Welcome to a world of better nutrition! As you can see, it is a very big world, complete with all kinds of foods, supplements, diets, and more. Because nutrition varies per person, it can be hard to find techniques that are helpful for you. Here are some suggestions and tips to follow.
Hypnosis can help you make eating healthy effortless. By planting the idea in your subconscious mind that you enjoy vegetables and are not interested in sweet or salty snacks, you’ll find yourself eating the way you want to with no willpower necessary. You’ll be doing it subconsciously, on auto-pilot.
Nutrition That Is Not Bland
It’s OK To Splurge In Moderation
Go ahead and eat some chips or candy. A diet built around depriving yourself of the things you love, will never last. If you love chocolate or chips or a steak, go ahead and indulge yourself. The key to a splurge is moderation. If you let yourself have a small treat every once in a while, you will be much more likely to stay on track, the rest of the time.
The Superstars Of Nutrition
Legumes are superstars of the nutritional world. They provide protein and help balance blood sugar. But they may seem dull. Just dress them up in a good recipe and they are superstars of taste also: lentils become a good veggie burger, chick peas become hummus, beans excel in Mexican dishes, and there is nothing better than a bowl of homemade pea soup on a cold winter day!
Substitute In Tofu
Using cream in recipes may make your food taste really good and rich, but it will also make your waistline expand. Try substituting the cream with silken tofu. It still has the creamy texture, but it offers other benefits such as some extra protein into your favorite home-cooked meals.
Mix A Variety Of Foods With A Blender
A great nutrition tip is to invest in a blender. Blenders are great because you can mix a wide variety of foods into one simple beverage. You can throw in a handful of fruits, a scoop of protein powder, and some oats in a blender to create a fantastic and healthy shake.
Make It White Meat
A great nutrition tip is to opt for white meat when you’re eating chicken or turkey. Although dark meat may taste good, it is much higher in fat. White meat is leaner and much healthier for you. Stay away from the thighs as well and stick with the breast.
Greek Yogurt Is High In Protein
Greek yogurt is higher in protein than the traditional yogurts we are used to. They are much thicker and more filling too. Consider switching to a greek yogurt for your morning smoothie, afternoon snack, or as part of a fruit and grain parfait. The added protein is especially important if you are a vegetarian.
Substitute In Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes are a comforting alternative to high-carb russet potatoes. Substitute them for fries or mashed potatoes. You should serve them with sugar and butter on the side. They also have anti-inflammatory properties, unlike the potatoes that can cause inflammation.
Make A List
Use a list when grocery shopping. People who go to the grocery store unprepared tend to spend more and buy less healthy food than those who go armed with a list of healthy foods they have decided to eat. Sit down and make a plan of meals to make that week. Next, make a corresponding list of ingredients you will need to prepare them as well as healthy snacks.
Don’t go to the store when you are hungry. If you are hungry then your blood sugar is probably low. If your blood sugar is low, then your body will crave sweets, fats and carbohydrates in order to give it the quick boost in insulin and sugar it wants. Avoid the temptation by having a healthy meal or snack before you shop.
Boost Your Immune System With A Healthy Diet
A healthy diet will help to boost your immune system. By boosting your body’s immune system your body will be able to fight against the impurities that cause skin problems. Just keeping track of what you are putting in your body and making sure that what you put in your body boosts the immune system.
Substitute Out Your Dairy
If you find yourself feeling kind of mucus filled after consuming dairy products or if you have an allergy to dairy products, it may be time to give it up. You can get the nutrition that dairy provides by switching to Greek style yogurt, cottage cheese and high-quality whey protein.
Hypnosis Can Help Keep You On Track
If you are trying to build a more nutritious diet, there is no shortage of information available to you. Every person’s body chemistry is unique, and a diet that’s effective for one person may not work for someone else. The goal of this article was to give you the information you need to make a plan of your own.
Clinical Hypnotherapist Dr. Steve G. Jones has many self-hypnosis audio recordings available that will help you make eating a nutritious diet easy and effortless. He can help you control carbs and view food as fuel among many others which will help make it easy to stay healthy.
