Moderation Is Key

Healthy eating should be top of everyone’s lifestyle list and the key to eating well is moderation. If you eat or drink to excess, it’ll lead to weight gain and long-term health issues. Moderation is the key to healthy eating, that means yes you can have a little piece of dessert just not the whole entire cake.

Feeling Fruity?

Eating five portions of fruit and veg each day is recommended for anyone striving to lead a balanced and healthy lifestyle. They contain a multitude of vitamins and minerals, as well as plenty of fiber. Fruit and veg will leave you feeling energized and as nature’s secret antioxidants, they can help protect you against heart disease and diabetes. Fruit and veg should always be your go-to snack when you’re feeling peckish.

Cut Out The Processed Carbs!

Carbohydrates are essential for our body’s well-functioning but most of us eat far too many of them and the wrong sort! Refined carbs, such as whit potatoes, white bread, white rice, and white pasta often lack fiber and contain refined starches which increases your blood sugar level.  Remember! Higher fiber or wholegrain varieties of complex carbs included brown rice, sweet potatoes, wholegrain bread are always so much better. Carbs give us energy, but it’s important to chose the right type of carbohydrates.

Sugar Isn’t Always Sweet

A diet high in added sugars can lead to obesity and other chronic disease. Fizzy drinks, cakes, biscuits, sweets, chocolates, pastries, and pudding can all help pile on the pounds and lead to diabetes. Check food labels to see what products contain high amounts of sugar, and if you have a sweet tooth, why not indulge in some apples or strawberries instead?

Put A Halt To The Salt

Too much salt in your diet can lead to elevated blood pressure which puts you more at risk of heart issues. It’s recommended that adults eat no more than 6g a day. Added salt is in a lot of food products, so buyers beware. Healthy Crunch has the additional distinction of being a woman-owned-and-operated business that won Bednarski the 2018 Star Women in Grocery Award. They believe in a healthy diet and paying close attention to what you are consuming because, at the end of the day, you are what you eat.
