1. Limit Eating Out
Although it can be difficult not to eat out at work when many of your coworkers are going out to lunch, you can pack your own meal and tag along with them anyway. Your mind, body and pocketbook will thank you. It is also very beneficial to get out of the office to stretch your legs and get some fresh air. So take your lunch outside and get in your vitamin D while enjoying a great meal and a nice break. If you do eat out for lunch, consider going to a healthier restaurant and order water instead of soda or other sugary drinks.
2. Grow Your Own Produce
Growing your own produce can help ensure that your fruits and veggies are fresh, free from pesticides and cost less. Planting a garden and tending to it can be incredibly therapeutic as well. Small plants or seeds can cost as little as a few dollars and they can grow fruits and veggies all season long. Some produce can be grown in containers on your porch or balcony, depending on your region.
Remeber that eating well is truly important. It affects everything from your mindset to how long you may live. If you have a family it’s even more important to eat healthily so you can pass healthy eating habits onto your children. A good diet doesn’t have to be super difficult to attain and it makes all the difference for your health.
