Wellness New Years Resolutions

One of the most common New Year resolutions is to improve our health in one way or another. From losing weight to reducing cholesterol and/or blood pressure to simply eating healthier or exercising more, most resolutions are related to heath. If your resolutions are health related, we can be a partner in your health.

To eat more nutritious foods, checkout our Living Well Shopping List. This shopping list will guide you through the aisles and help you select the healthier options.

If you have a health condition or would like information on a special diet, checkout our Special Diets page (https://www.shopfamilyfare.com/content/special-diets). Many special diets are explained, but if you have a specific health or nutrition question, email the Living Well team at [email protected]

Another way we can support your new year’s goals, is that we invite you to walk in our stores. When shopping, try parking a little further away from the door and walk up and down each aisle, even if you do not need items from those aisles, to increase your steps. Walking in the supermarket can be excellent exercise!

These resources will put you on the right track to achieve your health and wellness goals.

One food to highlight that supports almost all health and wellness goals is oats. Additionally, January is Oatmeal Month, so the perfect time to incorporate oats into your diet! Oats are a complex carbohydrate that is an excellent source of energy and contain fiber which helps keep blood sugar steady and reduce the bad, LDL cholesterol. Oats can be enjoyed warm as oatmeal or as an ingredient in a variety of dishes. Oats can also be incorporated into desserts such as in pie crust or cookies.

To kick off the new year, try this delicious recipe for homemade Veggie Tots (https://www.shopvgs.com/recipes/veggie-tots)! A simple way to incorporate oats is to use oats in place of bread crumbs in recipes such as meatloaf or veggie tots.

Happy healthy eating this New Year!
