How to enjoy healthy eating
One of the most common obstacles people run into on their journey to optimal health is changing their eating habits. If you’re working on changing yours for the first time in a long time, it can seem intimidating! But no matter how many years of habits you’re working to change, you can learn to enjoy healthy eating. Read on to find out how!
Keep a positive mindset.
Having a positive mindset can make all the difference in your ability to maintain a healthy diet long-term. If you constantly think of food in terms of “I can’t have that,” you’re not going to feel great about your healthy lifestyle!
Instead, think of healthy eating in terms of what you’re adding to your diet. Think of how good it feels to fuel your body with high-quality nutrients. Think of your goals and how eating well will help you reach them. By fostering a positive mindset about healthy eating, it will be much easier to enjoy it.
Did you know that if you’re distracted while you’re eating, you’re less likely to enjoy your meal? That can make a big impact on whether or not you like healthy eating!
At Yoli, we recommend eating mindfully. That means paying attention to what you’re eating, whether you’re enjoying a full meal or snacking while you work. Avoid distractions such as your phone or the TV during mealtime, and focus on the way your food actually tastes. Doing so will allow you to more fully appreciate what you’re eating.
Try new things.
One of the best ways to enjoy healthy eating is to try new things. Some people thrive eating the same things day in and day out, but most of us like more variety in our diets. The brochure that comes with your Transformation Kit offers many options for protein, carbohydrates, fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats, so try a few new things from time to time. You never know what may become your new favorite.
Trying new things can also apply to cooking methods. If you usually steam your vegetables, try roasting them. If you only ever use salt and pepper on your chicken, spice things up with some paprika, garlic powder, or cayenne. By trying new ways of preparing healthy food, you can keep it interesting long-term!
