    The Importance Of Having Variety In Your Diet

    Variety In Your Diet

    I don’t know about you but sometimes I fall into a food rut where I eat similar meals all the time. It often starts by finding a healthy recipe that I love and cooking it so frequently that I forget how much I used to love it. Here are just a few reasons why variety in your diet is so important.

    Nutritional Intake

    It is essential to eat a wide range of fruits, vegetables, and other healthy whole foods to ensure that you receive the full range of essential nutrients your body requires. By eating only a handful of foods no matter how healthy there will be a few nutrients you will miss out on.

    The Joy Of Food

    We’re all busy, so it’s easier to grocery shop if we have a few tried and true recipes we turn to regularly. But as mentioned above there is such a thing as too much of a good thing so boredom can set in. Set a goal to try at least one new recipe a week to give yourself more delicious options.

    It Makes It Easier To Stick To Your Diet

    If you are on a weight loss or weight maintenance diet you must keep the variety in your diet or you will start to feel restricted in your food choices—making it hard to stay on track and more likely that you will overindulge when you splurge.

    If your busy schedule is why you repeat so often in your meal plan find a few healthy restaurants that you can order from a few times a week to infuse a bit more variety in your diet.
