Healthy Habits for the year ahead!
Rather than launching head first into oversized and unrealistic goals which will have probably gone by the wayside by March, here is a more effective approach to set yourself up for a happy, healthy year ahead.
Having a well-stocked pantry is key to making the healthy choice an easy choice, saving you time and money. There are plenty of “health-foods” out there, but you don’t need to invest in the latest fad or trend to keep on top of things.
Lentils are a great source of soluble fibre, making them beneficial for lowering cholesterol and preventing heart disease. They also pack a mighty protein punch and are high in folate, manganese, iron and phosphorus. They are an easy, cost-effective way to bulk out meals and they soak up any flavours you put them with.
Sadly, you can’t out run a bad diet. The food we eat provides the fuel our bodies need for training, competing and recovering and whether you are an athlete or recreational exerciser, it is important to effectively maintain your energy levels to make sure your body is able to function properly.
