For those like myself who have lived lives of preservative processed, ground beef reliant, saturated fat filled runs to the store, here is an article outlining some simple substitutions to make small steps towards starting to eat healthier every day. Without claiming to be an expert or professional nutritionist I have found a few positive dietary changes I would like to share with like minded people.

Pick up a multi-vitamin to supplement your current habits and start a path to better food choices and eating healthier. If you eat like I had been eating then you are lacking in many important minerals and vitamins including A, B, and C. Just about every daily vitamin you will find will have these important minerals and more to supplement your diet and give the body more nutrition. Shop around and find an inexpensive deal. Myths about kidney stones have been disproven by medical journals.

Avocado is a food I am embarrassed to have only recently sampled for the first time. Avocados are an excellent source of nutrition including many vitamins and minerals. I am not sure why my Northern California upbringing kept me blind to this tasty treat.

Smoothies may be full of sugar, but its natural sweetness unlike a pixie stick of candy bar. The blended fruit flavor is much easier to tolerate for citrus sensitive people like me who find some difficulty with individual fruit. Multiple servings in an easy to drink and delicious smoothie are refreshing and nutritious and perfect for spring and summer days upcoming.

All natural ingredients are what you want in your snacks. Sun Chips for example still have some fat and salt but have all natural ingredients. Beware of lists of twenty-five ingredients of which you have never heard of. Stay simple and natural and reduce your intake of processed foods little by little.

Fruit bars with real fruit are brilliant sources of multiple vitamins and minerals. Looking at the nutrition facts and net weight of the product to get the best but and the healthiest product. Plus they taste great and are good to take with you on the go.

Make sure when you have wheat products that you find the whole grain wheat options to be sure to get the most out of your grain intake.

Drink a lot of water if you have not already been doing so. At least six glasses a day helps cleanse out waste and toxins form your body and keep things flowing smoothly in your body. Also substituting alcohol or soda with water will reduce caloric and sugar intake.

Making better choices can start small and does not have to be an all out onslaught against your routines and favorites. Simply adjusting parts of your plan can bring a healthier you with more energy. Start small and you may be surprised to feel better about your choices and notice improvements in your mood.
