Eating better is a top New Year’s resolution that often falls by the wayside.
But with a little effort, it’s not that hard to change your diet. When you eat better, you feel better. That’s what I’ve found, anyway. And I’ve been eating a lot better since I started working with a nutritionist a few months ago. I learned that I was eating a lot of processed foods, and I replaced them with fresh vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, and legumes. I also cut out gluten, dairy, and sugar.
And, as you can tell from my last post, it’s been pretty great. It’s trendy to say that you should “eat clean” and “eat well,” but what does that mean? What does “eating clean” really mean? Is there a difference between eating clean and eating healthy?
The short answer is, “yes.”
“Clean eating” is a trend diet that focuses on consuming whole, unprocessed foods. But what does “eating healthy” mean? It means eating a wide variety of nutrient-dense foods that will keep your body strong and healthy. You know how you get that feeling when you’re eating something tasty, and you think, “wow, I can’t believe I ate that whole thing!”
It’s not because you were hungry, it’s because your body was craving that specific nutrient. Now, that doesn’t mean you should run out and eat a whole cake and call it a day, but many foods are high in the nutrients you need to nourish your body. That’s why it’s important to eat a well-balanced diet and to listen to your body when it tells you it needs specific nutrients.
The easiest way to feel better? Eat better. The food you eat has a huge impact on your mood, energy, and health. But it can be difficult to change your eating habits if you don’t know where to start.
