A balanced diet and good nutrition are just a few of the keys to overall good health and wellness.
Eating healthy is not a diet.
Choosing to eat healthier all boils down to listening to your body’s needs by fueling it with food that makes you feel energized and well. Studies show diets rich in nuts, fish, fruits, and veggies are best.
Sound expensive? It’s actually not. Eating healthy on a budget isn’t impossible. In fact, Harvard School of Public Health research found a healthy vs. unhealthy diet costs just $1.50 more per day. The cost of diet-related chronic diseases — such as diabetes — is much higher.
If eating healthy seems overwhelming, it doesn’t have to be. While there’s a lot of information (and misinformation) out there, sometimes keeping it simple is best. Start small, and then figure out what works best for your lifestyle.
A balanced diet and good nutrition are just a few of the keys to overall good health and wellness. Diets filled with fruits, vegetables, and whole grains reduce the risk of heart disease, obesity, and other chronic health issues.
You don't have to implement these tips all at once, either. Ease into healthy eating and be patient with yourself, as it’s a process to break less healthy eating habits.
