Set up a healthy shopping list to stock your kitchen with foods that allow you to put together a healthy meal anytime! Keep healthy snacks handy to control your craving between meals. Eating healthy is an art because we have different needs and priorities. In general, healthy foods can be grouped as per the following guide.
Cholesterol and Blood Sugar Helpers
Omega 3 Fatty Acid Rich Foods
Low Fat Dairy
Lean Cut Meat
Skinless Chicken and Turkey
Grape Seed Oil
It is important to maintain a balanced diet by composing your healthy shopping list with several items from every group of the above mentioned guide. Vary the amount of the food from different groups according to your objective. For example, for detoxification, weight loss and weight control purposes, you may purchase more fruits and vegetables. If you intend to increase your fitness and strengthen your muscles, you may go for more high energy and high protein foods such as lean meat and fish. Discuss with your doctor or nutritionist to determine the right amount of food intake if you need to change your diet.
Include some treats in your healthy shopping list to keep your spirit up. Try to go for snacks and sweets made of natural ingredients with minimal processed food ingredients. High energy granola bars and dark chocolates are great choices for treats. Consume them in moderation to maintain a balanced and healthy diet. Based on the guide given here, buy foods that are readily available at bargain prices. Try to increase the variety of food to ensure you and your family members enjoy maintaining healthy eating habits.
