I think that I am a lucky person in this day and age where there is plenty of food to go around, and there are so many life conveniences that our ancestors didn’t have in the past. However, with this abundance come many temptations and also hazards for our health, since overeating and indulging in unhealthy foods can easily become part of our daily routine. I use the Internet for always searching for new healthy recipes, so I can keep myself in shape and enjoy my life.
Here are some of the things I eat in a day that help me with my goals of being healthy and in shape. First of all, I prefer having more, smaller meals throughout the day, instead of just eating a few, large meals. This helps with never going hungry and also it lends a helping hand to the metabolism, too. If you are passionate about healthy eating like I am, you know about this rule, but I thought about including it anyway.
Another thing I do to stay in sync with my desire to have healthy meals is that I combine carbs with protein for each meal. In the morning, I go for cereal (made from whole grains) and some milk, since this is easy to digest and the protein in the milk helps to release the energy from the cereals be released slowly so that I can enjoy more energy throughout the day. For lunch, I prefer a combination of fish or lean meat with boiled vegetables. I like that there is so much variety to choose from, and from time to time, I go for more exotic veggies and fruits, simply because they can be found in local stores and they provide a great source of fiber and antioxidants.
In the evenings, I go for lighter dinners because it is never a good idea to go to sleep on a full stomach. Besides the fact that you may get some terrible nightmares, you will also upset your digestive system, and that is something that can affect your entire health in the long run.
I make a personal goal from eating a bit of dairy every day, and my favorite is Greek yogurt. This tasty dairy is rich in protein but poorer in calories and fat, and it can be combined with fruits, for an even better taste. I also use yogurt while cooking, because I find that yogurt dressings are much healthier than other combinations.
All in all, I think I am doing an excellent job picking the right foods to eat, and I am always searching for new ideas that will help me stay healthy and lead a long happy life.
