Fruits and vegetables need a larger presence in your diet. They offer the most nutrients for the least amount of calories. But nobody is going to stick to a healthy diet if you’re just eating broccoli and apples every single day. Build some variety into your diet! Go to the grocery store or the local farmer’s market and pick a new fruit that you’re never tried before. Have the staff help you choose a ripe one, or some stores even keep a guide posted somewhere in the produce section now. Come back and tell me what you tried and how you liked it!
You’re probably tired of hearing it, but eating more vegetables is the key to cutting down your caloric intake. I understand that it can be boring to steam broccoli every day, though. Today, I’m encouraging you to try a new vegetable. Go to the grocery store and pick something out of the produce section that you’ve never had before. Prep it, drizzle it with some oil and seasonings, and bake it. Or steam it. Whatever sounds like a good idea to you. Do a little research if you’re picking something you know nothing about. Should you peel it? Can it be eaten raw? What kind of spices go best with it? Add something new to your repertoire today!
