Quick Health Tips: A good health is no big deal. Small changes in your daily lifestyle can make huge improvements in your health. Don’t do a massive change, because it seems daunting. Just create simple routines that you can automatically follow. Below I put together of 50 healthy eating tips. 

 50 Easy Healthy Eating Tips

1. Drink more water!

2. And while you’re at it, quit drinking soda. It has absolutely no nutritional value. My husband promised himself he would quit drinking soda four years ago. And believe it or not, he’s never had a sip since. What a show-off, right? Lol! I will have a diet soda pop once in a while when we go to a restaurant, but that’s pretty much it.

3. Try sticking with water and milk. Don’t buy juice. I used to think it was healthy, but holy mama mia the sugar in juice is a little ridiculous.

4. Don’t eat while standing.

5. Or in front of the TV! {I’m a notorious mindless eater, so this is something I need to work on.}

6. Incorporate more protein into your diet. More protein will help keep you fuller longer.

7. Try eating a salad a day. {I’m going to be trying this!}

8. If you don’t like salad, try throwing a bunch of veggies into soup. It’s a different, but still delicious way to get a bunch of veggies into your diet.
 
9. Try satisfying your sweet tooth with fruit. Apples and all-natural peanut butter is one of my favorites.

10. Try natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup and agave instead of white sugar.
