GetbackinothealthyeatigAfter a holiday weekend filled with indulging in sweets and high calorie beverages it’s difficult from some to get back into the routine of healthy eating.  But as long as you have the desire to get back into pre-holiday shape, there is still hope.  Here are a few great tips on how you can return to the path of healthy eating.


Start the day off with a healthy breakfast. Eating a well-balance breakfast with start your day on a lighter note as opposed to eating a sugary meal that will create the urge for sweets for the rest of the day. Try this: Eggs with avocado and toast. The eggs will provide you with protein to keep you feeling full. The avocado alone contains a wide variety of nutrients such as 20 different vitamins and minerals including fiber and healthy fats. For toast, choose whole grain.


Stay Hydrated. After a long weekend of celebrating, you may be dehydrated.  Drinking water throughout the day will help. Stay hydrated by drinking half your body weight in water or approximately 8 glasses of water, add fruit or lemon to help the detoxification process.


Snacking. Snacking on healthy foods throughout the day can help curb your appetite so you don’t over eat during your next meal. Here are some suggestions for healthy snacks: Whole wheat crackers with hummus, apples with peanut butter, trail mix with no sodium, fruit, either dried or fresh. All are high in fiber and contain healthy fats.


Exercise. Get back into the mindset of working out by going for a walk during your lunch break, you will burn a few calories from lunch and feel better stretching your limbs after a work day morning of sitting at your desk.  To further keep you motivated during the week, pack your gym bag and keep it in the car so you can go straight to the gym right after work. 


End the day with a light and early dinner. Studies have shown that food eaten during the night or late evening is more likely to be converted into fat, try eating a little early so that you have more time to burn off the calories from your meal.  Some examples of a light dinner are: Salad with grilled chicken, vegetable wrap, salmon with roasted vegetables and quinoa. Always make sure add a larger portion of vegetables and plant based protein to your meal.
