Play with Your Food: Making Healthy Eating Fun

Who said healthy food had to be boring? You don’t have to live on quinoa and kale for the rest of your life simply because you decide to take better care of your body. Make food fun with a few playful tips. Fill Your Plate with Colour This idea is perfect for families! Each week, pick up fresh fruits and vegetables in fun colors: bright red bell peppers, sweet tangerines, or bold grapefruit. Make each meal at colorful as you can with greens, meats, and these fun, bright ingredients. Not only will it make you feel happy, all that color means you’re getting a variety of nutrients. Make Food Art with A Fun Tutorial When you have time, experiment with new dishes and have a little playtime with your food! Whether it’s trying an international dish, utilizing a unique ingredient, or even creating cool art with your food, it’s a great way to add fun to your meals. Visit YouTube and Pinterest to gather ideas. If you really want to go all-out, invite friends or the kids to participate. Make Like A Food Blogger with Beautiful Plating What’s better than food that’s so pretty, you kind of don’t want to eat it? Answer: eating it! Treat your meals like true works of art with skilled plating. It doesn’t require a lot of effort to present beautiful, well-put-together meals that our family and friends can’t help but snap a photo of. You’ll feel great about what you make, and you can share it with everyone online, too. Try Something Weird Once a week, try a “trending food” dish to mix up your menu. Search for trending foods online to find a recipe you can make at home. It makes a great conversation starter, and if you’re plating is awesome too, it’s the perfect opportunity to share the goods with a picture!
