4 Habits to Start Now for a Healthy Year
With the new year comes all sorts of new goals. My biggest goal for this year is to focus more on my family’s health and wellness. This is something that is constantly on my mind, “Are we eating right”, “could we be more active?”, but as a busy household where all 5 of us are running on different schedules, it can feel impossible to keep it all together and do it in a healthy way.
Because we are busy, I know it is easy for me to lose sight of my goals if they start to feel impossible to obtain, so I am all about making simple changes throughout the day that when done together can cause a ripple effect of big change. I have started the year off concentrating on cultivating healthy habits with the help of 4 of my favorite products from Walmart. Some of these products I have talked about in the past and some are brand new, like the hash browns that my teenager just came in asking for as an afterschool snack.
Do you have a resolution for a healthier year in 2020? Try starting these new habits.
Take Your Vitamins
My family takes Vitafusion Men and Women’s Gummy Vitamins and L’il Critters Children’s Gummy Vitamins to help improve our intake of vitamins. During my last physical my doctor suggested I add a multivitamin to my routine because my levels were low. I chose Vitafusion because they are the only gummy vitamin brand with “clinically proven absorption”* and has Award-Winning Taste!**
The kids take L’il Critters Children’s Gummy Vitamins, we chose them because they are the only gummy vitamin brand with “doctor tested proven nutrient absorption”*, plus we can give them the nutrients they need without artificial sweeteners, synthetic dyes, gluten, or dairy. However, even though I chose L’il Critters Children’s Gummy Vitamins for all the great benefits, the kids keep asking for them because they taste great and come in the shape of gummy bears, so if you have a picky vitamin taker on your hands definitely give L’il Critters a try!
*For Vitamins C & D3 in products that contain those nutrients
** The ChefsBest Excellence Award is awarded to brands that surpass a quality standard established by independent professional chefs.
Fit More Veggies into Your Diet
I am constantly trying to fit more veggies into our everyday meals, especially in ways that my children are oblivious to. While all 3 of my kids have certain vegetables that are their favorites, it can still be a mealtime struggle if each meal is served with a heaping pile of vegetables. So when I find an item that we normally eat that is made with vegetables instead, I have to try it, and when that product tastes even better than the original food I was trying to replace, I want to scream it from the rooftops so all my mom friends know. Well, I have found a new freezer staple! Green Giant Veggie Hash Browns! I would say a breakfast staple, but honestly, these kids have been asking for them at every meal, as I said at the beginning of this post my teenager is currently sitting here eating hash browns while doing his homework.
Green Giant Veggie Hash Browns bring you the same hearty flavor and crunchy bite you love from hash browns with one full serving of cauliflower in each serving, plus they are free of artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives.
Also, Green Giant has a full line of new products at Walmart to try such as the Cauliflower Gnocchi!
Find time to Exercise
I know we are all extremely busy, between taking care of the kids, homes, working, and the list goes on, finding time to exercise can feel impossible. However, even a short workout can have a huge impact on how you feel and your health. I have been making exercise a priority and it not only improves the way my clothes fit, but it also gives me an extra boost of energy, which actually helps me get more done throughout the day even though I have taken time out to hit the gym.
I love how the Optimum Nutrition line of products that help me stay on track and support my wellness goals!
Amino Energy drink mix is a zero sugar, easy to make, pick me up that provides caffeine from natural sources. This is a great-tasting way to get some energy during the day.
Gold Standard Whey is my go-to post-workout protein drink. It contains only 120 calories, 1.5g of fat, 2g of sugar, and is packed with 24g of protein and whey protein isolate is the primary source, that is perfect for me, as I am trying to keep my carbs low.
