Have you made your new year’s resolutions? Is a diet on the list? This year try taking a fresh new approach to nutrition. Instead of counting calories, focus on the quality of the foods you eat.
Consider one or more of these strategies:
- Switch from juicing to smoothies. Juicing removes most of the fiber and many vitamins. Puree whole fruits and vegetables in the blender with ice, a splash of milk, protein powder, or yogurt. Experiment to find the combinations you like most.
- Go whole and eat only non-processed foods. Cooking from scratch is much healthier and can save you money.
- Make a goal to try a new vegetable every week.
- Cut back on sugar by limiting yourself to one or two desserts per week. Satisfy your sugar cravings with fresh fruit.
Simple changes like these can make a big difference to your waistline and your overall health. Don’t forget to motivate yourself with a non-food reward for meeting your goals.
