How to Keep Your Healthy-Eating New Year’s Resolutions
Did you resolve to eat healthier in the New Year? Whether you’re striving to lose weight, get fit, or improve your overall health, developing healthy eating habits can be tough. Fortunatly, we have some tips and recipes that will make sticking to your New Year’s resolution a little easier.  
 
1. Make healthy snack choices. 
Snacking is NOT a bad thing. It’s perfectly healthy to have small snacks in between meals. In fact, studies show that snacking prevents you from becoming overly hungry and overeating at your next meal. However, instead of snacking on processed, high-calorie foods, make healthy choices, like Moore’s Buffalo Cauliflower Bites. 
 
2. Cook lean proteins. 
Protein is an important part of your diet, but fried chicken wings and juicy steaks are not the best choices to help you achieve your New Year’s resolution. Trade out the fattier meats for lean proteins, such as chicken, salmon, tuna and skinless turkey, to boost your health and help you reach your health goals. Looking for a suggestion? Try Moore’s Asian-Style Grilled Salmon for an excellent option. 
 
3. Eat your veggies!
You’ve probably heard this a time or two before, but it’s still just as important. Vegetables provide nutrients that are vital for your overall health and maintenance of your body. Plus, because vegetables are low in calories, which will help you reduce your calorie intake! Pair your lean proteins with a tasty side of Grilled Vegetables for a simple and healthy meal!
