There are several common barriers to eating healthy. Let’s check out 5 predominant reasons & how to overcome them!
Unavailable Healthy Food
If you live in a food desert, try to make healthy food selections at the grocery store to have healthy options at home.
If you find yourself going through the drive through try to pack a snack to keep healthy food on hand.
Out To Dinner
Before dining out review their menu online to know what healthy entrees are offered.
Short On Time
Sometimes life is busy and time is crunched. Planning snacks or stops for meals at healthy restaurants prevents unhealthy food decisions.
It can be confusing what’s best when reading nutrition labels. Labels that read low sodium, low fat, high protein, etc can be difficult to discern. Be mindful if a product is low fat there is typically added sugar, sodium or fat.
