    How To Eat Healthier Without Even Noticing

    You'll definitely want to be feeling your best when spring finally decides to roll in.

    1. Don't just prep dinners on Sunday; prep breakfast and lunch for the week, too!

    2. If you love oatmeal but want to change it up, turn leftover brown rice into a quick and filling breakfast porridge.

    3. Break out the spiralizer and recreate your favorite pasta recipes with vegetable noodles.

    I know I've said it a million times already, but investing in a spiralizer is so worth it. We love this one. These zucchini noodles are tossed in a homemade kale pesto that you can save and use all week. Recipe here.

    4. Add fruit to lunch and dinner recipes to add healthy flavor.

    Add raw fruit to salads and sandwiches, or cook them into stews or stir-fries. These 10-Minute Pineapple Black Bean Tostadas are quick, colorful, and the perfect balance of savory and sweet.

    5. Looking for a sweet, high-protein, real-food breakfast? Add cottage cheese to your pancakes.

    Sure, you could add powdered protein to regular pancake batter, but lots of those powders contain added sugars and lots of other ingredients. Cottage cheese is just as high in protein and much more natural. These Blueberry Cottage Cheese Pancakes fit the bill.

    6. Eat as many colors as possible! Different colors often mean different vitamins and nutrients. Plus, it makes eating a little more fun.

    7. Practice portion control without having to weigh and measure everything.

    Being able to eyeball the proper portion sizes for the foods you eat every day will keep you feeling great without making you feel obsessive. Learn more here.
