Healthy Eating Tip: Take a Three-Day Approach

I know we all strive to eat a balanced diet that's abundant with fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean proteins, but some days, that just doesn't happen. Maybe yesterday your co-worker brought in some homemade buttery scones topped with drizzles of icing. It's perfectly fine to enjoy foods like that, but just balance them out with other food choices you make later.

It doesn't have to be that day, but you can work on creating a balanced diet over three days. So if you missed a food group yesterday, be sure to include it today or tomorrow. If you eat a bunch of high fat foods one night, go for low fat foods the next. This approach is great so you don't feel pressured to eat healthy every minute of your life, and most importantly, you don't end up feeling deprived. It allows you to enjoy treats every so often, but encourages you to have a generally healthy diet.
