Changing habits is often not so easy to achieve, but if you have already made the decision to do so, you just need a bit of perseverance and that’s it. It does not matter at what point in life  you decide to start living a healthy life: it’s never too late.

Throughout life we ​​are acquiring, both unconsciously and consciously, some more or less healthy eating habits that depend on many factors and, although the ideal is to do so since we were little it is never too late to train the palate to eat healthier. Changing habits can be difficult but, in the end and after a while, it ends up becoming something natural and eating healthy will become a routine and much more pleasant and satisfying than many believe.

To begin to reeducate the palate to eat healthier you have to start by drinking a lot of water; choose fresh and natural foods avoiding processed foods; plan your grocery shopping in this way you only buy what you have on your list; prepare a weekly menu and cook at home, which allows you to “play” a bit with the way you prepare them so that it is more appetising – eating healthy CAN be fun and creative!
