Of course, diet is one of the main factors of a healthy lifestyle. What you eat matters a lot. Maybe it matters a lot more than you suspect it to. Now, what if you could ask your nutritionist of dietician what to eat for a day or two? Free yourself from all the worries because you do not need to pay a visit to a nutritionist or dietician to figure out what meals would suit a healthy lifestyle best. Here are our suggestions for you.
Having a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast would always be a good idea. However, we do not recommend instant ones. Opt for quick-cooking oats and mix them with non-fat milk. Top it with some low-fat cheese, cinnamon or whatever healthy pick you have. Then, heat it in the microwave. The powerhouse combination of carbohydrates, fiber, and fats would keep your tummy full and going until lunchtime. For your beverage, you may try an orange juice to pair your oatmeal with. Not only it keeps you hydrated but also compensates for the vitamins your body needs to keep you going throughout the day. The good news is that you can eat oatmeal even when it is not breakfast time. Just go searching for healthy oatmeal recipes that would suit lunch and dinner. Or better yet, go experiment.
A healthy sandwich for lunch would be great. Throw in the cucumber, onions, tomatoes, avocado, and lettuce. It is all up to you on how you want your sandwich. The rule is simple: the more veggies you put in that sandwich, the healthier and the better meal it becomes.
For dessert, raspberries are highly recommended. Well, choosing fruits for dessert is really very healthy. But if you are tired of your usual apple, banana or mango, try some berries. Not only are they yummy and nutritious. They are also easy to eat and you can carry them anywhere you go.
You must also not skip an afternoon snack especially when your tummy pleads you to eat. Not eating during the afternoon may just make you too hungry by dinnertime which would gie you the tendency to binge on your dinner. The thing is your snack must be composed of carbohydrates and protein. Salty or sweet? It is up to you. Choose a fruit for your afternoon snack. It is a really healthy choice. But if you eat the fruit alone, you may not enjoy the meal. You must pair with a good protein source like cheese.
Okay, it is dinner time! For the appetizer, we present a bowl of salad. Go for the usual contents like tomatoes, lettuce, cucumber, and red onions. Be creative. It is up to you, darling.
For the main course, you may some meat together with steamed potatoes and some veggies. You may also top your potato with hummus and low-fat sour cream. You do not have to be strict about your meal. Just do not forget to make room for veggies and always opt for low-fat or non-fat choices.
To finish your day, you may go for a healthy low-fat choice like a bar of dark chocolate.
