tips and tricks, health, health and wellness, healthy eating

The desire to diet is one that most people have at some point in life. If you are not good at sticking with a diet routine then you might give up on your attempts much faster than you’d like to. Instead of feeling like diet is not for you, it can be much more helpful to reexamine how you’re approaching the idea of getting your health in a better state. Though there are plenty of diets that are proven to work most diets are not able to work for every person.

Feeling defeated before you even begin is a surefire way to fail. Instead of allowing this sensation to consume you it can be helpful to consider alternatives. When you want to eat mayo, go for a healthier option like “Just Mayo” by HamptonCreek. If you need a snack then see how berries might fill you more and nourish your spirit deeper than a bag of chips would. If you are ready to start making lasting changes in the way that you approach your health it is time to consider the most useful methods that will work for your needs.

Find a Better Choice

You probably are already aware of the many foods that you eat on a daily basis that are not going anything for the health or integrity of your body. Though you have heard all of the data on processed foods and red meat you might still not have all of the information. There are some items that you eat on a regular basis that you probably did not realize were causing harm to your body. Condiments like mayo, for example, are packed with some pretty bad stuff that can cause your cholesterol levels to go way up.

A diet that is rich in cholesterol is going to cause you some serious health complications later. When you absolutely love the taste of mayonnaise you might find it difficult to part with it. A turkey sandwich just doesn’t seem complete without a little bit of mayo to keep it from being too dry. Don’t give up what you love for the sake of your diet simply find a healthier alternative. “Just Mayo” by HamptonCreek uses plant protein instead of eggs. This makes it a much healthier option for your meals that still has the same amazing taste you love.

Break the Chain

There are many patterns that you might find yourself in life that can be tough to break. Most, if not all, of these patterns are going to be related to food. When you are used to eating specific things you do not even realize that you’re limiting yourself. Snacking, for example, is an easy way to eat empty calories and add negative substances to your system. This is especially true if you are only snacking on processed foods that are high in salt. Switching what you snack on is a simple way to notice a change in your health.

Ditch the chips and go for something that has more to offer. Fruits and berries are excellent because they are sweet and delicious, a great combo for snacking, while also having plenty of useful benefits. The vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants that you can find in a piece of fruit will far outweigh any of the cheap thrills that you experience while shoveling handfuls of chips into your mouth. This is a change that can be very easy for you to make and one that is not difficult to commit to once you’ve gotten into the habit of grabbing fruit first.

Begin Now

Planning on improving your health in the future is never a good idea. If you want to make a difference in the way that you eat and the results that you see with your health then you absolutely must begin today. The longer that you wait to change your habits the more difficult that it will be to accomplish this goal. Simple changes are going to be a great place to start but eventually you are going to want to start tackling more complicated improvements to the way you eat and exercise.

If you are able to handle all of the manageable tasks that you set for yourself in regards to your diet then you are on the right path. Begin with easy switches like swapping your unhealthy condiments for more exciting alternatives like “Just Mayo” by HamptonCreek. Consider the power of fruit, start as soon as possible, and get ready for an improved state of living.

Mum’s Two Cents

It can be really tricky to intentionally choose healthier options, and ultimately lead a healthy lifestyle, but simple choices we make today can make a world of difference. As they say, there is no better time than now, and it is absolutely true. Choosing something healthy to snack on today can lead to more healthy food choices and eventually, a healthier eating habit in the future. The key is to consciously keep choosing healthy alternatives and to give yourself time to grow into the habit.

    1. Good luck on your journey and congratulations on your new bundle of joy! My road to fitness has been pending for the last several years, but I try to be healthier with my choices, one item at a time.

  1. Good thing that I don’t eat anything with Mayo. So it can increase cholesterol level pala. It is really hard to stick to diet plan but as you age, you realize that health is important.

    1. Mayo kasi has eggs kaya definitely it has high cholesterol. Some opt for vinaigrette as dressing instead. It sure is hard, I struggle with this on a regular basis, but it really is a must to eat healthier as we age.

  2. I honestly feel disappointed that here in the Philippines, the healthier the foods are, the more expensive it is. So most of us settle to foods that are within our budget. Especially if we’re budgeting for a big family. Pero kung affordable ang mga pinaka-healthy na pagkain, malamang araw araw yun ang nakahain sa hapagkainan ng bawat pamilya, noh? :)

    1. It’s a sad truth. Organic items sell at higher prices that sometimes more people opt for what they can afford even when these food items are of less nutritional value. I just hope the government will make it mandatory for every household to have an organic garden, that way we can be sure of having healthier and more affordable fruits and veggies to serve on our dinner tables. :)

  3. It’s difficult to stay healthy, specially when you’re used to eating junk foods like me! lol. Now that I’m on my journey to a flatter belly, I’ve become more conscious of what I eat. Not perfect yet, but little by little, hopefully, I can completely avoid the junk foods. hehe.

    1. Yes, staying healthy is no easy feat. It takes constant practice and conscious efforts to refrain from unhealthy snacking and junk foods! I am sure time will come when you can completely remove junk food from your system. What I do is refrain from stocking these items on my tiny pantry and filling my ref with fresh fruits and veggies, instead! ;)

  4. I like it when you said NOW. I, too, would love to start a rather healthy lifestyle but then it has always been a plan and never put into reality. I hope this time my eagerness will be put to action. This is a nice read, thank you for the share.

    1. I feel you. I am always planning to jump-start a healthy living routine but I almost always take a detour at some point. I guess the key is for us to never stop trying, eventually we’ll find a routine that will work for us.

  5. Eating healthy is also a struggle to me especially that I am pregnant. It really takes discipline and control over the restricted food. Now that I am on my third trimester, I am hoping to eat more vegetables and fruits for the little one inside me.

    1. I guess it makes it doubly hard to eat healthy when you are pregnant, especially when you have cravings and all. I remember eating burgers almost everyday while I was pregnant, and now that I think of it, it must’ve been the reason why my little one now has a big appetite for meat! Yup, more veggies and fruits for you and the little peanut to enjoy! Hope you have a safe third trimester and a safer delivery. :)

  6. Now that I’m breastfeeding I really have to be more conscious about making healthier food choices. I find that my problem is really discipline. Haha! Snacking is one of the things I can’t help but do.

    1. Aren’t we all guilty of unhealthy snacking! Haha! Sometimes what I do is intentionally leave out the chips section at the supermarket so I won’t be able to load up my cart with junk foods! :D

  7. As much as possible I eat fruits and vegetables, not just to be healthy but because I love them a lot. The only problem is, I also eat too much junk food and I’m so lazy to work out lols.

  8. Going through the fitness path could really be a hard task. Working out can be really tiring and hard to fit in the schedule. I honestly get the chance to eat healthy whenever I’m in the province. It’s hard to look for fresh food here in the metro.
