How to Stop Eating Junk Food: 10 Tips
The Healthy Foods We Can't Stop Eating (and Don't Have to!)
With new food studies coming out all the time, it's hard to tell which areactuallyhealthy and which are junk foods in disguise. Take a break from reading labels and nibble one of these tasty, 100% good-for-you foods.
Breakfast:1/2 cup oatmeal or 3/4 cup whole-grain cereal (instead of refined cereal, like cornflakes). Look for one with at least 5 grams of fiber per serving.
Lunch:A sandwich with whole wheat bread (instead of white bread) and 3 cups of light microwave popcorn (instead of chips).
Dinner:Brown rice or whole wheat pasta (instead of white rice and regular pasta).
Strawberries.These pretty berries are among the most antioxidant-rich fruits out there, so they've got major cancer-fighting potential, says Chicago-based registered dietitian David Grotto. A serving of eight strawberries contains only 50 calories but has 160 percent of your daily vitamin C and three grams of fiber. If you can spring for it, opt for organic — conventionally grown berries can have high levels of pesticide residue, according to the Environmental Working Group. Leave the caps on and wait to wash them until right before serving, for freshness, then eat them any which way. Our faves: in a spinach salad with walnuts and feta, layered with peanut butter instead of jelly on a sandwich, or drizzled with balsamic vinegar for a low-cal snack or dessert.
Kind Bars.At first glance, these seem too healthy to be tasty — they're all-natural, gluten-free, and low in sodium — but our staffers were such insta-fans that our entire stash vanished in a day! New flavors like Peanut Butter & Strawberry and Dark Chocolate Cherry Cashew (up to 190 calories and 12 grams of fat each) "are not too sweet but still taste like a treat," one editor said, plus they've got filling protein and fiber. Kind Minis are an ideal diet-friendly snack at 115 calories.
