Don’t Be A Foodie, Be A Healthy Foodie!
Is it even possible to eat healthy and delicious at the same time? Well, many
believe that in order to be healthy, one must sacrifice taste, and that’s
Being a healthy foodie is all about eating smart. So, here are some lifestyle
changes that you can adapt to keep those taste buds alive while you’re still
Eat Tasty But In Moderation
Let’s be honest, fruits cannot replace the temptation set by chocolates. So, the trick, rather the simple solution, is to eat what you love in moderation. If you’re
in the mood for some Pizza, make sure to order for a regular-sized Pizza instead
of a large one. Research says that sharing your food is actually a good way to
keep a check on yourself, as you’re not only getting to eat what you want, but
you’re also putting a restriction on the quantity.
Stick To Home-Cooked Meals
If burgers & pizzas are what you crave, eat them, but make them at home in a
healthy way. Take control of your meal and add some healthy ingredients to it to make it healthy & tasty. For example: adding an egg and some extra lettuce to your burger, and topping it off with some herbs will deliver a punch of flavors and give you the proteins needed to stay in shape.
Pro Tip: Cooking your meals lets you decide the number of calories you want
to add or deduct.
Quality Matters The Most
Quality of the food items makes a huge difference when we talk about food
and its impact on the human body. Processed food or chemically enhanced
food items come with side effects, it’s wiser to go for all-natural and organic
food items as they’re a lot more reliable and have zero side-effects. For
example: If you’re a chocolate lover, try developing a taste for dark chocolate
and avoid eating chocolates with artificial sweeteners in them. Dark chocolates
with 70% cocoa are rich in antioxidants and are considered great for stress &
Exercising Is A Must
If you’re a foodie, it’s important to know that fitness is all about calories. If you
like eating a lot, you’re consuming more calories and hence, it’s important that
you burn more calories than consume to stay in proper shape. Make walking a
part of your everyday life, and if you can add high-intensity workouts such as
running, cycling or strength training, to your daily routine, you never have to
worry about embracing the foodie in you.
