Food is one of life’s most satisfying pleasures in life. Whether it’s a party, get-together, picnics, or any kind of celebration, food plays an essential role in every occasion. However, one should never forget that the primary purpose of food is to provide fuel to our body and enable both body and mind to function effectively.
Nowadays due to our hectic schedules and busy lifestyles, unhealthy eating habits have slowly become a part of our daily life! As a result, this can decrease energy levels, increase lethargy, and result in acidity or also weight gain. But don’t worry! Here are some simple and easy-to-follow tips to follow if you are an officegoer or have a super tight schedule!
Kickstart Your Metabolism with these foods!
Within an hour of waking up kick start your metabolism with a few nuts like almonds, or walnuts. Nuts are a good source of fiber, healthy fats and proteins. A fruit or a glass of coconut water are good options. You can also have a glass of buttermilk here which acts as a good probiotic to aid in digestion by regulating the PH balance.
Never Skip Your Breakfast
Skipping breakfast makes it harder to maintain stable blood sugar levels and the effective functioning of your body and brain during your busy mornings. You can easily grab a hard-boiled egg or a toast with peanut butter to give you the needful proteins and carbs.
Don’t Let Your Body Stay Hungry
One basic trick to winning with nutrition is to prevent yourself from getting too hungry. Eating every 2 hours ensures that your brain gets a regular flow of sugar thereby avoiding fatigue, mood swings, and sluggishness. Have regular mini meals during the day such as nuts, seeds, fruit or even a glass of buttermilk.

Remember To Keep Your Dinner Light
Many of us tend to view dinner as a comfort meal wherein we can afford to indulge since the other meals during the day have been compromises. But this is not the time to indulge but a time to be smart if you want to avoid health problems. Keep your dinner as light as possible. A smart way to eat your dinner would be veggies first, protein second and carbs last. Make sure your dinner is complete at least 2 hours before your bedtime and avoid desserts!
These are a few general healthy eating guidelines, but one size doesn’t fit all. The most important ingredient is your desire to eat right!
