      Baby Step Your Way To Healthier Eating

       



      As busy moms we all want to provide healthy meals for our families. But sometimes we get so overwhelmed that by the time we hit the kitchen, we're too stressed to think about changing our habits for the better. Setting a goal is great, but without a plan of action, it's not going to happen. A plan can help you to meet your goal of eating healthier and won't overwhelm you.

      The following are some tips to help you baby step your way to a healthier diet:

      Get out of your rut. Many times, we all decide we can't stick to an eating plan because it limits us to certain foods or cuts out entire food groups, like carbohydrates or dairy products. Many diets are set up this way, but eating healthy doesn't mean you have to go on a restricted diet. There is so much variety among fruits, vegetables, whole grains and nuts. Try a new food like kefir or miso soup, or a new recipe from a healthy cookbook. You never know if you'll find a new food you and your family will love.

      Make it easier on yourself. Take advantage of cookbooks, ready to use foods, and meal planning options that you can find online to help you to create a plan that works for you. Don't try to figure out what to cook for dinner when you're starving, because your body will be crying out for sugar at that time. Be proactive and have a plan, and stock your pantry and fridge with healthier options.

      Start with just one meal. Choosing one meal at a time to improve will help you stay focused and not feel overwhelmed. This does not mean you should eat junk or fast food the rest of the day, but focusing on one meal at a time can make the step to healthier eating a little easier. As an example, switch from cold breakfast cereals that may be high in sugars to a cooked whole grain like oatmeal, or even a yummy fruit salad for breakfast.

      Taking each of these steps one at a time could really help to launch you onto a plan that will work for you. Remember it does not have to be difficult - and taking baby steps means the changes are more likely to stick!
