Little steps towards a healthier you in 2018

Whether you are setting New Year resolutions for yourself or not, this time of year often has us reflecting on what we can improve upon. Healthy living is all about choices, some big ones and lots of little ones. Most of us could look to make improvements in our diets or find a few minutes to be active outdoors. Since it is easier to make small changes, here’s 30 little steps towards a healthier you in 2018. 

  1. Add one extra fruit or vegetable to one meal a day
  2. Swap to lean meat, chicken or fish
  3. Eat more fresh food
  4. Eat naturally colourful meals
  5. Swap a serving of red meat with seafood to your diet each week, especially oily fish such as salmon, tuna or sardines
  6. Swap high for low GI foods, kumara for potato, cherries for ripe bananas etc.
  7. Increase your fibre with wholemeal options of bread, pasta and brown rice
  8. Try nuts as a snack
