1.Add more vegetables to your diet
You can simply add avocado, tomatoes or sprouted seeds to your sandwich. Or the next time you're cooking fish, meat, or poultry, try sautéing peppers, onion, garlic, and tomatoes for garnish. Not only will it be packed with flavor, but your serving will be larger and you'll be full without too many extra calories.
2. make the most of your salads
Not all salads are healthy, especially in restaurants. They are loaded with vinaigrette, cheese, raw ham, so loaded with calories and fat. But healthy salads don't have to be bland. Choose those that contain lots of different vegetables for more nutritious, disease-fighting foods. Add lean protein like chicken, turkey, fish, or vegetable protein like dry beans, chickpeas or lentils.
3.Avoid overeating at summer barbecues
Fill your plate with healthy foods first: green salad, raw vegetables, fruit salads. If you treat yourself to a dessert, be aware of its proportion and don't overdo it! Be moderate. When you have finished eating, step away from the table, walk, play table tennis, volleyball or with the children.
4. cook at home
There are many advantages to eating at home. Not only will you save money, but you'll know exactly what you're adding to your meal. Moreover, cook at home is generally healthier. Put on your beautiful cooking apron and start preparing a healthy meal.
5.Don't forget the fruit!
Summer is a great time to consume fresh fruit. Add your favorite berries to your morning muesli or oatmeal like strawberries, goji, raspberries, blueberries, etc. You also have a choice of various fruits like almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts or macadamia nuts. Choose watermelon, melon, plums, or nectarine for dessert, instead of cookies, pancakes, or ice cream.
These few tips are basic and easy to implement, but essential for a healthier diet. You just have to apply these few changes without having to change your habits or do violence to yourself. Take it slow, starting with one small change at a time. And above all, continue to indulge yourself by eating everything but with more vegetables, fruits in your diet, nothing too complicated. Now it's your turn !
