antibiotic, and will fight a number of diseases such as heart disease and cancer. It will also help you maintain healthy organs by fighting bacteria and fungus. With all of these great abilities, garlic, whether as an extract or in clove form, is an important every day food.
It’s a smart idea to always have some protein bars or similar concentrated food in your computer bag if you travel a great deal. It can be hard to get a nutritional meal at the airport. Either you rush through security, wait on a flight, or sit hungry on a plane without food. Keep a few bars with you just in case you get hungry or need some energy.
There are a lot of people who are unaware of the small changes they could make to have better nutrition. Reading this article means that you will no longer be one of them. Even small changes can have a large impact on your health.
