How to Make Healthy Food Changes

Posted by

Gee, I know how hard it is to eat healthy
all the time!!
But what if I told you there were simple food
changes you could make easily right now?
And even though it’s not quite magic, I do have some tricks up my sleeve.
Here are 5 of them:

Use good fats like healthy canola or olive oil.
Your family won’t notice a difference in
taste, and healthy fats are better for you.
Another way to cut down on fat?
Grill rather than fry meat and chicken for
burritos and other meals.
Top with lots of colorful veggies.

Replace foods made with white flour for those
with whole grain like
whole wheat bread, whole wheat tortillas and brown rice
which have more good fiber.

Hocus Pocus…
Haltus Saltus!
Uh… Salt.
If you’re buying packaged foods, look for
options low in salt, also called sodium
140 mg of sodium or less per serving.
Another little trick to cut down on salt is
to use less and flavor your food with tasty
herbs like cilantro, oregano, chile, pepper,
cumin or lemon juice.
My mouth is watering!

What about snacks?
No salt or sugar in my goodies?
Replace packaged snacks with homemade that
taste just as good.
If you want something crunchy, make popcorn
at home using a tablespoon of olive oil.
This is healthier than store-bought chips.
Or cut up fruit and vegetables for healthy
snacks at home or on the go.

Rethink what your family drinks.
Don’t be fooled
Did you know that sodas, sports drinks, even
fresh juice can have as much sugar
as a candy bar?
That’s why…
you should serve only water,
maybe with a splash of lime or
plain milk.
Making these small changes
will lead to big rewards
for you and your family.
And when it comes to your health,
this is priceless!
