These days, we’re all a little more conscious about what we eat. We want to make sure we’re feeding our families food that not only tastes good, but is healthy and contains as few artificial chemicals and preservatives as possible. But we’re all working on tight budgets, and organic food can be expensive. But there are plenty of other ways to eat healthy, natural foods without breaking the banks.
Eating Better, Eating Smart
Here are just a few of the ways you can start being more conscious about what you eat, how you prepare your food, and what to look for when planning out your everyday diet:
- Cook at home more. When you eat out, you never know exactly what you’re getting or how it’s been doctored with chemicals. You also have no way of controlling the fat content–many of your favorite restaurant dishes are loaded with butter, oil and other unhealthy fats. Cooking at home lets you choose the ingredients and the cooking method, and makes it easy to account for allergies or likes and dislikes.
- Read the labels. Do you really understand what’s in the food you eat? Ingredient labels can stretch a mile long these days, full of strange chemicals and preservatives. A good rule of thumb: if you can’t pronounce an ingredient, you probably don’t want it in your food.
- Eat less meat. This might be a difficult concept for the committed carnivore, but eating less meat is good for your waistline and can reduce unhealthy cholesterol. Regain the lost protein by eating healthy, plant-based forms of protein like nuts, tofu and yes, even beans.
