Eat healthy, balanced and nutritious




It is a daily goal for many of us, but for 24 hours there is plenty of scope for mistakes: from snacks that easily become 'addictive', even healthy, to junk food that seems to come in the most stressful moments.
 

Eat healthy, balanced and nutritious
 
But nutritionists seem to have the best tricks to facilitate this 'mission' of having a healthy diet. The Byrdie site highlights some of these tricks:
 
Do not consider bread a staple food. Grains, especially those that have been processed into flours, are relatively poor in nutrients compared to whole foods, which range from oats to brown rice or vegetables.
 
Always eat protein at breakfast. It is what will help you quench hunger and keep it full for longer, as well as helping to combat the urge to eat sweets.
 
Keep the shells wherever possible. Eating fruits and vegetables in the husk whenever possible is the best way to increase your fiber intake, known for its health benefits such as preventing cardiovascular disease, diabetes and obesity, and improving digestive health.
 
Bet on healthy fats. Eating one or two sources of healthy fats per day is good for health and diet.
 
Make a good night's sleep the priority. If you do not sleep well, you will not feel good or eat well.
 
Nourish the intestine. The microbiome is essential for your immune system and for managing your weight and appetite. So choose foods and beverages that contribute to the health of your gut.
 
Maintain hydration. It may seem very simple, but many of us do not drink the amount of water needed to promote proper hydration.
 
Eat liver. Nutritionist Cassandra Barns says that "the liver is probably the most nutrient-rich superfood we can eat." It is rich in iron and vitamins B and A, which give it energy and strengthen the immune system.
