The first thing you probably consider when you think about resetting your health is your nutrition. The way you eat, how much, and the ingredients you use are all essential to living a long, healthy, balanced life.
Here are some easy ways to get started on balancing out and resetting your nutrition.
Drink Your Water
Of course, the first tip is going to be drinking water! Everyone needs water, and chances are you haven’t been drinking enough. Dehydration can often be very subtle, where you barely notice it. There are a few techniques that help you drink more water without thinking too much about it.
Start your day off with a glass of water. This is simple and a good way to start your morning routine. Brush your teeth, then drink your water.
Have water with every meal. Skip the juice or soda, and just have water instead. Save your other drinks for after your meal is over.
Bring water with you. Get a reusable water bottle and keep it in your car, your office, or anywhere else you plan to be.
Find Nutritious Foods You Love
You will absolutely not stick to a nutritious meal plan if you don’t enjoy what you’re eating. Take some time to find healthy foods that you actually like to eat.
Think about your favorite foods and write them down. Look through your list of favorites and highlight the foods that contain a lot of nutrients. This might be fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, dairy, nuts and seeds, and whole grains.
This will become your list of healthy ingredients to create meals with as you move forward with your health reset.
Go Seasonal With Your Food
To switch things up every couple months, look into using more ingredients that are in season. For example, in the fall, you can use pumpkin, butternut squash, and apples in your meals, then switch to pineapple, peaches, and seafood in the summertime.
Using seasonal ingredients not only means your food will taste better, but it is also more affordable. Plus, it helps you to create more variety in your meal plans.
Consider Farmer’s Markets or CSAs
When it comes to your nutrition, it helps to do something a little different during a reset. If you typically get your produce or other foods from the supermarket, consider something like a CSA for local produce or check out your local farmer’s market. This is a way to support your local community and have high-quality organic produce without spending too much.
