There’s nothing better than starting off the New Year on the right foot, especially when it comes to the goal of being fit for the year. You can start this by taking a well-needed trip to the supermarket and cleaning the entire kitchen off any junk food.
For being healthy and fit, you must have a balanced diet and must exercise and keep the body active. As food forms an important component of being fit, we have written about the must-have pantry items to stock up your kitchen with to get healthy and fit!
Low fat or non-fat Greek Yoghurt is an excellent source of calcium and potassium. The thick, creamy yoghurt contains almost half the sugar of normal yoghurt and can be substituted in the meal. With around 17 grams of protein per serving you can easily take this with a meal, or add a fruit to form a sweet snack!
Fruits and Vegetables
A healthy diet always starts with the foundation. Fruits and veggies! Rich in vitamins and minerals they help with reducing obesity, heart disease and diabetes. You can stock the kitchen with potatoes, onions, garlic, lemon and tomatoes, and additionally buy apples and oranges to fill the stomach and provide enough calories to the body.
Nuts! A brilliant and filling food item which can be taken anywhere to consume as a snack. Of course, portion size does matter. But you can eat anything from almonds, cashews to walnuts and pistachio to get the necessary fat and important minerals like vitamin B & E and magnesium. Chew away!
Have a good start and continue to keep your goal of becoming fit in this New Year.
