Preparing healthy meals is fun!

You’ve done all your shopping and preparation, now comes the fun part, cooking. Preparing healthy meals is fun! You get to use fresh ingredients with bright colors to make dishes with tasty flavors. What’s the best part? Not only is cooking healthy meals enjoyable, it’s also quite good for you!

Eat Those Vegetables

One of the easiest ways to eat healthy is to make sure veggies are part of every meal. That means dessert too! Find some veggie dessert recipes online! They might surprise you. If you really want to have some fun with it, watch some of the veggie battles from Iron Chef to really give yourself some inspiration!

Ditch the Calorie Counting

Studying nutrition labels every time you want to have a meal is annoying and tedious. Just prepare meals with a variety of nutrients and colors with plenty of fresh ingredients. It’s a lot easier to stay healthy when you put some variety in your diet!

Jump Start Your Day with a Healthy Breakfast

Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. If you start your day with a healthy meal, you’re more likely to keep making healthy choices throughout your day. There’s no one “right” recipe for the perfect breakfast. You need to do whatever works best for your body.

Portion Control

If you’re dining out, you will notice that restaurants will just pile the food on. This makes it incredibly easy to over-eat. At many restaurants, you can ask your server when you order if he or she can bring out half of your meal in a box. This way, you will still get plenty to eat and you’ll have another meal for the next day.

Fruit for Dessert

This does not mean you have to completely do away with your favorite dessert. If there’s something you know you can’t possibly live without, go ahead. Just have less of it. Instead of filling up on dessert sweets that are totally packed with sugar, grab some fruit to satisfy that sweet tooth. Your body will thank you!
