As you can imagine, in this category we can include all fresh foods, such as fruits and vegetables. But for your healthy eating plan to be a success and you don’t give up quickly, your intake has to include proteins, carbohydrates, fats, vitamins and minerals, that is, all the necessary nutrients to make you feel good and with a lot of energy. For this, we remind you of some tips that you can take into account and, thus, generate a habit that is difficult to abandon:
Say Yes To Water:
It is advisable to consume between 2 and 3 litres of water per day. Sometimes we forget to do it, or it seems very difficult to meet this goal, but there is a trick for everything: choose a bottle in a transportable size, fill it with water, and take it with you wherever you go. The important thing is not to wait until you are thirsty to drink water because we are somewhat dehydrated when we feel very thirsty. Get the batteries!
Include at least two servings of fruits in your daily diet. You can include it in your breakfast and snack. If you are one of those who wake up with little desire to eat, you can divide your breakfast into two parts and leave the fruit for the middle of the morning. Fruits provide vitamins, fibres, antioxidants, minerals, and a large amount of water. If you suffer from fluid retention, you can opt for some diuretics such as pineapple, melon, orange and watermelon.
Add vegetables to your meals. Ensure each lunch or dinner includes vegetables (estimate between a quarter and a half of the plate for this food group). They are all important, but pay special attention to leafy greens, such as lettuce, spinach, chard, and arugula, to help the digestive system. Others can be eaten raw, baked, steamed, grilled or as a puree.
Choose Whole Grains:
Because of their high fibre content, these foods will help you feel full and, in this way, not overeat. In addition, they are the ideal ally to regulate intestinal transit. Oatmeal, bran, rye, quinoa are just a few options you can include at breakfast and any dinner.
Incorporate Seeds And Nuts As Part Of Your Meals:
It can be in salads, soups, in your yoghurt or with your fruits. The options are limitless. If you choose to consume them as one of your snacks, remember that the correct amount is just a handful.
We often forget them, but they provide us with an incredible amount of iron, protein and fibre, making our dishes super complete. You can includ
