Five Favorite (and Easy) Ways to Get Healthy

For many folks trying to get healthier, personal austerity programs don’t last. To keep excited and inspired, it’s better to focus on the fun side of healthy eating. Luckily, we have a host of resources designed to encourage delicious discoveries and culinary creativity.

After the indulgences of the holidays, it can be tempting to think of January as a time for cutting back, tightening the belt, blah, blah, blah…

In my experience, personal austerity programs don’t last. To keep myself excited and inspired, I prefer to focus on the fun side of healthy eating. Luckily, Whole Foods Market has a host of resources designed to encourage delicious discoveries and culinary creativity.

  1. Watch and learn.  What’s more fun than kicking back with a cooking video? The chefs at Whole Foods Market are dedicated to making healthy taste good, and their latest videos are chock full of expert kitchen tricks and quick and simple healthy recipes.

  2. Get plan happy. It’s so much easier to stick with healthy eating when you have a plan. Choose from our selection of meal plans and staying on track is simple and delicious! You’ll find recommendations of recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

  3. Look for the logo on the go-go. Sometimes, tasting is believing. Head over to our prepared foods section, and look for the Health Starts Here® logo on salad bar, hot bar and ready-to-eat offerings. It’s a great way to try something new, like subbing portabellos for lunch meat in this Portabello Avocado Wrap.

  4. Pack a snack. Let’s face it: life is better with snacks, and the five delicious varieties of Engine 2 Plant-Strong® Hummus give you lots of options for healthy snacks and meals. Unlike traditional hummus, Engine 2 Plant-Strong® hummus is made without extracted oils, and it’s low in fat and sodium. Scoop it up with your favorite fresh veggies or make a wrap with an Engine 2 Plant-Strong® tortilla.

  5. Be social. Share your healthy eating ideas, successes, tips, favorites, and even challenges tagged with #healthyeah. Also, take a minute to check out what others have posted.  You’re sure to find something to inspire you, and you might just help someone else on their own path to healthy eating!
