The Journey of Healthy Eating

A couple of years ago, I started my journey to healthy eating.  It wasn't easy and it didn't all happen at once.  It started slowly with just one simple habit: eating a protein-rich breakfast everyday.  That was just the beginning.  Once I started to notice postive changes, I craved more and took further steps on my journey to better health.

We are all on this journey together and healthy eating looks different for everyone.  What constitutes "healthy" for one person may not be "healthy" for another.  I am not here to judge you on what that looks like for you, and it is up to you to define your own "healthy".

Do you have to be a strict vegan?  Certainly not (unless that's the journey you choose, and I support you).  OK, I still eat chococlate, cake, pizza and crisps - I just don't go crazy!  I listen to my body and know it's limits.  It's perfectly OK to eat a protein-rich breakfast each day and enjoy a scoop of ice cream after dinner!

Instead of telling you exactly how your journey to healthy eating needs to look, I'm sharing the top 5 tips I've learned along the way.  Maybe you'll find a couple of them helpful.

JOURNEY TO HEALTHY EATING: 5 THINGS I'VE LEARNED

  • Start with one healthy habit per day

As I said, eating a protein-rich breakfast was where I started.  If you want to start there too, that's great!  It could be somthing as simple as drinking enough water to stay hydrated, or adding an extra serving of vegetables at dinner.  It might even be cooking dinner at home instead of eating out.  Whatever that step, however small it may seem, go for it!  You can do this and I'm cheering you on.

  • Listen to your body

I'm not a fan of making lots of drastic changes all at aonce.  It not only sets you up for failure but also doesn't feel so great.  Start to listen to your body.  How do you feel when you eat certain foods or do certain activities?  Let your body be your guide.  I bet you'll notice you feel better with each healthy choice you make.

  • Don't be too hard on yourself

Be imperfect!  Embrace it!  Even if you stumble a little along the way, keep going.  Don't stop.  Pick yourself up and keep plodding along.  Making changes, expecially ones like healthier eating can be difficult.  Give yourself time and remember the first tip of starting with one small habit.  Allow yourself to breathe and make lasting changes.  Remember, perfection is not the goal.  This is s journey full of ups and downs.  Embrace it and keep moving forward.

  • Don't be afraid of the next step

Once you master that first healthy habit, move on to the next.  Here are some ideas to help you on your journey:

  • Pack a healthy lunch instead of eating out
  • Cook dinner at home
  • Drink more water
  • Start growing a garden
  • Buy healthy ingredients in bulk and cook large batches for the week
  • Make and stick to a healthy eating budget
  • Try a new food each week
