Tips on maintaining a healthy household

Working professionals, stay-at-home mums, single working mothers… modern women play a variety of different roles.

What they all have in common is they are usually the driving force of health when it comes to their families.

The Diet Everyone Talks About founder and diet pioneer Gert Coetzee shares some tips for maintaining health in our households.

Nutrition

From eating habits to food selection and how food is prepared, women generally determine how their households eat.

Low-carb food options include mushrooms, peppers, fish, avocados, cabbage, carrots, spinach, turnips, cauliflower, broccoli and asparagus.

If a healthy snack is what you’re looking for, almonds, walnuts, cashew nuts, pumpkin seeds and biltong are also good choices.

Remember to include plenty of water in your daily diet.

Body health

As women, there are some medical conditions that are of great concern to us, such as breast cancer, heart disease and depression.

To lower the risks, consider reducing the amount of processed foods you consume.

Add a variety of fresh fruit, vegetables and lean cuts of meat and fish to your diet instead.

Keep in mind that eating healthily will also help you to maintain your weight.

Physical activity

Include physical activity to your daily life.

– Stronger heart and lungs
