Question: I'm probably as far away from eating healthy as possible. This is what I ate yesterday Breakfast: Nothing Lunch: Nothing Dinner: granola bar, chips, Chex mix, m&m, turkey and cheese (only) sandwich, rice crispy treats, pizza, cookies, fruit roll ups. That pretty much sums up my diet. I desperately need and want to eat some "real food" and stop eating all this junk. Please help! Longest answer gets best answer, any other answer will get a like

Hey! So I had the exact same problem but I have slowly managed to become healthiER (lol). So I don't know exactly what kind of stuff you'd like to eat, but what you really need to do is get inspired. Follow tons of amazing Instagram accounts of healthy mouth-watering food + recipes. Throw away your stashes of cookies and crisps and other unhealthy foods. Buy lots of fruit, vegetables, lean proteins, and try out home-made meals, new recipes - have fun with it! If you don't like the sound of "greens" and "whole grain" or "sprouted", then learn to trick yourself into thinking that the healthy food you're eating is really a yummy treat. Sorry this answer is quite vague, but I'm not sure what exactly you want to know and where you want to start but I just gave some random tips :) oh and you should always eat breakfast - even if it's something small, because that's the reason you're bingeing in the evening - try to spread your calories out during the day. Hope I helped (even slightly) haha x

Lots of fruits and vegetables but not to much meat Make sure you don't eat a whole lot but snack a bit(with healthy foods like bananas) throughout the day and make sure to eat 3 balanced meals a day. Do not eat right before bed and absolutely DO NOT skip breakfast!

you can have a healthy balanced diet as long as mostly the sugary sweets are eaten in moderation. if you want to eat healthy, then you should have some from each food group. eating fats sometimes doesn't even help gain weight it just helps to clog up the arteries. if you want to gain weight, i would suggest to eat proteins, because they help to build muscle and muscle weighs more than fat. *****Try getting protein from healthy choices instead of protein drinks.

You must eat breakfast. You are "breaking a fast" and need proper food to get a good start on your day. What you did eat is basically cr@p. I see no vegetables or fruits. Fruit "roll ups" are not fruit. Go to the grocery story and focus on the perimeter. That's typically where the "healthy" food is -- produce, dairy, and fresh meats and fish. Stay away from the inner aisles where the cookies and chips are.

These healthy recipes showcase some of the staples of vegetarian cuisine and provide tasty culinary inspiration and cooking tips for every veggie lover. Cooking Tips: Tofu or “soybean curd” is made by heating soy milk and a curdling agent in a process similar to dairy cheese making. Allowed to stand and thicken, the curds form silken tofu. When stirred and separated from the whey, the pressed curds, with their spongier texture, are known as “regular” tofu. The longer the pressing, the firmer and denser the tofu—soft, firm or extra-firm. Crumble and use instead of the meat in your favorite tuna or chicken salad recipe; dice and add to a vegetable stir-fry; add leftover silken tofu to smoothies. Edamame are fresh soybeans (also called “sweet beans”) that look like bright green lima beans and have a sweet and mild flavor. Edamame are easy to digest and are exceptionally high in protein (1⁄2 cup has 16 grams). You’ll most likely find frozen, partially cooked edamame—in pods or shelled—but fresh ones might turn up at farmers’ markets or natural-foods stores. Use the bean (the pods are inedible) in salads and tossed into stir-fries or soups. Quinoa, often referred to as a “superfood” for its many nutritional benefits, is a delicately flavored grain that was a staple in the ancient Incas’ diet. It is available in most natural-foods stores and many supermarkets. Toasting the grain before cooking enhances its flavor and rinsing removes any residue of saponin, quinoa’s natural, bitter protective covering. Tempeh is a chewy, nut-flavored soybean loaf (often combined with rice and millet) that has been allowed to ferment briefly. The grains are covered with a whitish mold, which is fully edible. Crumble a little into scrambled eggs, slice and sauté to make a veggie burger, or use like meat in stir-fries, stews or tomato sauce.

No mayo won't be a problem. But your husband is going to have to educate his taste buds if he wants to stay healthy. Now, you could get a double-boiler/steamer and use that to cook with. That means you won't need so many sauces for your food, and it's pretty easy to use. Often I've put rice and water in the bottom, then in the basket put my vegetables and meat- such as herbed chicken. Speaking of herbed chicken, I make that by coating the meat (with skin and fat removed) with salt, pepper, garlic, and oregano. Sometimes I will add something else, but not often. Or you can get a wok and start using olive oil to cook various stir-fries. If your husband decides to be difficult you could always give him the apron and tell him to cook: I would consider that attitude just a bit insulting myself. Good luck.
