Salad is often seen as a healthy staple. Unfortunately loading it down with oils and dressing defeats the purpose. Creamy dressings have a lot of fat and very few nutrients. Instead, opt for vinaigrette-style dressings or create your own simple dressing using olive oil and vinegar. Adding a few walnuts or cranberries to a salad can also add interesting flavors.
You should eat many different kinds of protein each week. Try to eat skinless poultry, fish and lean meats. Eat a lot of eggs as well. Contrary to what used to be believed, food experts now say that one egg per day is not harmful. Try going a whole day without eating any meat once a week. Instead of meat, use peanut butter, seeds, nuts, peas and beans in your meals.
One way to stay fit and healthy is to pack lunches instead of buying them. If you pack meals yourself, there is no need to rely on whatever unhealthy options may be available. Ten minutes or less is all it takes to make a few meals.
Try substituting ground turkey for ground beef in your recipes. The turkey meat has far less calories and saturated fat than the beef. Pick ground turkey breasts since dark meat is similar to ground beef in terms of nutrition. If it is mixed meats, it won’t be as healthy as ground white turkey breast.
