A healthy life is a happy life! You can start living healthier by simply substituting a few things in your daily routine. Remember that small things can make a big difference and little changes can yield huge results!

1. Cook at home instead of eating out

Did you know that even “healthy” choices like salads at a restaurant can pack more calories than your maximum daily intake? And what do they put in those fancy pastas at Italian restaurants anyway? Cooking at home not only can help you monitor the exact ingredients of a dish, your wallet will thank you for it too.

2. Use oil and balsamic vinaigrette instead of other dressings

It’s true that salads are a healthy choice for you. But people often get too heavy-handed with the dressing and BAM, goes the healthy component of the salad (you might as well have gotten a burger). So to maintain the healthiness of a salad, lightly dress it with olive oil and balsamic vinegar instead.

3. Raw spinach is better than iceberg lettuce

Spinach is full of vitamin K, vitamin A, calcium, and iron. Iceberg lettuce is just… boring. Enough said.

4. Try sparkling water when you’re craving soda

You’ve probably heard this one too many times. Soda is VERY bad for you. If you need a carbonation kick, why not try a cup of sparking water? They also come in fruity flavors like strawberry, orange, lemon-lime, etc.
