Just like the start of a new year is the perfect opportunity to set new goals for yourself, the start of spring is yet another chance to make some changes. After you’re done cleaning out your closet and dusting off your shelves, the next best thing to spring clean is your diet – after all, summer and beach season is right around the corner!
If you’re looking for ways to improve your diet and eat healthier, here’s how you can start to do so:
Clean Out Your Kitchen
If you want to stop snacking on cookies and candy, it would be pretty hard to do if they are right there in front of you. With that said, take some time to clean out your fridge and your kitchen cabinets so that you aren’t surrounded by unhealthy foods and refill with items such as fruits and vegetables.
Try New Foods
If you’re constantly eating the same foods, even if they’re healthy, it’s time to switch things up! Start by checking out our infographic featuring the best fruits and vegetables to eat in spring, and if you haven’t had any of them lately, add them to the list for your next shopping trip!
Reduce Liquid Calories
Although you might think of solid foods when it comes to calories, don’t forget that liquids such as soda contain a ton too. Knowing that drinks are a huge contributing factor to how many calories you take in each day, try reducing how much you consume and choose healthier options like water instead!
Avoid Salt and Sugar
In addition to aiming for healthier foods, also think about the individual ingredients you consume on a daily basis. Salt and sugar in particular are two that you should start to avoid, as they can take a negative toll on your body.
