8 Small Changes to Eat More Healthily ...


Eating more healthily is a goal that we would all be wise to have in mind. This doesn´t mean that you have to deprive yourself of all treats, or that you have to make sudden drastic changes to your diet (that is actually not advised). The idea is to eat more healthily, and it´s a lot easier to do that by making small changes to your diet. So here are some ideas on how to eat more healthily …

1. Buy Less Prepared Food

Have you actually looked at the list of ingredients on packets lately?

I was horrified today when I saw how many E-numbers were on some cakes I was considering buying.

They went back on the shelf.

Not everyone has the time to make cakes (or likes them), but we could all benefit from buying less prepared food, and making more from scratch.2

It doesn´t have to take a long time.

2. Switch to Wholemeal Bread

I´ll admit I prefer the taste of white bread, but wholemeal is definitely healthier.2

In fact, I´m going to try making my own bread.

If you have time, you could make wholemeal or granary bread, but if you don´t, buying wholemeal bread will at least give you more fibre and cut down on the refined carbohydrates in your diet.

3. Good Breakfast

Do you start the day off with a bowl of sugary cereal – or worse still, no breakfast at all?

Then you really need to eat more healthily.

Look at the word ´breakfast´ - you break your fast because you haven´t eaten since the previous evening.

This shows how important a good breakfast is.

Eat something healthy that will keep you full until lunchtime.

4. Reduce Sugar

Sugar is bad for your teeth, fattening and aging.

It doesn´t really do anything for you except taste nice.2

So cutting down on your sugar intake is an excellent way of eating more healthily.

Try to get used to unsweetened coffee, use honey when you want to sweeten something, and use less sugar when baking (you can easily reduce sugar in cake recipes by half).
