A Healthier You for the New Year : Keep that resolution for a Healthy New You this 2018 with these tips from Electrolux Philippines

The New Year is usually the time when we resolve to start living a healthier lifestyle, especially after indulging during the holiday season. But resolutions are easier said than done – just as gym memberships rise at the start of the year, they tend to drop off after a few months. 



Promising that you will start eating and living healthy is easy but actually doing it long term is much harder. So how can we make it easier to commit to a healthy new you? Electrolux is here to give us a few tips on how we can get started on that healthier lifestyle – and stick to it!

Get someone on board 

Get someone close to you to join you in your workouts and diets - like a friend, relative or your husband. The company will make it more fun and you’ll have someone to bond with over the process. Having a support system is one way to keep you on track when it comes to your goals. 



Start Small

Overdoing things in the beginning, especially if this is your first time trying to eat healthy or doing regular exercise, will make changes hard to maintain. Start with small changes in your diet, like incorporating vegetables in your regular meals. Slowly remove processed food from your refrigerator and cabinets. Start with short jogging sessions once a week then gradually increase in frequency. Eventually, you will get more comfortable as these small tasks turn into habits. This is your cue to go a level higher in your diet and workouts.

Begin your day with protein

You’ve most likely heard of the saying “breakfast is the most important meal of the day”. Time to listen to it as doing so is proven to lessen cravings and hunger pangs throughout the day, so you’ll be less tempted to indulge in carbs and sugary food. 

Start with 25-30 grams of protein for breakfast every day. Some healthy ingredients you can include in your morning meals are fruits, vegetables, eggs, and sweet potatoes. Try mixing oats with yoghurt and your choice of fruits and leaving them overnight in the freezer or be adventurous with more unusual ingredients like peanut butter and jelly oats. 

For a more savoury meal you can create a sweet potato, black bean, and egg white breakfast burrito. Just wrap everything together and you have a quick, easy and healthy meal.


Load up on fruits and vegetables

A diet that involves more fruit and vegetable intake is always recommended. Keep in mind that your body still requires protein, so what you can do is add more vegetables to meat-based dishes. Make beef and broccoli stir-fry or prepare a turkey taco lettuce wrap that uses lettuce as a substitute for taco shells. Another idea is adding fruits, egg, or a little meat to salads to add more flavor or create your own protein shake using various fruits. 

You can also opt to eat fruits or veggies for snacks instead of the usual chips, cookies, chocolates, and other processed food. If you want more flavor, eat your veggie slices with guacamole or spinach dips.
Ensure you’ll always have a ready stash of fresh fruits and vegetables with the Electrolux NutriFresh Inverter Refrigerator. It’s equipped with the FreshShield Crisper, which has a unique tight seal that keeps temperatures stable, minimizes water loss and provides higher humidity, which allows fruits and vegetables to stay market-fresh for up to 7 days.

It also attracts and absorbs stray odors as well and eliminates 99.8% of bacteria through its FreshTaste Deodorizer.
