What To Do To Get Healthy The Simple Way

Here We Go…

Inquisitive health-seeker asks: “What should I do to get more healthy?”

Internet responds: “You need to do these 101 things every single day of your life so you don’t die tomorrow from living an unhealthy lifestyle. Number 1 is…”

Inquisitive health-seeker turns around crying, ready to run away because that answer SUCKED.

OK, I added that middle section about dying tomorrow, but seriously, check out the search results for “what to do to get healthy”…

AHHHHHHHH, stop it!!! Are you kidding me!?!?

Come on, just look at that last one!

Let’s be honest, the Internet is amazing and can teach you anything you would ever want to know, including how to ride a unicycle while balancing a red ball on your nose like a seal, but…

When it comes to health: the Internet is a jungle.

And that’s putting it politely considering the sheer amount of tips, tricks, and top 1,000 lists floating around out there.

I’m getting a panic attack just looking at “The 101 Best Things to Do for Your Body Now!”

That kind of stuff makes me want to lock all my doors and just sit in my room crying. All. Day.

It’s overwhelming, de-motivational, and completely unnecessary.

The truth is that you don’t have to carry around a list in your pocket of the 101 things you have to do today (or else risk dying from a lack of health) like a lot of articles on the Internet might lead you to believe.

It’s a lot more simple than that as long as you have the right lens to decide between healthy and unhealthy choices.

Making Healthy Eating Quick And Tasty

The perception of eating healthy is that it is time-consuming, expensive, and tastes bland.

But, by now, you already understand why you should eat healthy, including to save time, money, and enjoy food more, and are already starting to build a convenient foundation for your own, personalized eating style.

The next step could be to start talking about macro-nutrients, micro-nutrients, calories and grams of nutrients needed for your body, glycemic load, optimal meal timing, etc.

But, the majority of people just want to eat healthy, feel good, and live fulfilled lives for it; most people don’t want or need to follow a meal plan, weigh and pack all their food, and eat at non-negotiable times during the day (if you are looking for that kind of structure and quantification, contact me to build it into your lifestyle together).

SO, as requested, let’s lay out painfully simple and amazingly healthy 5 minute meals!

Meals that take practically no time to make, use basic ingredients that are low in cost, but high in health, and taste delicious to you, since you will be putting them together according to your own taste buds.

Eleven meals, 5 minutes each, 9 not even requiring a pan: LET’S GO!

Before we evolve your eating habits to keep pushing you to higher levels of health, with ease, let’s recap how much you have accomplished so far:
