The holidays are over and the New Year has begun. We are now getting settled into our routines of work, errands, chores, and the basic day-to-day daily grind. I hope you have found the time to sit down and contemplate what you will work on in 2013. Is it eating healthier? Spending more time with your kids? Working out 5 days a week? Going back to school? MD? PHD? Whatever you find yourself wanting to improve: write it down, create a plan, and take action.
Below are 5 new and healthy food items to try/add/enjoy to help energize you for all that you plan to accomplish and work on in 2013.
Ground Flaxseed: Sprinkle on: salad, sliced banana, cereal and add to blender for smoothies
Shredded Coconut: add to trail mix
Walnut Butter (Whole Foods, Safeway-California)-eat it with: sliced banana, apple, pear, and celery.
Lemon Juice: mix with olive oil and use as salad dressing-try it atop spinach, walnuts, and chicken or shrimp.
Coconut oil: sauté butternut squash, zucchini, and shredded carrot.
What are your new finds? What are you digging right now? What on the list above intrigues you? Speak up and share.
