Simple Healthy Foods For the Whole Family in 7 Steps!

54
I know we sometimes feel that preparing healthy food is time consuming and a lot of work, especially for families.
And it can be difficult if you don't know a few tips of the trade.
Here are a few tips that make eating healthier easy: 1.
Eat simply.
We live in a world of convenience, yet we often seem to forget nature's convenience foods.
A nice big crispy fall apple or a bag of spring's sweet cherries.
As parents we often feel we have to prepare a snack for our children instead of handing them a juicy peach.
Eat simply for breakfast and lunch, and save prepared foods for dinner.
2.
Skip a step.
Buy your salad greens already washed.
A lot of markets including Trader Joes and Costco carry prewashed baby greens such as arugula, spinach and mixed greens.
This makes it really easy to open a bag and throw a salad together.
3.
Avoid store bought salad dressings.
Make fast salad dressings with tasty oils.
There is an amazing array of delicious, exotic oils that now fill the markets such as pumpkin seed, almond, sesame, and walnut oils (always buy organic, unheated, cold pressed) or simply first, cold pressed Olive oil which is my favorite olive oil.
Just drizzle a tablespoon of oil, raw apple cider vinegar and a little Sea salt, then mix your greens well, top them with sprouts, sliced avocados, tomatoes and some sunflower or pumpkin seeds, and you've got a healthy, easy salad.
If you have a lime handy, lime and olive oil make a perfect salad dressing-simple! 4.
Buy convenience veggies.
Most stores carry baby carrots and pre-washed and cut broccoli.
Buy them like that and toss them on a plate.
When you have veggies sitting out and easy everyone will snack on them.
5.
Pick one or two days a week to do your food production.
Make the majority of your prepared foods on that day, then on the other days, you have a foundation on which you can put your fresh fruits and veggies.
Ideas: Make pasta sauce on your food production day, and on a non-production day, make a green salad and spiralized zucchini on which to put your sauces and dressings.
6.
Get a simple recipe book.
There are great recipe books on the market, but choose 1 or 2 that boasts simple recipes.
7.
Think Happy Thoughts.
Make eating healthy fun, not a chore.
Your family's energy and mood will improve with each healthy meal, making life more fun and light.
If you eat pizza, so what? I'm sure you had a perfectly good reason for eating it.
Now, take a deep breath, send lots of love to the pizza in your belly, and move on!
