What does healthy eating mean to you?
Before we jump into 3 ways to get back on track, think about what healthy eating actually means to you. There are the basics that we have all heard before — eating a wide variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, beans and legumes, ancient grains, nuts and seeds. But then again, some people like to stay away from grains. Some individuals choose to eat meat while others prefer a plant-based lifestyle. This is why nutrition should always take an individualized approach!
Regardless of if you follow a well-established diet (like Paleo, Keto or Vegan) or have a more relaxed approach, these tips can inspire you to get back to what healthy eating means to you.
