For many of us, January is a time to create new habits and establish what we want to accomplish in the year to come. Among other things, looking at our eating habits is a common trend for New Years resolutions as we try get back into a healthy routine after holiday indulgences. If getting back on the wellness wagon is one of your new years resolutions, here are 3 tips for helping you stay on track:
- Keep Healthy Food in Your Fridge – If you keep healthy food in your fridge, you will eat healthy food. Skip the middle isles of the grocery store, which mostly contain processed food products, and instead shop the perimeter of store for fresh produce and REAL food!
- Meal Plan and Prep – Instead of deciding what you want while at the grocery store, take some time to plan your meals in advance so you know exactly what you’re shopping for. If you have a busy week ahead, plan a day to meal prep. Meal prepping allows you to have a few things on hand if you have to work late, or have other commitments that prevent you from making a healthy meal.
- Have a Backup Plan – Create an if/then plan for yourself to help keep you on track with your goals. For example, if you forget to pack a healthy lunch, purchase a cold-pressed juice and raw salad from Glow Juicery.
