Healthy, practical foods, when used on a regular basis, form a great part of healthy living, and may even lower the risk of heart disease, cancer and other common illnesses.
Starting a healthy living program using practical foods is easy. Start by taking a personal inventory of your current diet, including where it is good and where it can use some improvement. Assess the personal health risks created by your current diet (your family physician can be of particular help here). A physician or dietitian can be a big help in putting together a list of healthy, easy to use, practical foods you can use to change your diet for the better.
Try these good tips for some ideas on how to use practical foods morning, noon and night to assist your quest for healthier living.
Include some healthy staples, and some healthy fruits in your breakfast. For instance, pair healthy oatmeal with blueberries, or whole wheat or wheat bran cereal with strawberries or bananas.
Try mixing a healthy cereal like All Bran into your nonfat or low fat yogurt. It will perk up your plain yogurt and give it a great crunch.
Fresh fruit is also a great addition to yogurt. Try buying plain, nonfat yogurt and mixing in your own raspberries, blueberries and strawberries. You will save money and enjoy a healthy breakfast.
Instead of high fat butter, spread your toast with apple butter or soy nut butter instead. Always try to use whole grain varieties of bread like wheat or rye.
Drink a glass of 100% fruit juice with breakfast every day. Orange juice, grape juice, apple juice and grapefruit juice are all great choices.
Blend 1% milk or soy milk with fresh pineapple for a healthy, delicious breakfast smoothie. These smoothies are great for people on the go.
Lunch and dinner ideas
Make a great tuna salad with grated carrots, green peppers, red peppers, garlic and onion.
