Good health habits are generally slow to develop. And it takes a lot of effort to keep stay the course for the long journey. After the bariatric diet ends, we try various other diets and exercise routines. Yet still we seek that magical combination of what is both enjoyable and easy to stick with.
And that’s precisely why we need to make eating healthy diets a lot simpler! We should be able to eat healthy — whether its a 5 minute lunch break at work or a relaxing dinner at home.
Let’s face it, we lead busy lives. And likely we must remedy a few health conditions after bariatric surgery and massive weight loss. So our diets should support our lifestyles rather than work against them.
Tasty Fruits You Can Pick At
Fruits can be very tasty when you’ve got the right ones on your plate, and by that we mean it’s time to pick up those punnets of grapes and/or strawberries you love from the store. You can eat these slowly and over time, picking at them as and when you feel like it, and still get quite a few health benefits out of them. Plus, they’re easy to get down, and unless you have an allergy, nothing can really go wrong in your stomach after you’ve consumed them.
Squeeze a Smoothie Together
Smoothies can be lovely to sip on through a straw, and they can be just as fun to make as well. Because smoothies are very much experimental foods, and you can throw all kinds of fruits, yogurts, milks, and other substances into a blender and let it do its thing. Go out and buy some dairy products, and pick up the fruits and/or vegetables you love, and mix together a smoothie you’ll be known for one day!
You can also turn to juicing, as there are plenty of juicing recipes online for you to make use of. Cold pressing juices make sure you squeeze out all of the juice into the mixture, and there’s no pulp or foam to get in the way of downing something nice and healthy! Plus, juices are very easy to swallow, and are good for settling stomachs too.
Throw Some Garlic and Onions in a Pan
And finally, make sure you’re cooking up a storm in the evening, by throwing a bit of butter, as well as some garlic and onion into a pan, and really giving yourself a healthy food base to work off of. All kinds of products can be thrown in alongside, such as noodles, pasta, lean meats, and other vegetables, and you’ll have something tasty and healthy to dig into after work or in front of the telly.
There are a lot of gentle foods out there, that you can use to have a tasty and light meal that settles your stomach, that also carry a real health punch that your body needs. So, make sure you keep these tips in mind.
