Happy, healthy New Year! Every January, I am asked to share the best ways to get started on a healthier lifestyle. My top picks are:
- Eat more seafood
- Eat more produce
- Drink more water
“More” is the key. Adding beneficial foods and practices is far easier than taking anything away, and more fun. Smart options throughout the store make it easy to keep your resolutions afloat and enjoy a great plate that is delicious and doable on your always busy days.
Enjoying seafood twice per week is a powerful first step. Meal maker solutions in the Seafood department include Pier 33 Ocean Raised™ Salmon. Frozen fresh, they will take you from tide to table quickly and easily. Single serving and family four packs are ready for dinner in less than 10 minutes! Add a fresh salad and you have upped the ante on both produce and water – water in produce is part of how we can improve water intake, a simple benefit bogo. Put salmon on the menu every week and you are half way to that two servings per week that are recommended by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the American Heart Association. Nourish your family and teach your children well with lifelong food habits that support their good health. This family- friendly Asian Ginger Broiled Salmon https://www.pricechopper.com/recipes#/8866 is a great fit for a busy night.
