7 Healthy Eating Tips

#1 Make Small Changes

Create small, specific, and measurable goals. Begin with a victory you can define and that means something to you. Trying to change too many things at a time or setting goals that are too hard to accomplish will get you frustrated instead.

#5 Drink plenty of water

Keeping hydrated is crucial for health and well-being, but we usually do not consume enough fluids each day. To function properly, all the cells and organs of the body need water.

Our bodies are 60 percent water, and our blood is 90 percent water. Water is essential for the kidneys and many other body functions. Also when we are dehydrated, our skin is more vulnerable to skin disorders and wrinkling.

Having variety in your diet is essential. Make sure you eat a rainbow of colors of fruits and veggies as different colored produce contain different micronutrients (vitamins and minerals).

It will also make your meal look brighter and happier and remember that “You eat with your eyes first.”
