4 hacks to help you eat better this week
Want to clean up your act for spring (and beyond)? Put these 6 simple hacks to the test.
1. EAT MORE NUTRIENT-DENSE FOODSNutrient-dense foods are those that have a lot of nutrients relative to the amount of kilojoules they contain. Maximise the nutrient density of your diet by choosing whole foods as close to their natural state as possible, including eggs, lean meats, oily fish, dairy, nuts and seeds.
4. EAT MORE FRESH FRUIT AND VEGIt’s common sense, but we’re telling you anyway. Vegetables are full of vitamins, minerals and fibre, which keeps you feeling full for longer. Enough said.
5. ALWAYS OPT FOR QUALITY INGREDIENTSBuy the best-quality ingredients you can afford, preferably organic meat, fruit and vegetables, and responsibly sourced.
6. UNSWEETEN YOUR DIETCut down on added sugars in your diet by limiting sodas, sweets and bakes. Also be smart about hidden sugars in products such as yoghurt, tomato sauce and cereals.
