New Year, New You
Ellie Wilson, MS, RDN Senior Nutritionist
Happy New Year!
The New Year is a time for a fresh start, and many people put their energy into wellness for their families and themselves. Making a plan is usually easier than sticking to it, but we want to help you find success, and offer some solutions highlighted by New Year, New You shelf tags throughout the store.
If more veggies are on your list, Fresh Express salads makes quick work of a salad for lunch or dinner. Add Tyson’s Grilled and Ready Chicken to round it out with some lean protein – a meal in less than 5 minutes that leaves you plenty of time for the gym. Another way to up the ante on vegetables and a secret weapon for weight loss is to sub soup for your sandwich. Well, Yes! Soups from Campbell’s are all new varieties that combine plant proteins, like white beans and lentils, with roasted chicken, whole grains, and vegetables in savory broth. Add them to your menu plan and keep one in your desk for busy days as a back-up plan.
Breakfast is key to high energy and focus in the morning. In the Dairy case, find the shelf tags on 64 oz. Silk beverages or So Delicious Almond milk – they are a tasty base for breakfast smoothies. Pop the frozen Jimmy Dean Frittata in the microwave, and round it out with some delicious cut fruit from the Produce department. On the go, Muuna Cottage Cheese has some great flavors (MMMMango!) that travel well and are packed with 15 grams of protein, pieces of fruit and calcium.
There is more in the store – find the New Year, New You shelf tags in the dairy, sports drinks and cereal/granola bars aisles. Enjoy a happy, healthy New Year!
