Eating healthy is something we all struggle with at times.  I mean, who would actually prefer an apple over a piece of cake?  Although it can be hard, there are certain hacks and tips you can follow that can make eating healthier easier!  There are also other pointers that will help you get right to the point when it comes to dieting.

  • Skip the fad diets.  Trendy, or “fad,” diets are often just that… a trend.  Chelsea Crockett - Healthy FoodsBesides the occasional one that’s actually beneficial, most aren’t even healthy for your body.  You might drop a few quick pounds but that’s usually all you’ll get out of them!
  • Eat more often.  WHATTT?  If you don’t eat enough to fill you up, you’ll probably end up overeating by the time dinner rolls around.  Eat enough to keep you full, just be smart about what you give your body in order to do so!
  • Don’t freak out about the numbers.  If you’re cutting out all foods that are high in sodium, fats, calories, etc., you’re probably overthinking it.  Yes, these things matter but make sure you research what each number means instead of automatically putting it back on the shelf.
  • Get excited about preparing healthy meals and snacks.  Find different Pinterest recipes that include some of your favorite healthy foods.  You’ll be more tempted to eat healthy when you find some recipes that make your mouth water!
  • Be aware of sneaky sugars.  Sugars are known for making their way into things that you wouldn’t expect them to be in.  Be aware of what you’re actually eating!

Try out some of these hacks to make eating healthy a piece of cake! 🙂
