There are many different things to consider when you are on a healthy diet. Not only do you need to watch what you eat, but exercising regularly is very important as well. A lot of people are discouraged from dieting due to not being able to consume their favorite foods. This will give you a few examples of foods that are not only great for your health, but taste good as well.
First off, fruit is a great alternative food that you can eat while on a diet. There are many to choose from which eliminates the redundancy factor that diets tend to scare people away. Oranges and grapefruits are great citrus treats that are high in vitamin C.
Some of my favorites are water melons, strawberries, and pineapples. If you do get sick of eating these everyday, get creative and make some mixed fruit juice combinations. Another great idea for a snack while eating healthy are granola bars.
Granola bars are extremely nutritious, not to mention, taste great. Even if you are having your children eat healthy, you will not have a problem getting them to eat a granola bar. The most appealing thing about them is that there are so many different flavors that at least one would appeal to most everyone. The different flavors, such as chocolate chip and apple pie, make it feel like you are cheating on your diet, but don’t worry they are extremely healthy.
The last food that I recommend when eating a healthy diet is baked potato chips. Everyone knows the saying “you can’t eat just one,” but if they are deep fried and full of fat, you can’t afford to eat more than one. With the baked chips, you reduce the fat and calories tremendously, as the chips still maintain the same great flavor that you are used to.
Another good thing is the potato chip companies still make most of the flavors in the baked chips that you would see in the regular chips. One thing to remember about dieting is that it doesn’t need to be a bad experience. There are many different foods that you can eat that will, not only keep you healthy, but “hit the spot” as well.
