But, eating right is a habit that is particularly hard in today’s world. With so much variations of food going around, it is hard to resist the temptation to avoid it. Maintaining a balanced diet shouldn’t be as hard as many people think it is. All you need to do is start by making small changes into the day-today eating habits. Here are a few tips to get you started on your journey to a healthy lifestyle.
Make half your plate fruits and vegetables
Choose red, orange, and dark-green vegetables along with other vegetables for your meals. Add fruit to meals as part of main or side dishes or as dessert. The more colorful you make your plate; the more likely you are to get the vitamins, minerals, and fiber your body needs to be healthy. Vegetables and fruits are most likely to contain abundant vitamins and minerals to keep our body running smoothly. These fruits and veggies also help maintain the balance in your blood sugar levels, cholesterol and blood pressure.
Try to use fresh ingredients whenever possible as vegetables and fruits lose their effectiveness over time. Just make sure that you get your produce from a trusty and reliable vendor. If you can, grow them at your own home to ensure its quality.
