"New Year, New Me!" is the slogan of every January in the last 5 years. Whether your goal is to not huff and puff as much when playing with the kids, being able to balance yourself well in a yoga class, or fit into those skinny jeans, we've all got wellness goals for 2020!
If you thought choosing your goal was the hard part, try actually sticking to it. Not all of us can happily get out of bed at 4 AM for a gym session or have the energy to go to a spin class after work. So, what's the secret then to staying inspired?
To put it simply: food. It's the first thing on my mind every morning, "What am I going to eat today?" (after chugging my coffee, of course!). Here are three recipes that I constantly keep on rotation for my wellness goals:
This recipe is for the 4 AM workout people, and those that run a bit late from beauty sleep. Sure it's a berry smoothie, yes, but not in the way you imagine. Instead of blending and immediately drinking, you pour the contents into an ice tray for an overnight stay. Drop the cubed smoothie bits into a tumbler the next morning, and it will melt into a cool, refreshing treat by the time you're finished driving. Easy + Convenient + Tasty = win, win, win! Never worry about what you're having for breakfast again.
Sometimes, we just crave Chick-fil-A. The friendly remarks, smell of waffle fries... oh, and the super long drive-through lanes! Skip this temptation zone and bring the red arches to your kitchen with this Chick-fil-A Market Berry Salad Dupe. All of these textures from berries to nuts to apples make for a flavor profile that will keep your taste buds guessing! No more boring, bland meat and veggies for us.
Skip the bag of chips for these homemade snack bars inspired by LARABAR! Not only can they be made ahead of time, they're also a sweet snack that will keep you going during those gym classes. People will be asking where you bought these from!
