Tips On Eating Healthy During The Holidays….

Living a Healthy Lifestyle, promoting Healthy Lifestyle…

The types of food we eat and the challenges for a healthy diet have changed significantly over the past 20 years. In particular we now know that added sugar is much more harmful to our health than we thought back then.

Get in the Habit of Meal Planning (and Prepping)

One way to seriously cut your grocery bill, even if you’re buying whole or fresh foods, is to get strategic about what you eat and when. Set aside a few hours at some point during the week to plan, shop for, and prep your meals for the week ahead.

In healthy family relationships, people trust and rely on each other for support, love, affection and warmth. Families often share common goals and work together to reach those goals (for example, children and young people may help their families get the dinner dishes done so that everyone can relax).

A healthy diet focuses on the five major food groups. The ‘daily serves’ tables on our Healthy eating page tell you how many serves you should be eating from each of these groups every day.

It’s not hard to include foods from the five food groups into snacks and meals.

Healthy Eating includes:
  • Eating lots of vegetables and fruit. This is one of the most important healthy diet habits.
  • Choosing whole grain foods.
  • Eating protein foods.
  • Limiting highly and ultra-processed foods.
  • Making water your drink of choice. Water supports health and promotes hydration without adding calories to the diet.

Consuming a healthy diet throughout the life-course helps to prevent malnutrition in all its forms as well as a range of noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) and conditions. However, increased production of processed foods, rapid urbanization and changing lifestyles have led to a shift in dietary patterns. People are now consuming more foods high in energy, fats, free sugars and salt/sodium, and many people do not eat enough fruit, vegetables and other dietary fibre such as whole grains.

The exact make-up of a diversified, balanced and healthy diet will vary depending on individual characteristics (e.g. age, gender, lifestyle and degree of physical activity), cultural context, locally available foods and dietary customs. However, the basic principles of what constitutes a healthy diet remain the same.

Don’t forget to wash your hands before and after eating, it is not because it’s now a health protocol, it should be our healthy habit.

Soaping up your hands may do more than just get rid of germs. It may scrub away the inner turmoil you feel right after being forced to make a choice between two appealing options.

That’s according to a new study on the psychological effects of hand washing in the journal Science. The study builds on past research into a phenomenon known as “the Macbeth effect.”
