Last week, we looked at helpful strategies for building and maintaining a lasting workout routine. But exercise is only half the health battle. A 5-mile run doesn’t mean much if you follow it up with a double bacon cheeseburger and chocolate cake every day. Eating right is necessary to a healthy lifestyle, and most of us could stand to improve our eating habits a bit. If you’re ready to add some healthier options to your daily diet, here are some articles to help you get started.
Considering humanity has been eating since, literally, the beginning of humankind, you’d think we would have a better grasp on how food impacts our bodies. Unfortunately, when it comes to our diet, we tend to make things harder by following advice with no scientific basis. If you’ve ever been told to never eat after 8 p.m. or that pasta makes you fat, a few dietitians would like to set the record straight.
Healthy eating should be easy. Just cut out junk food and eat more salads, right? Of course, life is rarely so simple. Healthy eating is a big commitment, and getting into the rhythm will be a process. Luckily, you don’t have to go it alone. Check out these 7 steps to map out your path for better eating.
One reason we have trouble adjusting to healthier diets is because we want to enjoy eating our food. Kale and tofu don’t have the same appeal as fried chicken or an ice cream sundae. But eating a healthy meal doesn’t have to be a challenge. From falafel-crusted chicken with hummus slaw to vegetable noodle soup, Food Network has collected a vast array of healthy dinner options that you can prepare in 40 minutes or less!
Eating healthy would be a lot easier if nutritionists could make up their mind on what’s actually healthy. Can we eat salt or is it public enemy No. 1 again? And where do we stand on this whole paleo thing? If you’ve ever been vexed by our ever-changing perception of food, this painfully true video about from Funny Or Die is sure to leave you in stitches.
