Eating healthy doesn’t have to be an event. A healthy diet doesn’t necessarily require you to make a large fancy salad with every meal, shop exclusively at organic grocery stores, or take time out of every day to make a five-course meal complete with quinoa, tofu, and kale. While salads, organic foods, and healthy staples such as quinoa and kale are indeed great for your health, there are far more creative ways to eat healthy without having to take too much time out of your day to do so. In fact, as long as you’re practicing conscious eating, you can eat healthy all day long even when on the go.
Here are seven creative ways you can start eating healthier today — even with a busy schedule.
1. Swap out mayonnaise and sour cream for mashed avocado
Avocados have a creamy consistency and can enhance the taste of all sandwiches and wraps far better than mayonnaise — even vegan mayonnaise. Plus, avocados contain a number of antioxidants and healthy fats that can improve your overall health and drive weight loss. Keep mashed avocado in your refrigerator and mix in a few drops of lemon to prevent the spread from turning brown.
2. Eat sprouted grain bread instead of white or wheat bread
If you insist on eating bread at all, toss out your highly-refined white and wheat breads and start consuming sprouted grain bread. Sprouted grain bread is made from whole grains that have been allowed to sprout, or germinate. This type of bread is less processed, easier to digest, and is generally more nutritious than wheat bread.
