5 Nutrition Resolutions
(You Can Actually Keep)

Why go another year creating health goals which are hard to sustain? If you’re feeling the pressure this January, here are some simple nutrition resolutions, which are easy to implement without drastically changing your lifestyle…

1. Make small sustainable changes

It can be tempting to get sucked into those January crash diets, but how many are truly sustainable? Rather than trying to make too many dietary changes at once, pick just one nutrition change that you can sustain long-term for maximum results.

2. Batch cook

If you want to save time and money while enjoying healthier meals, then batch cooking is your friend! Whenever you cook try freezing portions for healthy ready meals to consume at a later date. Not only is it a great way to reduce the stress of preparing healthy meals, but it can also reduce waste.

3. Eat the rainbow

Did you know that rainbow-coloured plant-based foods provide a range of plant chemicals such as polyphenols which our beneficial gut bacteria feast on helping them to flourish and grow? Eating the rainbow and counting the colours on our plate can be a delicious way to support our gut health.

4. Swap refined carbohydrates with wholegrains

Wholegrain carbohydrates retain their fibrous outer bran layer where much of the goodness lies. These carbohydrates provide a great fibre boost and may be higher in nutrients in comparison to their refined counterparts. Try wholegrain bread, pasta, brown rice and oats.

5. Hydrate

Dehydration may result in low energy, headaches, diminished mood, and impaired cognitive function. Struggling to hydrate? Try infusing water with fresh fruit and veggies, enjoy fruit and herbal teas or even homemade vegetable juice.
