The team at USHEALTH Advisors recently shared ideas about how healthy eating can be a fun thing to do. It takes savvy shopping to find healthy things to buy at the grocery store. Many packaged foods are chock full of sodium, added sugar, preservatives, and other ingredients that are bad for you. Your best bet is to mostly stick to the edges of the store where you can find produce, unprocessed meat, and dairy.
You don’t have to live a life of boring food just because you want to eat more healthy. People wonder if the occasional “cheat meal” is ok and whether it’s better to watch what they eat or to get more exercise in order to achieve the results they’re looking for.

Stanford University did a study that found that eating better and doing more exercise is going to provide people with the most benefits, USHEALTH Advisors shared. The nutrition side of this equation is the easier one to manage for many people. The goal is to create healthy meals that the whole family will enjoy.
Making dinner using healthy ingredients does take more time than throwing a frozen dinner in the microwave. It’s well worth the time, though, and there are simple options, like spicy turkey chili, that don’t take that much time to cook. In the USHEALTH Advisors recipe, they include hot peppers because they have been shown to speed up metabolism by up to 5%. They also help to lower blood pressure.
Pizza is usually very unhealthy as it has tons of sodium and saturated fat. This includes pizza from the grocery store or from a local pizza joint. It doesn’t have to be this way. USHEALTH Advisors has a Living Good Health blog where they share the recipe for a very nutritious pizza without all the bad stuff.
