Eat Your Veggies First
Whenever possible, always eat your veggies first whenever you eat any meal. This will help you get your daily veggie quota in, and get you fuller sooner. By dominating your plate with veggies over high fat and carb foods, you can make sure that you’re eating clean. So the next time you make a meal, be sure to serve veggies first.
Make Breakfast and Lunch the Night Before
Meal prep and meal planning are absolutely vital to eating healthy. And more than just saving your health, implementing this tip can save you time and money as well.
So try making overnight oats! They taste great and are super easy to make. Also, if you have a slow cooker at home, you can make batch meals and freeze them (and reheat when needed). If you have leftovers from dinner, bring them to work or school with you. Also, consider checking on Pinterest, you can find plenty of easy recipes that are all tasty and healthy.
Carry a Water Bottle
Make it a habit to always bring a water bottle whenever you go. If you’re thirsty while on the go, you’ll have something on-hand right away, so you won’t be tempted to drink something sweet. Try adding fruit to your water for a healthy beverage that quenches your thirst and hydrates your body. Also, If you feel hungry, just drink water to naturally suppress your appetite.
Eat on Time
Another way to easily make sure that you’re eating clean is by eating on time. By keeping a regular timetable for your meals, you can avoid cravings for unhealthy food. No matter how busy you are, it’s always a great idea to make sure you’re staying on schedule for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Keep Healthy Snacks Handy
If you can bring a bag of chips, chances are you can also bring a bag of nuts or fresh fruits. The reason why many opt to munch on salty and sweet treats is that they’re handy and convenient. So why not reinvent your packing ideas so you can bring healthy snacks with you anytime?
Wash fruit in your sink as soon as you get home after doing your grocery shopping and put them into small clear bowls. Also, if you have nuts like almonds, measure out the right portions, and pack them in small baggies. Do the same for other healthy treats and grab one before you leave for work or school.
Turn Your Fridge into a Salad Bar
To make a salad bar, all you have to do is wash and chop your veggies ahead of time and store them in air tight containers. Also, make sure to clean and dry your leafy greens and fresh herbs then wrap them in a paper towel to absorb excess moisture.
Then pull them out when you want, and add some ready made dressing and enjoy.
Instead of having sugary desserts, try cutting up your favorite fruits, put them into an ice cube tray, pour yogurt on top, and freeze. In a little while, you’ll have a frosty healthy dessert that tastes great and is awesome for your health. If you want to go beyond this, you can also blend them into an instant smoothie.
Blend Your Veggies
If you’re not crazy about eating your veggies, then try putting them into your smoothies. All you have to do is put in a handful of spinach (or other vegetable of your choice), your choice of fruits and liquid, and blend. You won’t be able to taste it at all, and you’ll have a refreshing drink.
Besides eating your veggies the usual way, making them into healthy noodles will help you to easily eat clean. They are perfect gluten-free alternatives for your regular pasta. By putting them into your Spiralizer, you can easily make your own veggie pasta that can be used for different recipes. They taste great and are seriously nutritious.
Stockpile Healthy Food
Lastly, if you really want to stick to your clean eating habit, then try getting rid of all your unhealthy food and only stockpile your pantry and fridge with healthy ingredients. Because you tend to eat whatever you see, you can get yourself into the mindset of only eating healthy dishes when hungry.
So the next time you visit a grocery store and see healthy items on sale, stock up.
