About Today: 26 Delicious Ways to Get Healthy Now

If you can't see this email, click here


We're about halfway through January--are you still adhering to your New Year's resolutions? One of the most common promises that we make ourselves is to eat healthier and get to work melting off the blubbery coating we've accumulated by exclusively consuming pumpkin pie and egg nog for two straight months (with the occasional Baked Brie thrown in for good measure). Although you may feel like you'll miss these foods, the good news is that healthy food options for you and your kids are tastier and more plentiful than ever. Enjoy the guilt-free recipes below (we really think you will!) and join us this Friday for a special Google Hangout focused on Healthy Living. Want more from Food?

Great Greenery
This may seem like a no-brainer, but greens are definitely the way to go. Between cabbage, kale, and spinach, it's easy to find a salad base that suits your tastes (and all three are packed with vital nutrients for barely any caloric cost)--and that's not to mention Romaine, arugula, and butter lettuce. Plus, there's broccoli, peas, and Brussels sprouts, and no excuses not to eat your veggies when they can be prepared so many delightful ways.

Smooth Moves
Skip the bacon-and-eggs breakfast and sip on fresh juice or a healthy smoothie instead to cut down on fat and boost your energy. And no, a smoothie from the local strip-mall chain probably doesn't qualify as healthy (many are packed with added sugars). Instead, make your own smoothies at home from fresh fruit and plant milks, or if you're lucky enough to have a juicer, start your day with a nutrient-packed green juice.

Spoon Fed Success
A good rule of thumb when trying to shed unwanted weight is to start your day with a spoon and end with a spoon (in other words, try a low-sugar or sugar-free oatmeal or cereal recipe for breakfast and a veggie-packed soup for dinner). From Healthy Baked Oatmeal to Middle Eastern Split Pea Soup, you'll be eating so well you'll forget you're on a resolution.

Get Low, Get Low
Low-fat, low-cal, low-carb. Beware when these words appear on the labels of processed foods, but don't be afraid to do some home cookin' with these principles in mind. Being mindful of unnecessary fats, calories, and sugars doesn't have to hurt the flavor and quality of your food, and can actually steer you towards healthier eating habits in the future.
