3 Healthy Eating Tips From Honolulu’s Nutrition Experts, Honolulu, Hawaii

Healthy eating is crucial to your overall health and wellness. That’s why the experienced sports medicine team at IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health in Honolulu, Hawaii, works diligently with patients on nutrition plans and wellness coaching for improved eating habits. If you’re looking to make a change and embrace better health and nutrition, the staff has a few tips to help make the transition easier.

Here are three healthy eating tips from the sports medicine and wellness coaching pros at IMUA Orthopedics, Sports & Health:

  • Snacks: Everybody indulges in snacks throughout the day. It’s perfectly fine to enjoy a little food in between larger meals, but try your best to avoid snacks that are high in trans fat. Your local grocery store will have plenty of lower fat options if you look for them. For example, instead of regular tortilla chips, buy baked chips. Instead of treating yourself to an ice cream bar, go for a fruit Popsicle with no added sugar. And rather than reaching for a donut, have a piece of whole wheat toast with almond butter.
  • nutritionFast Food Dining: It can be challenging to eat healthy when you’re on the go and fast food restaurants are your only option. Luckily, many fast food chains have healthier alternatives on their menu. Instead of going for a double-decker cheeseburger, pick a grilled chicken sandwich or a salad. Try to skip the french fries and enjoy a side salad or some fruit instead — your waistline will thank you later.
  • Cooking At Home: When you’re cooking at home, you have all the power! It’s easy to turn your favorite recipes and dishes into lighter fare through substitutions. When you can, opt for fat-free or low-fat ingredients. For example, if a recipe calls for milk, choose skim milk. If you are supposed to add cream cheese to a dish, try margarine blended with cottage cheese. For breakfast, opt for two egg whites instead of one egg.
