How to Eat Healthier? If you mad ea resolution to eat healthier this year, and just keep falling back into your old eating habits, I can help! There are so many ways to eat healthier, and most of them are really, really easy โ€” sometimes itโ€™s as simple as just switching from one food to another! Want to know more? Keep reading! Here are 8 tips on how to eat healthier.

1. Try for Five

If you want to eat healthier, the USDA has one great recommendation that will help: aim for five servings of fresh fruits and vegetables every day.

Theyโ€™re loaded with all sorts of nutrients your body needs to function properly, and they can even help you maintain a healthy weight.

2. Shop the Perimeter

Did you know you could eat healthier just by changing your shopping habits?2

If you stick to the perimeter of the grocery store, where the fresh fruits and veggies and whole grain breads are sold, and avoid the inside aisles, where the calorie, sodium, and fat-laden prepared and processed foods are, youโ€™ll be eating better in no time!

3. Switch to Whole Grain

The process that makes white bread white (which uses actual BLEACH) also leeches the flavor, fiber, and other nutrients from it.

Ick!

But whole grain bread, made with all three parts of the grain, has it all โ€” flavor, fiber, and key nutrients.

4. Stay Away from Fast Food

With few notable exceptions, fast food is just plain nasty, packed with empty calories and too much fat.

By avoiding fast food, youโ€™ll be eating healthier, especially if youโ€™re following these other ways to eat healthierโ€ฆ remember, processed foods at the grocery store arenโ€™t much better than fast food!

5. Ditch the Soda

Speaking of empty calories and nasty chemicals, soda comes to mind.

Even if youโ€™re drinking low-cal or calorie-free soda, itโ€™s still not good for you, especially with so many other, healthier beverage choices out there, like nutrient rich mixed juices and even water.
