Eating healthy is on most people’s to-do list, and if it’s on yours, you’re probably looking for ways that you can implement this task without too much fuss. The following is a list of great healthy eating ideas that you can implement this very week!
Participate in meatless Monday.
You don’t have to be a complete vegetarian or vegan to swap out meat in some of your meals. For many people, meatless Monday is a weekly event. This Monday, try making your own veggie burgers at home. There are tons of recipes on the Internet that you can use for tasty burgers that almost seem like the real thing.
Store your greens for longer and save money while eating healthier throughout the week.
Many people end up throwing out baby spinach and spring greens after a few days in the fridge because they become wilted and smelly. But did you know that there’s a way to can store your greens for longer and save money? All you need to do is put a clean paper towel into the container where you store your baby greens and spinach. This will help them to stay dry and avoid the accumulation of moisture. Excess moisture is what will cause your greens to wilt early and become bad. This means you’ll be able to enjoy salads throughout the week instead of having to scarf down your greens all at once.
Make a healthy salad dressing for delicious salads.
Finally, consider swapping out your store brought bought salad dressing for something a little better and homemade. A great Caesar dressing can be made with ingredients you probably already have in your refrigerator and kitchen cupboards. You’ll need a cup of ground Parmesan cheese, a half cup of Greek yogurt, 2 tablespoons of olive oil, one clove of garlic, 1 teaspoon of Dijon mustard, a touch of lemon zest and 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar. Mix everything together and add salt to taste.
Use all of the tips listed above to change this week into a healthy eating week. You’ll love it so much that you’ll want to do it the following week as well!
