Overwhelmed with Health Advice? Try Just this One Simple Change

Making better health choices can become overwhelming fairly quickly. There are countless people out there offering all sorts of health advice and it can quickly become too much. Keeping tabs on all of the information can leave you overwhelmed and discouraged. It may even result in your becoming counterproductive and thus work against your goals. The good news is that even if you don’t know where to start or are feeling overwhelmed, there is one simple change that can have a huge impact on your health.

One Simple Way to Start Your Health Journey

Often, big lifestyle changes are unsustainable. Instead, smaller changes are easier to maintain and can add up making a world of difference. We happen to know of one small change that can have a huge impact on your health goals. Even better, it’s one of the most simple changes you can make. It’s even a delicious change! Curious what it is? Let’s just start with your breakfast.

Start with Breakfast

Most people fall into two categories:1) they either eat a high fat, heavy-carbohydrate meal or, 2) they skip breakfast altogether. Neither is a good choice.

Instead, if you focus on creating a plant-based high-fiber breakfast containing plenty of nutrient-dense foods, then that one change is likely to improve how you feel for the rest of the day.

This small change requires a bit of unlearning though. And by this we mean unlearn what you normally envision of when you think breakfast foods. Set aside the toast and pancakes and bacon.

Instead, start creating your breakfast with fresh fruit and vegetables. Instead of that toast, try a wild rice or quinoa. You can even add peas or lentils for an extra boost of nutrient dense foods.

Medicinal plants can also become a staple at your breakfast table. Amla (also known as Indian gooseberry) is a particularly potent plant that is recognized as the world’s most powerful antioxidant. Amla has 75 times the antioxidant power of goji berries and 50 times that of blueberries. Amla Green makes it easy to incorporate this botanical right into your daily breakfast.

We’ve got several recipes below to help you start creating this new daily routine. And, remember, this one small change can add up to big health changes!

Starting Small Can Help You to Succeed

When you begin a lifestyle change, it can be tempting to go all in. While that can work for some people, many will burn out on that approach. Small changes can have a lasting impact. This is why starting with small changes can have a huge impact on your overall health. Switching up breakfast is a great start, and here are a few simple tips to keep in mind while you are implementing these new eating habits.

  • It takes 21 days to form a habit - Instead of starting by changing up your entire life, it may help to change just breakfast for 21 days. Starting with this simple change will help you to make it more of a habit you can stick to.
  • Small changes add up over time - While big changes can have an initial impact, small changes that are continued can add up over time. Give yourself permission to focus on small changes that become a part of the way you live your life.
  • Add a morning tea to your routine - Did you know that Amla Green has a tea that can boost your metabolic health? Start every morning with a cup of tea containing the same berries that have been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years to slow aging and turn back the hands of time on wrinkles and gray hair.
