Easy Ways to Eat Healthier This Year
The New Year is right around the corner. With only a matter of days left on the countdown until 2018, you may have found yourself wondering what your New Year’s resolution will be for the upcoming year. If you’re like most people, one of your goals may be healthier living.
There’s no better way to start your healthy lifestyle than by focusing on the food you intend to prioritize this upcoming year. Food is always an essential part of any New Year’s resolution, after all! Whether your goal is to shed a few pounds or to lead a healthier lifestyle overall, here’s a few key essentials to help keep you on track towards fulfilling your nutritious eating goals:
Replace Your Bubbly Beverages with a Glass of Water
If you’re like most people, you may just have a sweet tooth. But if your New Year’s resolution is to eat healthier, you might want to forgo your sugary drinks for a more beneficial alternative — a revitalizing glass of H20. No meal is complete without a refreshing beverage to finish it off. Swapping out a glass of soda with water helps lay the foundation for the healthier lifestyle you intend to follow.
Slow and Steady Achieves the New Year’s Goals
When you go into the office or sit down for brunch with friends and family a few weeks into January, you’ll likely hear that some of your loved ones have already thrown in the towel on achieving their New Year’s resolution. When it comes to healthier eating, many attempt to obtain their food goals a little too quickly.
If you’re used to fast food every other day, don’t expect to force fruits and vegetables into breakfast, lunch and dinner with ease. Slowly accustom yourself to a healthier lifestyle by introducing vitamin-rich foods into your favorite meals. If you usually pop some bread in the toaster for breakfast, try adding a fruit spread on top. If you’re a chocolate junkie, add small pieces of your favored sweet to Greek yogurt for a healthier snack alternative. The goal is to ease your way into a nutritious lifestyle you can maintain without feeling overwhelmed by a quick and sudden change.
Get Creative in the Kitchen
If you’re planning a healthier lifestyle, your first course of action will be to sharpen up your cooking skills. While going out to eat is a nice luxury to indulge in every now and again, nothing beats the freshness of a home-cooked meal. Cooking health-conscientious recipes allow you to decide exactly what ingredients go into your dish. Check out our healthy recipe options when planning your next meal.
