C is for Change
NUTRITION TIP THURSDAY
C | Change
Here we are, halfway through January! I hope your trusty New Year's Resolutions are going strong. Change can be super hard to make - especially the kind of change that will last a lifetime.
Let’s talk about some simple nutrition changes you can make this year:
Keep the produce in sight
On the counter or at eye-level in the fridge
The more you look at it, the more you’ll eat it!
Do all food prep before storing in the pantry/fridge.
Take an hour after you get home from the grocery to chop, dice, portion, wash, etc. before things get put away
Cut tops off of strawberries
Chop celery and separate into tupperware for easy snacking
Hard-boil your eggs before putting them away for easy snacks or breakfasts
Bag up single-serving size of whole wheat crackers
Do not eat right from the bag - portion chips and snacks into a bowl
Eat vegetables first!
Fill up on the good stuff then maybe you won’t want all that mac and cheese
Drink more water
This is important. Carry a refillable bottle with you...and use it lots!
Try a new vegetable or fruit once a month
