(NAPSA) - Deciding to eat better does not have to be about denying yourself. Having more energy and staying healthier can be as easy as developing a few new habits. Here are a few tips to help:
Reduce, don't eliminate certain foods. If your favorite foods are high in fat, salt or sugar, moderate how much you eat of them and how often you eat them.
Make food decisions in advance. Plan your daily meals, drinks and snacks so you don't have to think about food all the time and keep having to make decisions about what to eat.
Eat slowly. Your appetite can be satisfied on less food by slowly savoring everything you eat. And wait before going back for seconds.
Try healthful new recipes. Include more brightly colored produce in your diet and add some heart-healthy salmon, with Omega-3s. Karo Syrup and Argo Corn Starch offer two new delicious recipes that don't require self-denial.
