While stocking up your refrigerator and shelves, keep the healthier items in the front. If you lay your eyes on them first, chances are you will pick them right away before looking around for more.
Sleep has a direct correlation with our diet, so include some sleep-inducing foods in your dinner. Milk, almonds, lettuce and bananas are not only healthy but are also known to help you sleep better and make you feel more relaxed when you wake up the next day.
If possible, plan the menu for the coming week in advance, so you can use the weekend to shop and make sure you have everything you need. This prevents you from running out of food and reduces your chances of eating out or resorting to unhealthy quick fixes.
Keep energy boosters like fresh fruits, nuts, dark chocolates and energy bars handy, both at work and at home, to take care of the dreaded slump that grips you in the middle of the day or when you stay up late in the night.
Control your caffeine and sugar intake. Both are quick fixes that give you a temporary boost of energy, but wear you down eventually, making you feel lazy and lethargic. So, the next time you have a sweet craving, opt for a fruit, dates or a healthy smoothie.
