With all of the information out there it can be hard to know where to start when it comes to eating healthier. Start by being a more mindful eater. That means paying attention to what you eat and how you eat on purpose. It’s about learning to use intuitive thinking and common sense to make choices versus relying on facts, data, and science.

Do you really think we get energy from an energy drink? No, that’s silly. We get energy from the sun, healthy food, daily movement, and sleep. Is adding butter to your coffee really the magic formula for better metabolism? Definitely not! Why not enjoy butter on something that is much more worth it? Isn’t coffee good as is--organic coffee that is! Do we really think that we can live without carbs the rest of our life? 

Why spend a fortune on processed whey protein powder when you can add a healthier plant based protein like hempseeds at $0.98 per serving?

Start to eat more mindfully, pay attention on purpose, read the ingredients, and be aware of how much and how often you indulge keeping in mind that you don’t get pleasure when you overdo things. It’s important to eat in a way that makes you feel healthy and happy.

Whatever behavior you choose, make sure that it can be maintained long-term. Don't go on a diet or join a new fancy gym if you can't stick with it.
