1. Eat a Variety of Foods

Our bodies need a variety of nutrients to thrive. Eating a variety of healthy foods will make sure that your body gets all the nutrients it needs.

2. Balance Your Macros

There are three macronutrients your body needs: carbs, fat, and protein. Your body needs all three of these to thrive. They’re all important. So strive to eat meals and snacks that give you a good balance of all three.

3. Redefine Your Food

One of the most beneficial healthy eating guidelines I’ve done is to redefine my food. This has also been very crucial in helping my kids learn how to eat healthy, too.

4. Drink Water

I cannot stress enough how important drinking water is to healthy eating. You can only last three days without water. It is the most important nutrient you can put in your body. Your body is 70% water. You need it.

BONUS: No Junk Food

Now, now. Hear me out. I’ve read a lot about healthy eating over the years. And every time an article said “No Processed Foods,” I would just skip on by to the next section.

Conclusion: You Can Do It!

Eating healthy doesn’t have to be hard or restrictive. But it can be challenging if you’ve gone your whole life not knowing how to eat healthy.
