Few healthy diet habits

Quit processed foods
A diet heavy in processed foods can lead to numerous problems. As well as the better-known obesity, cancer and heart disease, it causes rotten teeth, bad skin, bad breath, constipation, digestive problems, headaches, poor concentration, depression, tiredness and anemia. Need any more impetus to give them up?

Go back to the original source
For each pre-packed item of food you buy and serve, try to make it a rule to add at least one food from its original source. For instance, if you buy coleslaw from the supermarket and you own fresh carrot, tomato or spring onions, for a healthy boost. Or if you buy ready-prepared pasta, serve it with a fresh spinach salad.
