Back in college when I started by food journey, I actually believed I was being healthy based solely on the fact that I was cooking. I had no real concern of the ingredients that I was using in my meals – some of those ingredients would be processed and the rest just produce from my grocery store. As I learned more about food and how we should use it to fuel and heal our bodies and not just FEED our bodies, it became apparent that the ingredients we use when cook are just as important. Real food is the key with minimal processed foods. They are the foundation – the building blocks to any healthy meal. I know when you are trying eat healthier it can be quite overwhelming, there are tons of questions –
- Where do I start?
- What do I buy?
- How do I know if this is good for me?
The list can go on and on, but it doesn’t have to. Through my journey, I have learned that change doesn’t have to be overwhelming you just need a starting point. Here are 8 simple changes that you can make to help get you started – and you don’t have to do this all overnight.
