According to a new survey, nearly all American women (92 percent) report that they are trying to bring better food choices into their homes, yet two-thirds agree that they sometimes find it difficult to introduce more wholesome foods into their diet and their familys diet. Additionally, the majority of women (88 percent) agree that they wish there were more on-the-go wholesome food options out there. Dont Judge a Food By Its Cover! The survey also revealed that 57 percent of women report that they read the nutritional label frequently when shopping for food. Yet, its not just the fat and calorie content that can be important when it comes to making food choices. The ingredient list tells a more complete story by revealing what’s in the food we eat. Only two out of five women surveyed say they frequently read the ingredients lists in the foods they eat, with one-third reporting that they determine the wholesome value of a product by looking at the front of the package. Andrea Beaman can provide three easy tips to help you get on the wholesome track: Understand your food. Read the ingredients list on the packaging, not just the nutrition facts. The more you know about the foods you’re consuming, the more informed choices you can make. Get back to basics. Choose foods with pure, simple ingredients. Select fresh foods such as fruits and vegetables when theyre in season and have the most satisfying taste and texture. Take it slow. Switching to a simple, wholesome diet doesnt have to happen overnight. Set easily attainable goals and begin by making small changes in your food choices over time.
