Discover new foods
One of the most exciting ways of adopting a new eating habit is finding more and more different foods to try. Explore a specialty foods store, get a new cookbook at the library, or explore new ethnic restaurants. Keeping your taste buds this way will encourage you to continue with eating healthy foods.
Think short term
Keep your goals in doable short-term amount. Focus on half to one week at a time or, if essential, one day at a time. Feel great about the healthy choices you made at the last meal instead of wondering about the slip you made at the party last weekend.
Find a friend or a family member to join you
Sharing health information with your family or friends can be extremely motivating. If everyone gets on to eat healthy foods around the house—such as vegetables, fruits, soymilk, and nuts, hummus and pita, you will not feel tempted to carve on the unhealthy foods you used to eat. You will motivate each other to order plant-based delicious meals at restaurants because you share a common idea and goal.
