Making a few minor upgrades to our daily staples can have a big impact toward our healthy eating goals. Check out these 5 tips!
1️⃣ Cook with coconut oil.
Coconut oil can help your body burn fat more effectively and it can help keep your appetite under control. It can also help protect your body from harmful pathogens and even prevent some infections.
2️⃣ Use pink Himalayan salt instead of table salt.
While you might be used to looking at salt as something that is “bad” for you, Himalayan salt is quite the opposite. This pink salt contains 84 minerals and other important bio compounds, along with quite a few other health benefits. Himalayan salt can help balance blood sugar and can even improve your sleeping patterns.
3️⃣ Bring eggs back to your breakfast plate.
Try starting your day with a high protein, low sugar breakfast. Eggs are high in protein and also contain a great deal of vitamins and minerals. Unlike a sweet breakfast, eating eggs will not spike your blood sugar therefore you will stay fuller longer.
4️⃣ Swap out one cup of coffee a day for tea.
You don’t need to give up coffee for good, just simply to replace one cup of day with an herbal tea. Drinking less coffee can lower stress, help your body respond more efficiently to blood sugar and help eliminate digestive discomfort such as heartburn.
5️⃣ Add more dark leafy greens.
Instead of focusing on what to eliminate from your diet, simply add more of what you know is good. Eating more dark leafy greens such as kale is a great way to upgrade your diet. Kale is high in fiber, iron and antioxidants, and will help you fill up on something that is great for you. – credit to Natalie Canizares
