Easy Food Resolutions for the New Year

Eat a Better Breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and eating a less-sugary one will help keep you from crashing later on. Eating a breakfast full of fiber and protein will keep you energized until lunch. Sure, you might have to get up a little earlier to cook something good, but the overall effort will be worth it.

Eat Healthier Snacks
It’s easy to grab a bag of chips, or a candy bar, when you need a snack. However, eating this way will hurt your health and weight loss goals. Be mindful when snacking and pick smarter snacks that will still give you great satisfaction, but without all the extra calories. Grapes, bananas, nuts, or even some trail-mix is a great place to start.

Eat More Colorful Things
If the food you’re eating is dull and pale in color, then you’re probably not getting all the right nutrients that your body needs. A good resolution this year is to make sure your meals involve colorful food items. Eating beets, carrots, squash, peppers, spinach, tomatoes, and other colorful vegetables will ensure that your diet is delicious and nutritious.

Grow Your Own Food
Starting a garden this year is a resolution that the whole family can enjoy. Not only will you learn a lot of new stuff, you’ll also be able to eat the fruits of your labor. No matter where you live, you can have your own garden. Furthermore, it’s a lot easier than a lot of people think. Growing tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, peppers, and more is a cheaper alternative than buying them at the stores, and it’s really rewarding being able to pick something fresh off the vine and take it right to your table. Start a new tradition this year with an annual garden. Before long you’ll have your own little farmer’s market in your backyard.

So as you can see, making healthy food choices as part of your new year’s resolutions will allow you to accomplish many of your lifestyle goals, and it’s not as hard as one would think. If you’ve got a healthy food new year’s resolution that we missed, please post it in the comments below.
