Come New Year and everyone is enthusiastic to bring some major changes to their lifestyle. Whether it is eating healthy, exercising regularly, or losing weight, there’s a lot that we plan to do with the onset of a New Year. However, our commitment to these goals decreases slowly within a month or two. This is the reason why you need to make a small and realistic change to your daily routine. Break your large and daunting resolutions into smaller and achievable goals so that you can follow them religiously. Here are 5 healthy eating resolutions you can stick to this New Year.
Resolution 1: Start your Day with Lemon Water
Starting your day with a cup of tea or coffee can do more harm than good. Caffeine on an empty stomach is a big no-no. Start your day with a glass of warm water. As drinking plain water is boring, you can also add a slice of lemon. This not only makes the water more flavourful but also has certain nutritional properties. Lemon water is a great source of vitamin C, which helps in digestion and detoxifies your body. Make sure the water you drink is free from contaminants
Resolution 2: Drink Herbal Tea Instead of Coffee
Working without a cup of coffee or tea seems impossible. However, excessive caffeine can lead to a number of health problems and disturb your sleep cycle. Instead of drinking endless cups of coffee, you can switch to herbal teas. Keep a box of herbal teas in your drawer so that you don’t have an excuse to drink coffee. Herbal teas are loaded with antioxidants, boost your metabolism and fight free radicals to keep you safe from a number of diseases. With KENT Electric Kettle, you can easily prepare herbal tea with ease whether you are in the office or at home.
Resolution 3: Increase Your Fiber Intake
Getting enough fiber is extremely important as it prevents cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, and different types of cancer. In addition, eating more fiber also helps you lose some weight. Eating whole grains is one of the easiest ways to include fiber in your diet. Quinoa, brown rice, and whole grains are some of the food items that you can include in your diet to increase fiber intake.
Resolution 4: Avoid Sugar As Much As Possible
White sugar is very harmful to your health. Eliminating sugar from your diet can work wonders for your health. However, leaving sugar completely is impossible. This is the reason why you need to take small steps to eliminate sugar from your diet. Being with replacing your after-lunch dessert with healthy fruit.
Resolution 5: Snack Healthy
Lastly, if you can’t work without munching on some snacks, you need to switch to healthy snacking. Fill your drawer with nuts, dark chocolate, and fruits, so that you avoid junk snacks, which are one of the main reasons for excessive weight gain. If you like fried snacks, you can use KENT Air Fryer to prepare oil-free and healthy snacks.
Resolution 6: Drink a lot of Water

Look out for the signs of dehydration to ensure that you drink enough water. Make sure you drink clean water that is free of contaminants that can lead to a number of waterborne diseases. Installing an RO purifier will help you remove different kinds of contaminants from water and make it safe for consumption.

Fruits are loaded with a number of essential nutrients, which is the reason why it is essential to include a plateful of fruits in your diet every day. This New Year makes sure you have one helping of fruits to stay healthy. However, before you eat any fruit, make sure you wash the fruits using KENT Fruit and Vegetable Cleaner.
