Healthy Eating Tips and Tricks

https://train.fitness -   Healthy Eating Tips and TricksBy Richard Scrivener   1. Select foods with only one ingredient – the food itself 2. Healthy snack options are hard to come by on the fly. So stock up with beef jerky, mixed nuts, (really) dark chocolate (80-90%), protein powder, nut butter and a spoon!3. Make the government guidelines of five fruit and veg your minimum; shoot for five to eight per day4. Get a large Kilner jar, as many veggies of different colours as you can, chop ‘till your hands hurt, and throw them all in the air tight jar. Toss them into quick omelets, stir-fries and to accompany main meals. 5. Have breakfast ready before you wake up. Make an egg frittata the night before (tossing in veggies too) - the bigger the better. Cut into even portions and ha

Supermarkets hold back entire isles for ‘free from’ products and most restaurants mark clearly and proudly their ‘GF’ options. But unless diagnosed with a disagreement, how beneficial is this Gwyneth Paltrow inspired change? Firstly, what is gluten? It’s a combination of two proteins found in cereal grains such as wheat, barl

A lot of us generally have a slightly messed up vision of ourselves. Mirrors and photos tell lies and that’s before we get into our feelings and emotions towards our own body. Having another perso
