New Year’s Resolution: Eating Healthy

One of the most popular New Years resolutions that we all make is to lose weight! This is why there is always an increase in new gym memberships and why the gym is always so busy at the start of the year! However, our goals should not be primarily to lose weight – it should be to strive for a healthier lifestyle. Although exercise is a large part of it, eating right can affect your results just as astronomically! Eating healthy includes portion control, maintaining a balanced diet, food selection and the dishes you create!

Set short term goals for long term results! People who break their resolutions into small, manageable chunks typically have more success. For example, rather than making a resolution to save $5,000 this year, try to save $100 a week. It's almost the same amount of money (a little more actually), yet the goal is easier to keep! Make your goal about the journey, not the outcome! For example, weight loss is a common goal among us all for the holidays. Instead of focusing on losing a specific number of pounds, focus your goal on healthy eating and incorporating new nutrient dishes into your diet… the weight loss will follow! Use the Buddy System! Everything is easy when you have a teammate. For example, if you have a goal to go to yoga three times a week, pair up with a friend! This allows you to mutually support and motivate each other to keep your goals.

Celebrate the little victories! At the Kidco Kitchen our goal is always to always provide your children with nutritious and delicious food. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a child who used to not eat fish or vegetables begin to open up to new foods! Lastly, and most importantly, don’t give up! No one is perfect and we all slip up on our goals, do not use the bumps in the road as an excuse to give up on the whole goal! 2018 is your year so enjoy!
