Eat FIT, Be FIT: Simple Steps to A Healthier You

February 29, 2024

Achieving a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be complicated. Here are some useful tips provided by Eurest’s wellness and sustainability platform, Food with Purpose, that can help you implement a healthy Eat FIT and Be FIT lifestyle!


Plan Ahead for Busy, On-the-Go Days:

When life gets hectic, plan your meals in advance. Save time in the kitchen by prepping meals or grabbing convenient, hand-held options. Boost your energy and stay satisfied longer by including a protein source, including:

  1. Overnight oats with nut butter and chia or flax seed
  2. A salad with plant-based protein & extra vegetables &/or fruit!
  3. A Mediterranean wrap with lean protein, vegetables, olives and vinaigrette on a whole grain tortilla

Make Healthy Snacking a Habit:

Incorporate healthy snacks between meals to boost metabolism and maintain optimal blood sugar levels. Opt for snacks with a balance of carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and fiber.

Ideas include whipped cottage cheese with fruit, whole grain pancakes with eggs, energy balls (see recipe!), or vegetable sticks with hummus.

Keep Plants at the Center of Your Plate:

Prioritize plant-based foods, such as fiber-rich vegetables and whole grains. Starting with plant-based options can help regular blood glucose levels and ensure you get nutrient-dense foods.

Move Your Body Daily:

Integrate exercise and stretching into your daily routine. Whether it’s a walk, run, or weightlifting session, moving your body has numerous benefits, from stress reduction to improving overall health.
