Health and Wellness nutley nj

We’re here to encourage everyone to live a healthier lifestyle, and to support you in reaching your goals. For some people, that might be losing weight or building visible muscle. But if not, that’s not the only reason to improve your nutrition, and there’s far more benefits you could gain! So, if you want to give a certain area of your health a boost or just generally want to feel a little better, here’s some awesome goals to set that doesn’t revolve around weight loss.

Increase your vegetable consumption: Instead of focusing on things not to eat, how about adding something in instead? Try to increase your vegetable consumption by at least 2 portions every day. Focus on eating the rainbow. It’ll not only make your plate look a whole lot more vibrant but is also a great way to make sure you’re getting a variety of different vitamins and minerals.

Sip more water: This year, vow to keep your bottle filled with water and sip from it regularly throughout the day. Research shows upping your water intake even by small amounts is associated with less saturated fat, sugar and sodium consumption. 

Don’t drink your calories: They may not seem like that bad of a vice, but fizzy drinks, both original and diet versions are devoid of much nutritional value. The sugars and artificial sweeteners can trigger insulin secretion and the excess of caffeine often leads to unsustainable energy spikes, leaving you ready to fall asleep at your desk. 

Snack healthier: Many of us can navigate a balanced breakfast, lunch and dinner, but excessive snacking can be our huge downfall. Before you grab a chocolate bar or packet of chips, boost your nutrition by aiming to have one smart snack every day. Try to grab some veggie sticks and hummus on the go.  

Cook one new recipe each week: Want to improve your culinary skills and diversify your pallet? Set yourself the goal of trying at least one brand new recipe every week. It’ll inject some fun back into weekday dinners and will mean by the end of the month you have a whole lot more techniques and flavor combinations to add to your cooking repertoire.  

And there you have it. Try setting these goals and experience the positive changes your body goes through.
