Eat healthy

IMG_5074

Hello everyone,

As the new year approaches, many people will make healthy eating habits a goal and this blog post is about guiding you through your healthy eating journey. I changed my eating habits as soon as I graduated college ( yay for me)  but you shouldn’t wait to start.

You can choose to use this list if you are moving back into your dorms or at home, It doesn’t matter. Use it as a grocery list and make the choices that suits you best.

A healthy habit to start, try drinking 8 cups of water (8-ounce glass) or more every day. That amount is recommended for everyone, but keep in mind that depending on your lifestyle, health and how active you are, the amount may vary. You should know that your body weight is 60 percent water and every system in it depends on water.
