Healthy eating 2023 — keep it simply

We’re approaching mid-February, usually the time of year all those positive New Year’s resolutions start to fade away. How many of you promised to eat healthier this year, making all sorts of elaborate plans on how you’d do that? And now?

Put the trimmed broccoli in the steamer basket, cover and set the timer to the recommended cooking time.
Want to eat healthier? Start with small steps, like steaming more veggies for nightly meals.

Maybe you went about it all wrong, reports the Washington Post. “The science of building healthy habits consistently shows that the easier we make something, the more likely we are to succeed,” notes this Post piece. Why do we overthink our plans?

“There’s a value we place in our society in exerting self-control and being in charge,” Wendy Wood, a research psychologist at the University of Southern California and author of “Good Habits, Bad Habits,” told the Post.  “Sometimes the easier something feels, it feels like you’re less in control, and it’s less appealing somehow.’’

Some advice for taking the simple approach:

“The less time you are required to spend on a healthy behavior, the better. Instead of training for a marathon, start by training for a 5K race. If you want to start cooking at home more, choose 15-minute meals, pre-chopped vegetables and fast-cooking tools like an air fryer,” the article reports

So if you’re searching for an easier path, try these. Good luck.
