How To Stick To Your Health Resolutions This Year

It’s that time of year again—resolution season. 

As we all know, it can be tough to stick to resolutions, especially wellness goals. Whether you are looking to lose weight, be more active, get stronger, or simply feel healthier this year, we want to make that journey easier for you. 

Here are some of our top ideas to help you create habits that last.

Ask someone to keep you accountable

Goals are always more manageable when you’re working toward them with someone else. This year identify a person in your life who would be comfortable keeping you accountable to your resolutions. Then, fill them in on your plan and discuss how they can help you stay on track. Your buddy could be a friend who helps by joining your workouts, or a partner who shares the load by cooking healthy meals. Invite your loved ones to be part of your team and together you can determine a strategy that works for you.

Keep the house stocked with healthy natural foods

When there is nothing in the fridge, it can be tempting to surrender to cravings. But if you keep the cupboards stocked with healthy snack options, you’ll be much less likely to stray from your diet. To ensure that you feel full longer, be sure to select foods that contain whole grains and good fats. And of course, make sure your fridge is full of plenty of fruits and vegetables. 

Set reasonable goals

At this time of year, it can be tempting to make bold, ambitious plans for your health. But if you create goals that are not realistic for your life, you’re just setting yourself up for disappointment. Establish resolutions that you can reasonably achieve this year. They can still be ambitious, but you should ensure that they are possible within the limits of your schedule and your lifestyle.

Measure your progress

Keeping track of the progress you’re making can help you stay motivated—especially when you’re tempted to throw in the towel. Once you’ve set your wellness goals, determine the best way to measure your success and track it on a chart. Then, keep your tracker somewhere handy—like on the fridge—so you have a visible reminder of your progress.

Integrate activity into your routine

It’s not always easy to fit regular exercise into our busy lives. However, on days where you can’t fit in a full workout, there are plenty of other ways to add small amounts of activity into your routine. If you need to take a trip to the store, walk it instead of driving. If you’re spending time with your kids, make it an active outdoor game. There are countless ways to get your body moving throughout the day without hitting the gym.

Remember your why

Whenever you’re feeling like giving up, stay motivated by reminding yourself why you’re doing it. If you’re considering skipping your workout or giving up your healthy diet, take a moment to remember what led you to create those goals in the first place. That moment of reflection might be exactly what you need to get back on track.

Healthier Apple Pie

Gathering around the dinner table for any fall occasion just doesn’t seem as sweet if it doesn’t finish off with a delicious slice of apple pie. This autumn classic has been shared and loved for decades, and though it is a favourite, it is not necessarily the healthiest option. By making these simple swaps, you can feel free to indulge in a slice or two without all of the guilt!

There are several different variations on this classic and quintessential fall favourite. One of the easiest swaps that you can make for a healthier apple pie is the sugar. There is quite a large amount of sugar in a traditional apple pie recipe, so by reducing the amount used or even the kind of sugar, you can significantly decrease the sweetness in this dessert. Try using a sugar alternative such as maple syrup or agave for added sweetness with lower sugar content. 

Another simple way to make a healthier apple pie is to make it with a whole wheat crust. By swapping out regular white flour for whole wheat flour, you can make a much healthier crust with not much taste difference. Whole wheat flour will still give you a delicious and flaky crust to support the decadent apple filling.

A final simple swap that you can make when serving apple pie is dairy-free ice cream. There are several delicious choices on the market that make great alternatives to regular dairy ice cream. This is a great way to appeal to a larger group who may have dairy sensitivities or allergies. There are also really great options for alternative whipped cream, so if you prefer whipped cream to ice cream, you can even try a coconut alternative. 

By making these small and simple changes to the original recipe, you can turn an autumn and thanksgiving favourite into a new and healthier tradition for years to come!

Healthier Apple Crisp

One of the many delicious autumnal treats to savour and enjoy this fall season is apple crisp. Although it is a sweet treat, it is not necessarily nutritious, so why not make a few easy swaps for a healthier alternative to this autumn classic. 

There are several different ways to make healthy swaps in this recipe. The recipe’s foundation includes apples that are already healthy on their own, so by using sugar alternatives to make the topping, you can easily make this dessert a little bit healthier. Apple crisp can be made with various options to make it completely gluten and dairy-free if that is what you desire. By making simple changes to the original recipe, you can create a dessert that can be enjoyed by all!

Oat topping 

You can use old-fashioned oats to make the crisp and crumbly topping which eliminates the use of refined flour, making the topping a lot healthier. Also, altering the amount of topping used, with more apple to crisp ratio, can make this dessert a healthier option.

Sugar 

Original apple crisp recipes usually call for a large amount of sugar. However, this can easily be replaced with maple syrup or even agave to add a healthy sweetness and a lower sugar level. Also, adding maple syrup instead of sugar gives this dessert an even more autumnal flavour and may make this a new favourite swap!

Butter 

Instead of using butter in this recipe, try swapping for coconut oil. This is a great alternative and a much healthier option to using regular butter. Most apple crisp recipes do not call for a large amount of butter, so this is a quick and easy switch to make that will provide a healthier alternative. 

By making these simple changes to the original recipe, you may just find a new favourite way to enjoy this sweet and delicious autumn dessert. Why not try serving this as a healthy thanksgiving dessert to follow that fantastic turkey dinner!
