SIMPLE Ways to Eat Fresh
Last week we discussed ways to be healthy by getting up and moving around. Have you ever noticed that Amish families are outside a lot more? 🙂 We can also learn simpler ways of eating fresh from studying what the Amish do.
- BUY less pre-packaged food. For instance, if you have the choice between apple sauce or apples, go with apples. The closer to the natural source you can go, the better.
- VISIT your local farmers’ market. Almost every town has a place where local farmers sell their veggies. We have a small corner shop that carries fresh produce. Also on Saturday mornings, you can go down to the courthouse square and there will be several folks with tables set up.
- COOK simpler meals. Sometimes when I think of cooking, I get tired and want to go to Sonic. There’s nothing wrong with the occasional burger, but I can also simplify what I’m cooking. Fresh sandwiches and a salad are wonderful this time of year. I also love to eat breakfast for dinner. It’s full of protein and easy to cook–especially when I add a side of mixed fruit.
- EAT OUT less. I do love eating out. It’s such a treat. But I almost never order healthy when I eat out. I don’t know why! I intend to, and then something catches my eye which is deep fried. Maybe it’s because I live in the south. The less that I eat out, the healthier my meal choices are.
These are pretty simple ideas, but I think we can all benefit from them. What do you do to make good eating choices?
