New Year, New Goals
Say good-bye to 2017, and hello to 2018! It’s a new year, and what better way to kick it off than by setting meaningful goals for you to achieve! One of the most common goals we set for ourselves is to live a healthier lifestyle, and the first step to achieving this goal is to start making healthier eating choices. The hard part is that eating healthy can often be a difficult commitment. Never fear – we’re here to make it as easy as possible for you to stick to nutritious eating all year round.
Reaching Your Healthy Eating Goals with NatureFresh™
The first step towards achieving your healthy eating goals is to just get started – get busy in the kitchen ASAP! Don’t put it off! Once you start, it will become easier and easier to add healthy foods to your daily routine. To get started, visit your local grocery store and familiarize yourself with the produce department. This is essential to successfully integrate fruits and veggies into your diet. While perusing the shelves, make sure that you look for NatureFresh™ Farms Bell Peppers, Tomatoes, and Cucumbers, three superfoods that will get you well on your way to living a healthier life!
However hard you try to integrate healthy habits into your daily routine, it can be a tough challenge to stick with new resolutions when life gets busy and your plate starts to fill up (and not necessarily with healthy veggies). A goal like eating more nutritious meals can become difficult to achieve when you already feel like your time is limited. Little Dave has hockey at seven, Susie has dance, and there’s a bubble bath at home with your name on it – so when do you possibly have time to make a meal that not only fills you and your family up, but fuels your bodies with essential vitamins and nutrients? One of the best ways to maintain healthy eating habits with a hectic schedule is to make simple, quick dishes. With a large selection of fast and easy recipes available on our website, we’ve made eating healthier meals a breeze. One of our simplest recipes that you can easily incorporate into your daily routine is our Hydrated Cucumber Smoothie. Not only is it delicious and easy to make (you literally throw everything in a blender and press ‘Go’), smoothies are designed for people with the busiest schedules and meant to be drank on-the-go. Eating healthier couldn’t be made easier or more convenient!

A 360 Healthy Lifestyle
A healthy lifestyle is defined not only by nutritious eating, but also by being physically active. The same steps apply to getting active as they do to eating healthier – start right away, don’t put off taking the first step, and start with something simple! It could be going for a walk every night with your kids, or starting your day with some yoga – whatever you do to get active, just start now! Pairing daily physical activity with healthy food choices is a great way to begin achieving your healthy living goals.
