You told us: Here are your tips for eating more healthily

Did your suggestion make the cut?

WE’VE BEEN ON a bit of a healthy eating binge in recent times. In our quest to become more healthy and eat better, we talked about organic and permaculture food production here, and gave ideas for healthy snacks here, as well as some clean recipes to drool over right here.

But that’s not enough for us, oh know. So we rounded up our final selection of the best healthy eating tips making the rounds out there.

Meal prep

Probably the best idea is to prepare your meals in advance. This means that you cook for 3-5 days in advance and have lots of healthy, fresh food ready for you when you’re feeling peckish – and trying to avoid the siren call of pizza.

You don’t have to go extreme with this – but knowing what you’ll be eating for the week and having the ingredients to hand, if not somewhat ready, is a great way to keep your healthy eating on track.

Again – preparation is key. If you have a bag of almonds on your desk you won’t be tempted by the vending machine come 3pm. Other simple snack ideas are

  • carrot sticks and hummus
  • celery sticks with peanut butter and raisins
  • apples with a sharp cheddar cheese

All of these snacks have some protein in them and a little natural sweetness which will keep you satisfied and fuller for longer.

Your tips…

And we put the call out to you, dear readers – we wanted to know what your best healthy eating tips were. And you didn’t disappoint.
