Healthy Eating Habits

101 tips and tricks to develop healthier eating habits to jump-start your own efforts.
Keep a variety of unsalted nuts on hand: walnuts, almonds, peanut, pine nuts, cashews, hazelnuts. Stored in the freezer, they will keep up to a year, and are amazingly versatile in all types of recipes.

Spice things up! Add red pepper flakes, chopped jalapenos, garlic, hot sauce, or cayenne to your dishes if you like. Full-flavored food is often more satisfying and can help prevent overeating.

Try using low-sodium chicken or vegetable stock (or homemade) in place of water when cooking rice, bulgur, couscous, farro, barley, and other whole grains. It adds a lot of low-calorie flavor.

Share an appetizer, entree, and dessert with your dining companion. Savor all the elements of a quality meal while keeping calories in check.

Keep a variety of no-added-sugar dried fruit on hand for when your bananas have entered banana-bread stage. Dried fruit packs more calories than the same amounts of fresh, so keep portions to a small handful.

Tired of apples and oranges but love their portablity? At the beginning of the week, take 5 minutes to cut up some exotic fruits: mangoes, pineapple, and kiwifruit, with a spash of lime juice to prevent browning. Put in a large container and take to work for afternoon snacks for the entire week.

Keep several bags of frozen veggies on hand at all times at home (add to any recipe!) and at work (a bowl of microwaved peas and corn is an easy, fiber-filled snack). Frozen veggies may have even more nutrients than fresh ones out of season, as they are frozen at their peak ripeness.

Add healthy whole grains to a salad by making your own whole grain croutons. Click here for a recipe!

If you eat eggs on a regular basis, consider switching to egg whites for extra protein and less fat. Scrambling them with salsa, hot sauce, or a spoonful of olive tapenade is a great way to add flavor.

Load up your baked potatoes, eggs, soups, and beans with fresh or jarred salsa. It's a great way to add flavor and lots of extra veggies.
