Healthy eating seems to be fashionable nowadays, but the truth is that it seems often too hard to achieve, we have so little time, and a diet is usually so unappetizing…Easy to say, but difficult to put into practice. We are to stressed to add to our many responsibilities and roles that of being a home cook, shopping for groceries… too much! There are also those that think that it’s not worth it if you have to stop eating everything you like, condemned to a diet of steamed vegetables? Hungry all the time?
But come on, don`t despair, eating healthy is possible and it can be quite tasty and not fattening. Eating healthy is about eating varied foods, tasty foods and of course feeling better.
We probably all know the general guidelines for a healthy diet, we hear them all around, we see them on paper, on TV… We won’t be discovering anything too amazing, but let’s go over them:
– We should choose food that is low in saturated fats and cholesterol (please avoid processed baked goods!!)
– Limit the amount of sugar (and forget about White sugar, keep to the Brown, at least it’s a bit healthier) and the amount of salt.
– Eat fresh food, specially vegetables and fruits.
– Increase the amount of fibre in your diet: don’t forget your cereal.
– Limit the amount of red meat that you eat.
– Drink more water, and avoid soft drinks!
Does it sound boring? Do you think you’re leaving out everything you like? The challenge is not to do so. There are products that we don’t even know are quite healthy and we love them, so don’t be overly sad. A healthy diet can be tasty and even easy to cook. Incredible, isn’t it? Let’s give a few examples of things that can help you.
Solutions for those that have little time:
– Do your shopping on the internet: there are many webs directly linked to farms where you have a great offer of fruit and vegetables. They’ll serve your weekly orders at home, and will offer advice on what is best on each season. Don’t be shy, try new things, there’s more things other than carrots and tomatoes! And sometimes it’s even cheaper than going to the supermarket, you avoid intermediaries and can find some very attractive prices.
– Buy yourself an electricgriddle or simply a wok: there are tons of recipes that you can do in no more than 15 minutes. And of course you eliminate from your diet a lot of unnecessaryfat. Even the clearing up gets a lot easier!
Ideas for those that don’t want to forfeitgreat taste:
– Have always at home some ham gobbets, the best is 100% IbericoBellota (check at www.jamonesjuanpedrodomecq.com), the fat in these 100% Iberico pigs is composed in a very high percentage of oleic acid, the same as in olive oil, thus being a healthy kind of fat. These small dices really flavor up any plate. Specially good when you’re serving vegetables dishes, even the children will eat them! Add a few gobbets of 100% Iberico Ham at the last moment, let the fat sink in a few minutes, and ready to go! Youwon’tfindittastier!
– Forget about milk chocolate and start eating only dark: we recommend 70% cocoa, your sweet tooth will find something to eat, within the healthy diet!
– Always cook with olive oil: it gives your plates much more flavor, it lasts longer and it’s much healthier!
And of course, don’t forget one of the basics: It’s not only what we eat but when we eat it: eat at least 4 meals a day and never forget your breakfast.
Breakfast is easy to prepare, but basic in our diet. Give it its due: it’s not just a quick coffee or tea, include always some fruit, even if it’s just a juice. Add some cereal and a piece of toast (whole wheat) with olive oil or honey and you will have a very healthy meal with no excess of calories and ready in 10 minutes. You will feel full of energy going to work!
