Eating Healthily Doesn't Have To Be Boring—Here's Why

If you are trying to eat well but cannot stand the thought of munching on a carrot stick or drinking a glass of green juice, you have nothing to worry about. Now, it's easier than ever to start trying new foods that excite you. If you want to find out more, keep reading.

Shake up your yoghurt routine.

If you have yoghurt quite a lot, why not make it savoury? Instead of adding fruit or honey to your yoghurt, add some chopped cucumbers, tomatoes, olive oil, and even some red wine vinegar. You can pair this with some raw vegetables. If you want to opt for something a little different, you can try to make it dessert worthy. Add some peanut butter, cocoa powder, and a few oats. Remember, green tea doesn’t just have to go in your mug. Take some matcha powder and stir some of those great antioxidants right into your bowl. You will soon find that it's easier to get the result you are looking for.

Spice up your sandwiches.

If you are sick and tired of eating sandwiches, this is understandable. One way for you to work around this is to spread something richer on there. Opt for healthy fats, such as hummus, mashed avocado, and even some nut butter. You can also add some sliced almonds, walnuts, and cashews. These work well on a grilled chicken wrap, so make sure that you keep that in mind the next time you feel that you are dealing with a boring sandwich.

Add more flavour.

Sometimes, all you need to do is focus on adding a bit more flavour. You can turn up the heat by adding some cayenne pepper, some wasabi, or even hot sauce—this will make your dishes more interesting. Simple morning eggs can become way tastier, and you can add seasoning to your evening chicken breast if you want. Remember that diet food doesn’t have to be tasteless, and you can spice things up in no time.

Rediscover zest.

Why not add a bit of fresh lemon juice to your salads? Check out's fall salad collection if you want some more ideas. You can add some pomegranate champagne vinegar too, or some ginger rice vinegar. These are all valid options, and they work well with fish, too. If you want to make salads a bit more earthy, add some mixed mushrooms. Include shitake, oyster, and even portobello. This will give you a very nice tangy, woody flavour, and you'll be surprised at the difference it will make to your healthy eating regime. You can also add zest to your sandwiches, so make sure you keep some in the kitchen. Lemon works particularly well with mayonnaise.
