Healthy Habits for the New Year
We know that New Year’s resolutions can be tricky and daunting, but we’ve got 5 simple habits to help you ring in the New Year and keep you happy and healthy in 2022!
Eat More Fruits and Veggies Together
Establishing healthy eating habits is easier when you have a friend to support you and keep you accountable. Having someone to share recipes and plan meals with makes trying new fruits and veggies fun and keeps your menus fresh. Our Refer-A-Friend program makes it simple to get friends on board. When you sign up for our organic produce delivery service, you will receive a unique promo code. When your friends and family sign up using your code, you will receive a $25 credit to your account, and they will receive $15 off their first box. Your code never expires, and you can share it with as many people as you’d like.
Ahh, snacking. We all do it! It’s difficult not to when you’re on the go and don’t have time to sit down to a healthy lunch. But snacks don’t have to make you feel guilty later! Replace processed finger foods with natural snacks that are high in protein and healthy fats, and pack a lot of flavor like Organic Whisky Spice Walnuts from Old Dog Ranch . Toss candy aside for flavor-packed dried fruits that provide the sweet treat you’re after along with vitamins and fiber, like Organic Apple Chips from Lamb Farm Kitchen. Add them to your delivery when you customize your box! And if fresh fruits and veggies are more your style, our Organic Snack Pack box is also perfect for grab-and-go snacking.
Need a way to pack nutrient-dense foods into your busy schedule? Give juicing a try! No juicer? No problem. The recipes will work great in your blender, too. Ready to try your own combinations? Just adhere to an 80/20 ratio of vegetables to fruits to keep sugar in check, and get to experimenting! Add more of your favorite fruits and veggies for juicing to your delivery when you customize your box.
Get Some Rest
It’s no secret that getting enough rest at night helps your mind and body reset and de-stress, but sometimes it’s difficult to relax once your head hits the pillow. Lavender to the rescue! Some say it has the ability to relieve stress, improve mood, and promote restful sleep. Use some of this Lavender Soothing Salve from ElizabethW on your temples and pulse points to inspire rest and relaxation.
Put it on Ice
You may already prep fruits and veggies for grab-and-go snacks, but have you ever thought about prepping and freezing them to add to your meals throughout the week? This works great for veggies that take a little more time clean and prep like leeks, or to peel and chop, like winter squash. Just be sure to place your cut produce in a single layer on a sheet pan, freeze, and then portion and package in the storage containers of your choice. Check out the whole process here. Feeling a little more ambitious? Take it a step further by preparing and freezing purees and broths, like our Root to Stalk Broth, for use in soups, sauces, or other recipes.
