Healthy Living Part 2
Though it may seem like exercise is the most important part of a healthy lifestyle, what you eat is better than what you do. In this week’s Stoney Ridge Apartments Blog, we have a few ways you can get into healthy eating before the summer ends here in Austin, TX.
Fruits and Vegetables
Take advantage of the variety of fruits and vegetables offered at your local grocery store. Fruits and vegetables are a great way for your body to get the nutrients it needs to supplement your workouts, with the added benefit of being delicious. Try to find recipes that incorporate vegetables in unique ways and try to diversify the type you eat. Check out these 27 delicious things you can do to vegetables.
Instead of going out for that quick meal, consider taking the time to make food at home. When you make your own meals, you have control over what goes in and how you make it. Fast food options are quicker and easier, but if healthy eating is your goal...stay away from them! Fast food establishments are designed to be quick, not to be healthy. You’ll also feel accomplished when you end up making a meal that’s delicious!
Quality Over Quantity
The food you eat can be the deciding factor between getting results or not. Many people who start exercising maintain the same eating habits. Then, they end up wondering why they aren’t seeing results! With healthy eating, quality over quantity is the way you want to approach it. Eat more fruits and vegetables and start being conscious of your meat intake.
