Today on Good Food Friday I share tips for getting back into your healthy eating routine!
Start your day with breakfast
One way to get back on track with healthy habits is to start your day with a nutritious breakfast like these apple pie overnight oats. Add ½ cup of oats, 1 tbsp maple syrup, ½ cup diced apple, pecans, cinnamon and nutmeg with 1 cup of real dairy milk which provides 8 grams of high-quality protein compared to 1 gram you’d get from almond beverage. Dairy milk is a nutrient rich beverage that provides 13 essential nutrients including calcium, riboflavin, vitamin D and phosphorous. Studies show dairy foods, as part of a healthy diet, may contribute to better bone health, lower blood pressure, and reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.
Make lunch easy
Try the wrap hack to make an easy balanced lunch. I started with a Crepini Egg Wrap – these are a delicate but durable crepe-like wrap made from mostly eggs. You can crisp it warm it, cook it or grill it right out of the pack -it has a neutral flavor so you can use it for sweet or savory recipes. Add 1 slice of sharp cheddar cheese. Natural cheeses, like Cheddar and Swiss, are naturally low in lactose so they are great options for people who are lactose intolerant. Then add arugula, salsa and an egg. Fold it up and enjoy. These wraps are also Keto-friendly, sugar-free, gluten-free and non-GMO.
Enjoy lightened-up versions of your favorite foods
If you are a bread, bagel or pizza lover – this is a zero net carb lower calorie by ThinSlim Foods you can find them at ThinSlimFoods.com. Their products are baked to match the taste and texture of traditional versions but high in fiber so keep you full longer. They also make low carbohydrate chips, pasta and baked goods that make it easy to eat low carb without giving up what you love but. you don’t have to follow a low carbohydrate diet to enjoy them.
Add flavor and nutrition to meals for not a lot of calories
Salsa is a great way to add more flavor and nutrition to meals and snack– these Fresh Cravings Certified organic salsas are made with just a short list of clean, organic ingredients like vine-ripened tomatoes, crisp vegetables, zesty peppers and spices. They are also refrigerated not jarred, you can find the organic at Publix and conventional at Walmart in Chunky Medium Spice or Restaurant Style in Mild, Medium and Hot.
