It’s that time of the season, when people everywhere are considering what resolutions they’re going to make for the new year. But instead of making the usual weight loss goal, why not make it a food related goal? Something fun or even healthy to celebrate the new year like only a foodie can!
Be more adventurous
Have you been eating the same old thing? Do you feel like you’re in a food rut? It’s time to spice up your taste buds with a little adventure. Why not try making new recipes or ordering a different dish next time you go out to eat. Have a little fun this year!
Switch out your fats
Some fats are deemed healthy, while others not so much! Start focusing on healthier fats in your diet like unsaturated, monounsaturated, and polyunsaturated fats. Try to limit saturated fats, and avoid trans fats.
Be choosy with your snacks
Instead of reaching for a candy bar, try developing healthier snack options. Good choices include almonds, apples, celery, carrots, walnuts, strawberries, cottage cheese, etc. There are a variety of delicious options to choose from.
Do you find yourself buying takeout all too often? If you’re feeling a strain on your wallet, maybe it’s time to cut back on the takeout. And if you’re tight on time, cook ahead, make freezer meals for the week.
Refresh your beverage choice
If you’ve found you’re a chain soda drinker, it may be time to switch up your beverage. Aim to drink less sugary drinks and more water. Water is what your body needs, make sure you’re staying hydrated, it can improve your overall health and appearance.
