5 Healthy Eating Habits

5 Healthy Eating Habits

There are a lot of reasons Americans don't eat healthily. Sometimes, takeout or fast food is the most convenient option. Other people may simply grab snacks from the vending machine throughout their day. Portion size is also another reason people don't eat right. With obesity and poor nutrition being a problem, let's take a look at how a meal prep delivery kit from CG Meals can help you eat right.

1. Eat the Portion Size

Many people fall victim to "portion distortion." This is our perception of portion size. For example, when we make an 8-ounce steak at home, we often don't realize that there are just over two serving sizes of steak (the typical serving size of steak is about 3 ounces). One of the ways that CG Meals meal kits will help is that all of your food comes in the correct portion size, minimizing the temptation to overeat.

2. Take Your Time and Enjoy Your Meal

One of the ways that you can avoid bloating and discomfort after eating is to eat your food slowly. We are often rushed in the evening or during our lunch shift at work. Meal kits from CG Meals are ready in 10 minutes of boiling in water or a few minutes in the microwave. With a minimal amount of prep and clean-up time, CG Meals makes it so that you have time to enjoy your meal.

3. Add More Vegetables to Your Diet

Most people don't eat enough vegetables. At CG Meals, you can get a vegetable side to go with your meals. Vegetables are an important source of potassium, dietary fiber, folate, vitamin A, and vitamin C. Fruits and vegetables play an important role in preventing cardiovascular disease, lowering your blood pressure, and reducing the likelihood of diabetes.

4. Get Enough Protein

Protein is an essential macronutrient that helps with tissue repair, cell growth, and maintenance. It's important to get enough protein, and your meal kit from CG Meals will have the exact amount that you need. The recommended dietary allowance for protein is 0.36 grams per pound of body weight (or about 56 grams per day for a moderately active adult).

5. Balance Your Meals

It's important to have a balance of carbohydrates, fats, and proteins at each meal. This will help to keep your blood sugar levels stable and give you sustained energy throughout the day. Meal kits from CG Meals are prepared by a chef to have the perfect balance of macronutrients so that you can be sure you're getting a healthy, balanced meal.

Eating healthy doesn't have to be difficult. With CG Meals, you can get everything you need for a healthy, balanced meal delivered right to your door. With a wide variety of different dishes to choose from, there is plenty of variety to enjoy something different each night. Most importantly, you can eat healthily and not worry about whether or not you are getting the right amount of vitamins and minerals. All of our meals are ready in ten minutes and are delivered fresh from our chef's kitchen.
