5 quick and painless real food changes

posted in: Holistic Wellness | 1

I'm sure you guys have noticed by now that I'm just a little bit of a geek when it comes to food and nutrition. Lately, though, I've had to let a lot of things slide due to the holidays. 2 year olds and husbands deserve to eat white sugar and lots of pie at Christmas time, and that's all there is to it. Another setback has been my unrelenting fatigue from growing a little human inside me, so I've had to make some compromises in order to just get us fed. I usually make almost everything we eat from scratch, but that's not possible right now so I've been buying more premade foods and making a lot of green smoothies.

Freeze food to get ahead + reduce waste!

But the holidays are over, and I'm finding it easier to get out of bed in the mornings. So back to it! I know a lot of people are in the same boat right now with New Years resolutions and all that, so I thought I'd put together this list of things I kept doing even during my season of compromise. I know that when you're first starting to eat healthier and cook more, it can be overwhelming to make a lot of changes at once. These are 5 things that are so easy that you barely have to think about them once you get the ingredients home. Here's to a healthier year for everyone!
  1. Replace white sugar with honey, especially raw, local honey if you can find it. LocalHarvest is a good place to look!
  2. Use whole wheat flour in your baking rather than white. I have never had a problem simply replacing white flour in any given recipe.
  3. Switch to whole grain pasta.
  4. Eat oatmeal instead of boxed cereal. You can mix it with milk and fruit and stuff the night before and stick it in the fridge, and it's ready to go in the morning. So easy and soaking it also increases the nutritional benefits!
  5. Each time you grocery shop, buy something in the produce section that you normally don't. Trying new foods is fun and keeps things interesting, and variety is good for you!
