While we hear of all kinds of resolutions people keep each year, many end up wanting to live a healthier life. For this reason, quitting smoking, limiting alcohol consumption and losing weight become resolutions with a spotlight on them. These, however, are not easy. Since we are well into the new year, it is a good idea to do a progress check. Ask yourself questions: have you cheated on your diet more than you intended, or had an extra serving at the bar, or perhaps, had that one slip with smoking? Don’t worry, mistakes can be less expensive if caught early.
Like many busy people your schedule always has you on the go. Which for many is the biggest excuse to eat unhealthy. Try to eat right, no matter what and try to stay away from unhealthy food. Carry a handful of almonds as a healthy snack. Since they are convenient and healthy and can be eaten anywhere and anytime of the day, use them whenever you crave a snack. They will keep you energized through the day.
Not everyone is able to stick to eating healthy and it is usually because they think it is boring or bland. It does not have to be. On the contrary, it is quite easy to make something that is healthy, also tasty. You can start small with your snacking habits – instead of the regular snack time goodies, dry roast some almonds with a bit of pepper to begin with. You can also pair almonds with seasonal fruits or include them in other snacks. The idea is to keep it simple yet giving yourself enough variety to keep you motivated to achieve your goal.
Diet has to be the bigger part of your fitness plan. You must ensure you choose foods that provide you with a variety of nutrients to get the most out of every bite you consume and make your meal a wholesome one. For those resolving to manage or lose weight, nuts like almonds, seeds like flax and vegetables like broccoli can be very beneficial. Almonds are a source of 15 nutrients including many essential nutrients that ensure a wholesome and healthy life.
Eating healthy is not that hard, it just takes willpower and planning.
