Your Food Shapes You

From crown to sole.

As we embark on a new year journey, many of us have pledged to ourselves and our dear ones to lead a more nourishing lifestyle. What does this entail, and how can we achieve it? To commence, we can assess our dietary habits and, if necessary, make adjustments.

Are you incorporating vegetables into your diet? If so, what types? A large number of us likely consume vegetables to ensure we meet the minimum recommended servings outlined in the dietary guidelines. However, not all vegetables offer the same nutritional benefits. If shedding some extra weight is a goal, try filling half of your plate with non-starchy vegetables. Non-starchy veggies are lower in carbs, making them great for nutrient absorption, fiber intake, and hydration. Carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, and other dark leafy greens are excellent options.

To help manage your portion sizes, consider eating your meals from smaller plates or bowls. This simple trick creates an optical illusion that can help you feel full with less food. Give it a try and see the difference it makes.

Kickstart your mornings with a nutritious bowl of oatmeal, rich in fiber and energy to fuel your day. Enhance the nutritional value by adding fruits to your oatmeal, providing essential vitamins, minerals, and a burst of flavor that plain oatmeal lacks.

Lastly, for coffee enthusiasts, opting for black coffee in the morning might be a healthier choice. Adding sugar, cream, or other flavorings to your coffee can introduce unnecessary calories. Trim down on these extras to enjoy the caffeine boost without the added calories.
