Break Bad Habits with Food Hacks

Whether you are trying to lose some weight or just want to be healthier for the new season, there are some things you can do to break your bad habits. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite food hacks to break your bad habits.

Keeping It Simple

There seems to be a new fab diet released every week. But instead of following the fads, why not try to keep your eating routine simple? When in doubt just simple by eating everything in balance. Balance every meal with a high-quality protein like meat, fish, tofu, or beans; a complex carb like brown rice, potatoes, or quinoa; and a healthy fat like nuts, seeds, olive oil, or avocados. Be sure to make your plate at least half fruit and vegetables in order to meet your daily fiber needs.

Don’t Buy Junk Food

If you are easily swayed by chips and cookies, don’t bring them into the house. Instead make a healthy snack substitute or have a bowl of fruit instead to quench your snack craving.

Make Your Lunch the Night Before

We all tell ourselves there will be plenty of time to make lunch before work or school. But here you are again, eating the same vending machine chips or fast food meal. Packing your lunch the night before allows you to pack something that is healthy and ready to eat. Whether it is leftovers for dinner or a mason jar salad, planning your lunch the night before lets you walk out of your house ready to face the day.

Snack Smart

Some days, you just can’t resist snacking. But instead of reaching for a candy bar or a bag of chips, reach for some fats. Eating some healthy fats will help you eat fewer calories over the course of the day because they are more satisfying. Try things like nut butters like almonds and cashews; nuts like almonds, walnuts, and pistachios; eggs; and avocados to satisfy your snack craving.
