Make Your New Year’s Resolution To Eat Better
It’s that time again: time to make a few resolutions that you may or may not stick with over the next year. But why not make 2016 the first year you actually do follow a resolution? Make the decision to eat better! Here are a few things you can do in 2016 to improve your health by changing up your meals.
Add some Meat to your Breakfast
Eggs and different breakfast meats can be very good for breakfast because they contain a good amount of protein. This will help you get through your day, and many nutritionists say that eating eggs will help you feel full for most of the morning so you won’t want to snack. You may be tempted by waffles, pancakes, and hashbrowns, but remember to eat them in moderation. They contain carbs, and while you do need carbs for energy, you don’t want to eat too many of them.
Keep it Simple
You can make a healthy lunch using a whole grain wrap, some meat, and a few slices of cheese. These basic wraps can be enhanced with things like guacamole and salsa. You can add some avocado and other fruit on the side to create a very filling and healthy lunch. Whole grain wraps help get you the fiber you need, and you can find some that are fairly low carb, too.
Ditch the Frozen Meals
Look at your frozen meals. While most of them are high in sodium, there are a few lines of frozen meals that are healthier. Some are low-carb and don’t have as much salt and preservatives in them. If you absolutely can’t avoid eating these foods, at least eat the ones that are somewhat better for you. However, it’s best if you avoid them altogether.
Fight the Fast Food Temptation
With the craziness that is life, you may be tempted to grab pizza or some burgers for dinner on those days that everything seems against you. That’s definitely not very healthy, though. Your other option may be some frozen fish patties or something you can make in the microwave. These meals are usually full of preservatives, sodium, and who knows what else. They are definitely not something you really want to eat or feed to your family. Fortunately, there are a number of options for you. You can use a slow cooker, for example. You can put together your dinner the night before and refrigerate it. Then pull it out, set the slow cooker for low heat, and go to work. When you get home, your healthy dinner will be waiting for you. There are hundreds of different things you can make in a slow cooker.
You may also want to start taking an acai berry supplement. Research has shown that a supplement such as the acai berry may be able to provide you with a number of benefits.
