What are your goals for 2013? Most of us resolve to improve our lives in some way, whether it’s shedding pounds, getting fit or eating more healthy foods (oops, are those chocolate chip cookies lurking in my cabinet?!). And when it comes to enhancing your health by slimming down, Vitacost wants to help with these tips for weight loss success:
Heigh ho, heigh ho, it’s off to work you go – with no time for breakfast. If that’s your tune each morning, it’s time to do something nice for your body and mind: Eat that first meal of the day before you leave the house. Eating breakfast (and we’re talking about something more substantial than a cup of coffee laden with cream and sugar) gives you energy to kick-start your day.
The holiday season may be on its way out, but the color green is here to stay! Blend up a banana-berry smoothie, then toss in a handful of veggies, some chia seeds and a scoop of vegan protein powder for a revitalizing, nutrient-packed drink.
Once banished to novelty-shaped clay planters, chia seeds are making a comeback. But this time, they’re being used in the kitchen!
Chia seeds make a great addition to your favorite recipes, especially since they’re packed will filling fiber and nutritious omega-3s. Not sure how to cook with this superfood? Check out these easy chia recipes:
Oatmeal is a filing and healthy breakfast that’s easy to prepare, but it can get boring when the same ingredients are used to make every bowl. Jazz up your next batch with two simple additions—one of which you probably already have on hand.
Fruit salad may seem like a no-brainer, but coating sweet cherry chunks, crisp apple cubes and thinly sliced bananas with a light vanilla-agave glaze cleverly transforms a simple breakfast into a dessert-worthy indulgence. Spoon a scoop onto a gluten-free brown rice cake for a heartier way to start your day.
Being busy is no excuse! Skipping breakfast only slows you down and sets you up for diet slip-ups the rest of the day. Watch this short video for some healthy morning meal ideas from fitness expert Jennifer Nicole Lee.
