How To Have Healthier Eating Habits In 2012

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

 Are you trying to have healthier eating habits for this New Year? If yes, we are here to help you eat healthier this year with nutrition and food must-dos. Read below to get started.

 

Cook And Eat More Homemade Meals

 Not only is cooking from scratch more rewarding, but it is healthier to eat from home than away from home. More than half the meals we consume in the United States of America are eaten outside of the home. Meals that are not homemade are larger in portions and lack healthy ingredients. Homemade foods are more likely to taste delicious and be healthier. If you fear your skills in the kitchen, try buying an easy to use cookbook.

 

Buy Local

 When you buy local you have healthier selections and you increase your chances of finding quality goods. Look up a market that provides an abundance of quality local goods.

 

Look at the Labels

 The best way to eat healthier is to look at the ingredients of what you are eating. When shopping for food, do your best to buy goods that are labeled organic products. Do your best to avoid foods consisting of corn, soy, cottonseed and canola by products. Examples of canola byproducts are oil, starch and flour.
