More fresh foods in your meals has been shown to be the most effective at managing your health. Processed foods tend to have lots of salt or sugar to make them taste good, and in a greater quantity than your body may need each day. Fruits and vegetables will have a greater variety of nutrients to keep you feeling better, and the colorful foods have been shown to improve your mood as well!
4 Learn to cook healthy food you like
I'm not assuming anything here. Cooking isn't your thing? Try a free online course to get started on that. Once you are cooking, think about healthy ways to spice up your favorite meals. Try adding a cup of vegetables to your favorite meal, using spaghetti squash in your next mac and cheese casserole, or adding more vegetables to your favorite pasta dish. Get creative but don't give up on the foods you like to eat.
5 You can still have chocolate cake
Making desserts is still a possibility. You can try some amazingly modified chocolate cake recipes that have better ingredients, or try to make your favorite recipes in muffin tins and freeze them for when you want one. Having a positive attitude and good feelings about eating is the best way to get the results you are looking for.
