At The Skinny Kitchen we believe in healthy food year-round. However, if you struggle for motivation to eat well and exercise more, January is a great time to start! You’ll find discounted offers on gym memberships, supermarkets push healthier options to the front and you are more likely to find a friend to partner up with.
Here are some top tips for those new year’s resolutions of healthy eating in 2019:
1. Fill your fridge with healthy food.
By making sure you only have healthy ingredients, you’re much more likely to resist temptation. If it’s not in the house, chances are you won’t eat it.
2. Make cooking a hobby.
Cooking can be really fun and the more you learn about different food, the more you will want to experiment. Once a week, pick a healthy food you’ve never heard of and find a recipe that uses it.
3. Get a gym membership or trial
If you don’t already have a gym membership, now is the time. Search for the best offers in your area as January is the time gyms want to get new people signed up. Because of this you’ll often find gyms give discounted rates.
4. Partner up
You are far more likely to find a friend to work with in January, as a lot of people jump on healthy eating as their new year’s resolution. Partnering up with a colleague means you can join forces to resist the 3pm vending machine trip. Take it in turns to bring in a healthy snack that you can have when the sugar/junk food craving kicks in.
5. Look for alternative foods.
Spiralizing is huge, and it’s hit the supermarkets in a big way during 2017!
There are so many alternatives out there now, you no longer have to settle for high carb pasta when you can’t resist the temptation. A few pasta alternatives include: chickpea pasta, high protein pasta, edamame bean pasta… you get the idea! The chilled aisle also regularly have pre-spiralized veg ready to go. Easy!
