By now many of us have let our healthy new year resolutions fall by the wayside. I am on News 4 Jacksonille’s Rive City Live sharing easy and delicious ways to get back on track!
Start the day with an easy and healthy breakfast
Overnights are an easy breakfast that essentially cooks itself in the fridge overnight. To a jar add ½ cup rolled oats, ½ cup milk and 1 applesauce pouch. These Brainiac Brain Squeezers come in three flavors – Mega Apple, Apple Cinnamon and Apple Strawberry and are packed with brain fuel include omega 3 DHA fatty acids and choline so are the ultimate parenting snack hack. No added sugar or artificial ingredients – find this 10-pack box for 8.99 at Publix on the top shelf of the canned fruits aisle. There is also a digital promo running through the end of the month for $2 off.
For lunch, try a salad jar
Salad jars are an easy and healthy make-ahead lunch idea that stays fresh in the fridge when stored right. For my Mediterranean salad jar, I used fresh cravings hummus as the dressing which is made with a short list of high-quality ingredients like chickpeas, savory tahini and Chilean extra virgin olive oil. It is available in flavors like Classic and Roasted Red Pepper at Publix. Then add chickpeas, cucumber, tomato, red onion, feta and arugula. You can also do a taco salad jar using the Fresh Cravings organic refrigerated salsa or hamburger salad in a jar with the Fresh Cravings Kickin Queso cashew dip all available at Publix.
Finally, support your gut health in the new year
A healthy gut means healthy digestion, immunity and more. You can do that by focusing on probiotics and prebiotics. My favorite way to do that is with kombucha and tepache which are fermented beverages that I call bubbly beverages with benefits. I like the Big Easy brand ecause it doesn’t have a vinegary taste like other kombuchas, you can find them at Publix.
