Eating Your Way To Wellness – Keep It Fresh And Varied

Healthy Living: Eating Your Way to Wellness

When it comes to happiness and wellbeing, things are never as simple as flicking a switch.

All of us need to maintain our mental and physical health. Happiness is something that needs to be worked on throughout our lives.

It’s important to integrate a focus on wellbeing into our everyday lives, and one of the simplest ways to do so is through to food that we eat.

There’s a wealth of research which illustrates just how large an impact our diet can have on our wellbeing, with those who tend to eat unhealthy, poor-quality food that is high in saturated fats tending to report lower mood levels and less energy.

Our food choices are crucial to our mental and physical health. It’s important to know which choices can have a positive impact. With that in mind, here’s a round-up of some of the best ways to eat your way to wellness.

It’s no secret that most of the worst foodstuffs out there tend to be of the hyper-processed variety.

Fresh food and fresh ingredients, on the other hand, make you feel much better right away.

Whether you’re just after a quick burger or craving the best sushi you can get your hands on, opting to eat fresh will always be a better, healthier option than going for processed food.

If you can make fresh ingredients and fresh dishes a priority in your meal choices, you’re much more likely to be consuming those all-important vitamins and antioxidants which are well proven to aid wellbeing, and often get removed during food processing

Keep it Varied

Ensuring plenty of variety in every part of your life is unmistakably important to wellbeing.

Repetitive meals will quickly get dull, meaning you’re more likely not to look forward to mealtimes. As a result, you may find yourself feeling less motivated to ensure you get the most out of your meals.

Having a varied diet is recommended by pretty much every expert out there, as it also means you’re more likely to consume a greater range of healthy ingredients.

A fun way to keep it varied is to experiment with different cuisines, with Japanese food being a great example of a staggering varied cuisine with great health benefits, which is widely available and can be ordered anywhere nowadays thanks to Deliveroo.

They say variety is the spice of life. And it has never been easier to keep your diet as interesting as possible.

Eating Your Way to Wellness – Love What You Eat

This one might seem a little obvious to some, but it is often overlooked when people approach their diets from a wellbeing perspective.

Loving your food and cherishing your mealtimes is an absolutely essential part of eating your way to well-being, so make sure you actually enjoy the food you’re choosing to eat and don’t be afraid to experiment until you find the dishes that are right for you. If your mealtimes don’t feel like a highlight of your day, you aren’t doing it right.

Keeping it social is also a great way to ensure you enjoy your lunch, so you should make sure you book in some time with friends to order in some takeaway and have a much-needed catch-up.

Don’t forget to eat slowly too, to better enjoy the flavors and textures in your food and aid your digestion.

That’s all for now!

3 Essential Tips to Eating Your Way to WellnessClick To Tweet

1/ Cook Your Own Meals

We said it earlier, “keep it fresh” 

Cooking your own meals puts you in touch with the food that you’re using and eating and opens you up to new ideas. Putting yourself in charge of the ingredients allows you to monitor the sugar, salt and fat that are in your meals. Cooking your own meals is step one to eating your way to wellness

2/ Use Herbs Instead of All the Salt

We mentioned it above, “Salt”

Instead of shaking salt on all your food, try using herbs to flavor your meals instead or choose a healthy salt to sprinkle instead like Pink Himalayan Salt

3/ Ditch the Sugary Food

Sugary foods are not part of a healthy diet.

Instead of choosing something with sugar, have an apple, some berries, a banana, an orange, or just enjoy sweet veggies like carrots instead.

Or use a sugar substitute like Stevia Sweetener.

    Big on eating fresh fruits and veggies Dexter. Plus I eat light, and go veggie most of the time. Keeps me lean, if not ripped LOL, and energizes my workouts and work day too. Folks wonder how I create so much content and make so many friends through networking. I take care of my body and manage my energy. Fool proof way to do it. Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Informative as usual… I’ve been watching my sugar intake. I use very little of it and some fruits are really high. So I eat very little fruits. More protein. 🙂

    Hey Dexter,

    Thanks a lot for the simple and easy-to-follow tips! Enjoyed reading.

    I would add: focus on whole foods in their natural state, drink plenty of fresh water (though it’s not under ‘eating’ category 🙂 ), and always have a healthy snack at hand— fruits, nuts, and seeds are my favs!

    Thanks again and keep it up!
