The sun has risen on 2014 and everyone is two weeks into their new year resolutions already! I haven’t made new years resolutions exactly but I do have some goals to improve my diet and wellbeing.
1) Whole Foods
I eat a mostly whole foods diet but over the past few months I’ve slipped back into eating more processed foods and fewer vegetables than I would like. For the past two weeks I have gone back to eating whole foods and I feel amazing. I’m working on cutting out convenience foods when I’m outside the house now. I currently eat a lot of crisps and gluten free biscuits when I’m at work!
2) Fresh Vegetables
I recently stopped receiving a weekly vegetable box and started buying vegetables every week. This means I only buy what I need and I can look for fruit and vegetables which are on offer. Last week I found a huge bag of carrots for only 70p which were immediately made into soup and frozen for some cheap meals!
3) Meal Planning
With my weekly meal plan I can get much more use out of my huge collection of cookbooks and bookmarked recipes. I pair it with a shopping list so I only buy the food which I need.
I’ve never learnt how to swim but with a swimming baths around the corner from my house I’ve really got no excuse. I currently don’t do any exercise which is something I really want to change. I think some regular swimming will help my asthma and my stomach problems.
Happy new year everyone and good luck with your goals and aspirations for the year!
