Eating Healthy Tips for the New Year
I can’t believe that the New Year is almost here. I’m excited, but I also know it’s time to whip my diet into shape. Every New Year is a fresh start to get back on the smart eating train. With this in mind, I know some of my readers have a desire to eat a little healthier. Why do all the work ourselves? Check out these healthy eating tips for the New Year.
Drink more water
If you can’t do anything else to help yourself with healthy eating, drink more water. Water is a natural healthy staple we can all use. Drink a few more glasses of water to help you get back on the healthy eating train.
One thing I love about simplicity is that it helps us to keep our sanity. For example, eating more veggies is another GREAT way to eat healthy this New Year. I like to make a few simple salads and enjoy them throughout the week. Already made salads are so easy to pull out of the fridge.
Get an accountability partner
Don’t try to do everything yourself, get an accountability partner. There is something special about sharing your failures and wins with a person. Pick someone that will build you up and make your healthy eating endeavors successful.
Stock up on great cookbooks
Let’s be honest, eating the same thing over and over again can get old. Which is why I’m excited to tell you all about these three full-color cookbooks. Each one has awesome healthy recipes that are easy and delicious. I did receive copies of these books, however, all opinions are 100% my own.
