Feels Like Home: 3 Steps to Eating Well at Home
By Julie Montagu, The Flexi Foodie, http://www.juliemontagu.com
Eating well at home is a concept that many people over-complicate due to the endless amounts of health and dietary advice in existence. Getting back to basics is undoubtedly the best way to dramatically improve your eating habits and get on track to optimum health and wellbeing.
Maintaining a healthy, happy atmosphere in the home is a brilliant way to motivate yourself and your family to fill the kitchen cupboards with nothing but goodness. This is one of the core concepts of the COTTON USA & Christy ‘Feels Like Home’ Campaign of 2016. Here are my top 3 tips for eating well at home.
1) Go Organic
Shopping organic is a good way to eradicate harmful pesticides from your home and your dinner table. Pesticides are used during the production of many foods but can actually disrupt your hormones and cause ill-health. Growing your own food is arguably the best way to be sure that you are avoiding pesticides, but opting for organically grown produce will also keep these harmful chemicals at bay.
2) Be Natural
Removing all packaged and processed foods from your shopping list is an incredibly positive step towards always eating well at home. These foods can contain incredibly high amounts of fat, calories and additives, and not a lot of the good stuff! Opt instead for a wide variety of plant-based foods and natural whole grain products. In doing so, you will flood your home and your body with healthy, antioxidant rich foods that will boost your overall wellbeing.
3) Get Together
Bringing your family together every night for a meal is a great way to encourage healthy eating habits in the home. Many people find that they have much more motivation to cook a deliciously nutritious meal when they are going to be sharing it with their loved ones. Gathering around the table to eat dinner is also the perfect way for the whole family to unwind after a busy day.
As you can see, eating well at home is simple and effortless when you indulge in a little forward planning. By making slight alterations to your existing routine and choices you can quickly create a healthier, happier home!
