One of the principles of Blue Zone living is to try as far as possible to make the healthy option the eeasy option. I found this tip quite helpful. When you come home with the shopping, wash the fruit and veg, peel and chop and put into small containers in the fridge - on the middle shellf at the front so that when you feel peckish your healthy snack is instant.
Make it easier to reach than the biscuit tin! You get the idea..
Moving naturally is another principle. I am rather lazy and not sporty and I hate the idea of the gym, but walking a bit before getting on the bus, taking the stairs, stacking logs, gardening most days - the more I move, the easier it is.
One of the recipes from the book - bananas oats apple and choc chips. Quite nice. I am also planning to have three or four plant based meals each week. Using a smaller plate, stopping eating when you are 80% full - lots of small changes which are easy to make. Every little helps hopefully.
I will soon be tripping along like these two (Thank you Elizabeth!)
