Giveaway: 4 Healthy Eating Tips and Whole Foods Market $25 Gift Card CLOSED

Most people want to lead a healthy lifestyle, but struggle with the “how,” which is why Whole Foods Market goes beyond just selling the healthiest foods. They also want to provide healthy eating education and tools to support shoppers on their personal journeys to health.

Healthy Eating

According to Whole Foods Market there are "Four Pillars of Healthy Eating", which offers a simple approach to healthy eating. This pillars are rooted in four simple ways to build a better, delicious meal: whole food, plant-strong, nutrient dense and healthy fats.

1. Focus on Whole Foods

No, we're not talking about concentrating on Whole Foods Market here. We mean "whole foods" – any food in its most essential, pure and basic form: an asparagus spear, a lemon slice, a scoop of quinoa or a fillet of salmon. Favoring a whole foods-rich diet is a simple way to ensure that what you eat is micronutrient dense and free of unnecessary additives. Whole foods are the best ingredients for creating tasty and healthy meals, and diets loaded with whole, unrefined and unprocessed foods may help keep you healthy.

2. Eat Plant-Strong

Whether you're going gluten-free or love your dairy, meat and seafood, every diet can benefit from a focus on plant-based foods. Begin to reconfigure your meals so that the majority of your plate contains raw and cooked vegetables, fruits, legumes and beans, nuts, seeds and whole grains. When you eat more plants, you're helping your body get the key micronutrients it needs to function at its best.

3. Choose Healthy Fats

Believe it or not, fat is part of a healthy diet – but only if it's the right kind. Get your healthy fats from whole plant-based foods like nuts, seeds and avocados. Then, minimize (or eliminate) the amounts of extracted oils and processed fats you cook with on a daily basis

4. Consider Nutrient Density

A variety of nutrients – such as vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients – are essential for good health. Eat a rainbow of fruits and vegetables along with all kinds of whole grains, beans and other unrefined whole plant foods to get the most out of your diet
