I found this article titled “Three secrets to eating healthy” and I knew I needed to share it with you.

I try to eat healthy most of time time, but I’m always looking for ways to make it easier. Read on for some inspiration from the article.

The 3 secrets include making the healthy choices:
(1) Convenient
(2) Attractive
(3) Normal

Easy to remember because anyone CAN do it!

Below are a couple examples of how you can start to make good choices convenient, attractive and normal.

3 Simple Steps to Eating Healthy

1. Making healthy choices convenient may include having a bowl fruit, washed and ready to eat on the counter for a snack or food-on-the-go option.

2. We eat with our eyes, so it’s important to make the healthy food attractive. Small touches such as carving the watermelon rind into a pretty little bowl for serving a fruit salad increase people’s likelihood of reaching for that food.

3. To make the healthy options normal means to regularly include and offer the foods you want to eat more of. For example, instead of cheese and crackers before dinner, try sliced vegetables with hummus or ranch dressing.

Keeping these options in the house and reaching for them before the other snacks will help to make it less of a chore and more of a habit.
