Get back to your healthy eating habits with these 3 simple ways to eat healthy every day and start shedding that winter weight today!
1. Eat More Fiber
When setting out on starting a healthy meal plan, including more fiber is an easy way to lose weight and boost your energy levels. Good gluten-free sources of fiber include nuts (like almonds, pecans and peanuts), all types of berries and flax seeds. Including more fiber in your diet will also lead to less binging, thanks to fiber’s satiating effects, helping you feel full for a longer period of time.
2. Up Your Protein
Of the three main sources of calories (carbohydrates, protein and fat), protein is the nutrient that is least likely to be stored as body fat. Protein also provides your body with it’s basic building blocks and supports your body’s ability to build and repair tissues. You also use protein to make enzymes, hormones and other body chemicals! Purely Inspired® Organic Protein provides 20g of plant-based protein, at least 7g of fiber – making it a great choice to increase your protein without adding extra fat or carbs to your diet!
3. Eat More Vegetables
Yes, vegetables are low in calories and make a good substitute for portions of potatoes, pasta and rice – however they have another benefit. Vegetables help support overall health by providing numerous essential micronutrients along with vitamins and minerals like vitamins A and C, folic acid, magnesium, and potassium! They are also high in fiber, which further supports weight loss and intestinal health.
