When it comes to making healthy choices, the task can be daunting and extremely overwhelming, but with a few tips from top dietitians in the world, we can hold a few tricks up our sleeve to make wise choices when we visit the grocery store.


Make a plan for a day

Start the day with eating a protein-rich breakfast, including eggs, overnight oatmeal with nuts and fruit or have a slice avocado toast for a flavor-filled morning treat.

This will allow you to start with more energy and keep you on course for healthier choices during the day.

Throughout the day create choices filled with the following wise selections and alternatives to keep you on track for success.

It doesn’t matter the time of day, meal or snack reach for fresh fruit or veggies. Picking fresh fruit such as blueberries can pack as many as 15 types of phytonutrients into your daily regimen to protect your body from ailments and disease.

They will also pack your day with fiber, increase your vitamin A, C, and K intake and pack minerals such as magnesium, zinc, potassium, and calcium into your day.

Frozen fruit varieties

Frozen fruit

Don’t just stop at fresh fruit though, try mixing it up with frozen fruit varieties. These allow you to eat your favorite fruits year-round and can be for toppings on yogurt, and oatmeal, juiced or even turned into a healthy sugar-free jam.

One of my and my kid’s favorite choices is fruit popsicles. Not only tasty and robust they are a great replacement to the grocery store frozen varieties are packed with artificial colors and sugar.

When looking for dessert add a little orange blossom water and mint leaves to a bowl of mixed fruits for an extra kick of antioxidants and fiber.

Vegetables

Vagetables

Of course, the best dietitians agree consuming more vegetables is best for everyone. Make sure that you are getting the daily serving and trying out different types of vegetables.

Try adding:

  • red cabbage to leafy salads,
  • eat kale chips,
  • eggplant,
  • zucchini,
  • peas,
  • and green beans — mix presentation up for an added flare.

You can stew, roast or eat anything raw for different flavorings.

Avocados

Avacados

Avocados are one of the dietitians all-time favorite foods. Avocados are an excellent source with Vitamins K, C, B5, and B6 they also have a ton of minerals including potassium, which is GREAT after a workout for recovery and protects cells from any free radical damage.

Kale

Kale

Talking about superfoods, fresh kale, and kale chips are a distinctive way to increase vitamins A, C and K. Kale loads your body with essential minerals like calcium, iron, fiber, and potassium. It lowers LDL cholesterol, promotes digestion, and helps with eyesight.

Beans

Beans are also protein enriched ways to increase magnesium, potassium, zinc, and iron. It’s said that you cannot make a wrong choice with any bean.

Just make sure to boil them until foamy and drain them twice before cooking to reduce gas and bloating.
