Prefer Whole Foods

Pick an easy to cook recipe and try it, add species and ingredients according to your taste. Make sure you avoid using any processed spices or ingredients.
Add Healthy Fats
You need to be a little smart to add the healthy fats to your diet. Simple addition and subtractions of food items can be a smart step. Eliminate generic vegetable oils and start using olive oil, coconut oil, and avocado oil when cooking. Fats help you absorb nutrients like Vitamins A, D, E, and K.

Limit Adding Sugar and Salt
Control over your sugar and salt intake is important even if you are a sweet lover and do not have any health issues at this point in time. This is especially for teenagers who love to have a glass of cold drink with their meals.
Health issues like high blood pressure and heart disease are often linked with excessive intake of sugar and salt in your diet.
On professional grounds, you should only eat 6 to 8 spoons of sugar per day only if you are not a sugar patient. On the other hand, the salt daily intake should not be more than 2,300 mg. Although there are sugar and salt in everything you eat, adding junk food items like cold drinks and burgers on a daily basis is not recommended.
In addition to this, you should add hygienic good methods where you take care of little thighs like clean the vegetables and pulses before cooking, keep the kitchen area clean, and even the utensils.
General people think that only the boiled food with no additional flavors of spices is a healthy choice. This is not true, each flavor is important and a dietician should be the first person of contact when it comes to deciding a diet plan for you.
Thomas N Salzano says hygiene is directly connected to healthy food eating habits so never compromise with the hygiene part.
