New Year’s, Food, and You

December 23, 2014

Did you know that six of the 13 most popular New Year’s resolutions last year were related to leading a more healthy life?* Here’s another fact for you: Researchers are saying today’s generation is the most unhealthy in history.* Whoa! It’s no wonder that people are so motivated to be more health-conscious in the coming year!

If your New Year’s resolution is to eat healthier food, there are plenty of small changes you can make to get moving in the right direction.

First and foremost, before you start your resolution, remember: There’s no need to change your entire diet overnight. Instead, try changing your habits one at a time, week by week. For example: One week you can focus on drinking more water. Then, when you have that down as a habit, you can start adding more veggies to your meals. Over time, small habits really add up! Here are a few to think about.

Eat more greens. And yellows and reds and purples and… Put simply: Fill your plate with the colors of the rainbow. Want a covert way to get wholesome foods in? GO Veggie! is made from plant-sourced ingredients like soybeans, rice, potatoes and coconuts for nutritious deliciousness.

Get your nutrients. Vitamins and minerals are a must in any healthy diet. The good news: It’s easy to get them in! When you make cheesy choices like GO Veggie! Shreds, you’re getting 50 percent more calcium than regular cheese without sacrificing taste. Plus, you’re getting Vitamin A, D, B6 and E!

Reduce cholesterol and saturated fat. First, the bad news: Saturated fat and cholesterol in food are known for increasing the risk of disease. Now, for the silver lining: You won’t find them in GO Veggie! The best part of all: You still get all the ooey-gooey goodness of regular cheese. Yummmm.

Discover healthy recipes you love. A big part of healthy eating is finding nutritious food options you actually enjoy eating. (Because let’s be honest, no one wants to eat something that tastes like cardboard.) Don’t know where to turn? Try GO Veggie!’s kitchen!

Go on, make your New Year’s resolution easy with cheesy goals you can stick to!
