Health is a vital part of life for any living and breathing thing whether us humans, animals or plants. You cannot put a price tag on health so it’s important to take good care of ourselves while we can.
There are many ways we can maintain good health but there are better ways we can improve our health. Portion control is a great way we can improve not only our internal and external health, but our mental health as well. It is a discipline that teaches us we can enjoy the things we like, and at the same time, teach ourselves not to be over-indulgent with it.
A good example would be paying attention to how much oil you use. While a little doesn’t always go a long way, there are many calories in just 1 tablespoon of oil. Whether coconut, olive, macadamia nut or whatever you prefer, in only 1 tablespoon, there are 120 calories! There are a lot of measuring units and helpful gadgets you can buy to help with portion control. From meal management bags with custom meal containers, oil misters to sectioned plates labeled to show you where each food item goes.
Health tip of the day: Make sure you read the label and check out how much 1 serving is that way you don’t consume most of your caloric intake with 1 single food item!
