Americans are eating healthier

Down with fast food! That’s the war cry being heard in households up and down the country. Americans are changing their eating habits. Healthy eating is increasingly fashionable and this time it seems like it’s here to stay. Could it be more than just a trend? Only time will tell.

Americans are eating healthier

What is certain is that, USA Today, American pantries are stocked with more healthy products than ever before. Take a look at the average shopping list and it’s clear: fruit consumption is up, while the consumption of carbonated drinks is down. Fruit is the second most popular food in the US, with bananas, apples, oranges and grapes the most consumed varieties. All well and good, but do you really know what products you should include in your daily diet?

Curry vegetables

You should keep in mind that vegetables and grains are important food groups in any diet because they give the body necessary nutrients. Frying vegetables with Olive Oil or eating salads with an Olive Oil dressing not only give your cooking a unique taste, but also help you maintain a healthy lifestyle. It is important to avoid saturated fats and substitute them in daily cooking for Olive Oil, a healthy, natural and fresh product. When it comes to selecting an Olive Oil, we recommend the best in the world: Olive Oil from Spain. Did you know that Spain is the world leader in the production and export of quality Olive Oils? Next time you are at the supermarket and have to choose, remember our advice. As you can see, sandwiches continue to dominate, but this doesn’t have to be negative. You can include vegetables in your packed lunches, by preparing a sandwich with spinach, lettuce, onion and tomato. It’s an easy way to include this important food group in your diet. We mention this because, according to USA Today, vegetables rank as the third most consumed food, behind fruit and sandwiches.

In any case, products like milk and vegetables are becoming more and more common in Americans’ day-to-day lives, and this is great news.

If you haven’t made the effort to eat healthier yet, after the holiday season is a fantastic time to do so. That doesn’t mean you have to completely swear off eating out or eating fast food. Simply include more vegetables, fruits and Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Spain in your meals at home and elsewhere.

We are determined to try it. Are you?
