10 Tips to Eat Light & Move More is a jump start to our healthier lifestyle goals! Are you trying to make healthier food choices this year?
My husband and I are committed to eating healthier and moving more, this year. I am a firm believer in making small changes to get big results. Changing the foods you eat, preparation methods and ingredients in those foods is a simple place to start. Moving more can be made in small increments throughout the day. Just do it!
Eat Light- 5 Easy Changes for a Healthier Lifestyle.
- Cook More Meals at Home – planning meals and shopping with a list will save you time and money. Eating meals at home gives you control of ingredients and portion sizes.
- Use Lighter and Healthier Ingredients – switch to low fat dairy products, use leaner cuts of meat and eat more whole grain foods.
- Bake, Broil or Saute while cooking. The deep fryer is in the trash! We have switched to Life Oil for recipes and cooking.
- Limit Snack Foods – keep fresh fruit and vegetables on hand for snacks. Drink more water!
- Cut Down on Salt – do not add salt to cooked foods. Use more herbs and spices for flavoring during meal preperation.
