How to eat yourself fit and fabulous!

Posted on
Every Bohemian Mama worth her Rosarito fringed maxi dress, knows that food can be deliciously nice and also a bit naughty. But did you know, keeping a healthy lifestyle and diet can be just as important as genes in helping you to lead a long, healthy and fulfilling life? Poor attention to your diet can decrease your ability to fight off infections such as cold and flu and even contribute to more serious health defects such as osteoporosis, heart disease and diabetes. Eek! By adopting simple but oh-so-sensible diet and exercise habits, you can enjoy the rewards of a longer, healthier life. Follow our top ten tips and you’ll be in great shape in no time!
  1. Eat more whole foods, less processed
The more natural, unprocessed foods you include in your diet, the better. Fill your plate with fruits, vegetables, pulses and salad to boost your nutrient levels and your energy.  
  1. Eat little and often
Many dietitians say that the secret to a fit, lean body is not to eat less, but to eat little and often. Instead of three large meals, try five smaller meals spread evenly throughout the day. Never, ever skip breakfast, even if you’re a super busy mama!  
  1. Eat foods that boost your metabolism naturally
Lean meat, eggs, chilli peppers, green tea, ginger, garlic, apples and coffee (in moderation) can all help to give your metabolism a quick boost.  
  1. Eat a rainbow of fruit and vegetables
Different fruits and vegetables contain different combinations of vitamins and minerals, so to ensure you’re getting a truly balanced diet don’t stick to just one or two colours. Eat your greens, reds, yellows, oranges, blues and even purples to stay strong and healthy.  
  1. Eat more fish
A 'Mediterranean' style diet rich in fish has been proven again and again to optimise health and body wellbeing. Aim to eat at least two portions of fish a week and ensure at least one portion is oily. Oily fish, such as salmon, fresh tuna, sardines, and mackerel are one of the only natural food sources of Vitamin D – the ‘sunshine’ vitamin.  
  1. Cut back on salt
Too much salt in your diet can increase your risk of high blood pressure, check food labels for salt content and try not add salt when you’re whipping up a family feast.
