Every year most people set an infinity of goals; however, how many of these do we really fulfill? We want to share with you some simple tips to start where it counts, from the inside.

The last two years, our lives have taken many turns; We have changed jobs, lifestyle, staying at home instead of going to the office, for a while we stopped doing the activities we used to do, going to the gym, taking those pole or Zumba classes, going out dancing ... Countless things have changed, and we with them. Even our way of eating changed, many people ate more junk food due to anxiety or stress.

Start small

The ideal is not to change your diet overnight, because according to experts, that is what makes us fail in our goals. In exchange, you should begin to reduce and substitute foods that are not so healthy for others that are rich in flavor and nutrients.

For example, instead of eating potato chips, choose low-sugar fruits, such as cucumber; there is nothing fresher and more filling than a sliced ​​cucumber with salt and lemon, and if you prefer, with sauce or chili powder; it can also be a mix of nuts and dried fruits, or even a handful of pistachios or your favorite seeds. Or, instead of having bread for dinner, have a low-oil stew or a bowl of grains and vegetables for dinner. It can still be bread, however, swap the panettone for a couple of baguette slices with avocado, grains of sea salt, pepper, and sesame. A delight!

Add legumes and green leaves

While meats of any kind are not the best choice due to the carcinogens, hormones and fats they contain, excellent sources of protein can be found in legumes, such as beans, peanuts, lentils or peas or in nuts and seeds, such as pecans, almonds, cashews, sesame, among others.

Even green leaves are important; Let's start with the sprouts, which contain up to 40 times more nutrients than their mature versions. Still, larger leaves like kale, spinach or different types of lettuce are essential in your diet; they have many vitamins, minerals and fibers necessary for good digestion.

Eat the rainbow

The more colors your dishes have, the better! Consuming foods that vary in color is also varying their nutrients and having a more complete diet; In addition to each element being different, remember that spices also count; turmeric, cinnamon, cumin, chili peppers and many more.

Another thing that all health professionals never tire of repeating is that we drink a lot of water. We understand that many people are bored with plain water or simply don't like it, but we can also make our daily drink richer, using for example hibiscus flower, tamarind, lemonade with ginger, chia or cucumber... In short: the options are endless.

And if you get hungry during the day, don't forget to have a healthy snack on hand; They can be nuts, dried fruits, jicama or chopped cucumber, among others. The ideal is to avoid fats, flours and processed foods as much as possible.
