It’s a proven phenomenon that big lifestyle and diet resolutions rarely work, and one of the main reasons for that is the all-or-nothing mindset. As it turns out, putting a ton of pressure on ourselves to break ingrained habits and go cold turkey on things isn’t a recipe for success.

To make some changes to your lifestyle and start creating some healthy eating habits, don’t throw out all your treat food and start trying to make falafel from scratch just yet. Small, attainable goals are the key: things you can achieve easily and consistently. Building these small habits will make bigger changes easier, and you’ll be proving to yourself that you can do it, too!

Meatless Mondays

Cutting down on meat is good for you and the planet, and you don’t have to say goodbye to Steak Saturday to find a happy middle ground. Start by committing to one meatless meal per week – it doesn’t even have to be a Monday!

Fitfood’s plant-based range of meals are nutritious, delicious, and couldn’t be more fuss-free; this is easing you in with a capital E.

Exchange the white for the wheat

Maybe you have a weakness for white bread, white rice or white pasta – you’re certainly not alone. We’re not saying you have to renounce the gluteny deliciousness forever – comfort foods are comforting for a reason – but a good place to start is swapping at least one of the three in your pantry for the wholewheat version.

Don’t skip breakfast

You know what they say – and whether it’s the most important meal of the day or not, starting the day off empty and hungry is a sure-fire path to more energy slumps and more snacking as your body tries to fuel itself. If you’re not a breakfast person, try a smoothie or a homemade breakfast bar to get in the fruits, vegetables and protein to keep you going.

Did you know Fitfood has a breakfast menu? Our Mozarella, Spinach & Salsa Verde Omelette or Tomato Relish, Feta & Spinach Omelette are protein-packed for plenty of slow-release energy. Or try the Berry Granola for a hint of sweetness and grab-and-go convenience.
