Healthy Habits

  • Make breakfast a daily habit!  Start with Greek yogurt (Oikos Triple Zero or another brand you like) or an egg sandwich on a whole wheat English muffin! 
  • Keep a journal of all your food and beverage intake for a day
  • Cut back on the caffeine – try half caf, half decaf!
  • Try a new vegetable for dinner
  • Instead of late night snacking, listen to your body.  If you are tired, go to sleep.  You may be confusing exhaustion with hunger 
  • Focus on chewing more when eating
  • Don’t order a beverage until your meal comes, if eating out OR if at home, save your flavored beverage for at/after dinner
  • Eat at home for the whole day (or bring all your food to work/errands, etc.)
  • Add spinach to one or more of your meals (sandwich, scrambled eggs, lettuce for your taco, etc.)
  • Plan out tomorrow’s dinner, today
  • Finish eating by 6:30PM
  • Skip dessert and treat yourself to a stress relieving walk after dinner
  • Make “Meatless Monday” happen!  Try black bean tacos, lentils and rice or a stir-fry with edamame! 
  • Take a lunch break at work, do not eat while working!!
  • Dip your fork in the salad dressing, instead of pouring it on to save on calories but still get the flavor!
  • Replace your zero- calorie artificial sweeteners with a plant-based one like stevia
  • No fast food for a day!
  • Try a piece of fruit for dessert!
  • Skip the snacks at work – focus on eating 3 meals for the day, 3-4 hours apart
  • Drink water instead of flavored beverages! (Start increasing by 1 glass at a time.)
  • Have a minimum of 3 servings of vegetables today.  (A serving is ½ cup cooked, 1 cup raw.)
  • Sit at the dinner table tonight, instead of in front of the T.V.
  • Instead of snacking out of the bag, put some in a small bowl and place the bag back in the pantry. 
  • Stress can lead to snacking.  Instead of grabbing candy or chocolate when you feel stressed, take a few deep breaths and have an apple instead! 
  • Cut your food into smaller pieces or take smaller bites when eating
  • Read all food labels today – focus on the serving size, too!
  • Replace your ground beef with black beans tonight for dinner.
  • Save on the salt!!  Hold off on the salt shaker and add in some flavor from fresh ground pepper or herbs and spices.  Try something new! 
  • Trim the portions!  Use smaller plates for your dinner tonight.  Carrying in?   Don’t eat out of the container!  Use a plate instead! 
  • Make a list of 3 quick and easy meals to make for those oh-so-busy days.
  • Make a shopping list when you go to the grocery store to reduce impulse buys.
