Questions for Healthy Meals
First and foremost, ask yourself what you want. Often, we just run blindly, following our unhealthy cravings, caring little about ourselves and our health. Therefore, you are to ask yourself whether you really desire to eat unhealthy food and risk your health for the sugary and synthetic tastes this false junk food will provide you with. In 99% of the cases, you will realize that this is not what you want. Once you have decided to eat healthy, do not turn back to your old habits. Rather, think about the tastes you want to feel and choose healthy and natural sources of these, putting them on a plate.
“What do I need” is the next question you need to place in front of your way to the fridge. Think about what your body needs, in terms of nutrients and balance, as well as quantity. Then, choose something healthy, with a lot of variety. Experiment with different recipes and provide yourself with the best food, meeting your bodily requirements perfectly.
Finally, the last question you need to bear in mind is what you have. Once you feel hunger, do not rush to the first junk food restaurant or a vending machine, opting for the most unhealthy choices of all. Choose healthy alternatives, reminding yourself that you need something light, refreshing and tasty. Thus, choose a nice frozen yogurt over an ice-cream, eating a healthier alternative and feeling happy subsequently. Always be economic, seek food which will make you full with the smallest quantity, opting for nothing less than natural and healthy.
