Turning over a new leaf this New Year's Day

With a new year comes new resolutions. Like so many others, your resolutions may include eating healthier individually, as a family or in your office environment. From fruit and nut selections to lean meat options, you can achieve your goals while still eating delicious foods.

Healthy eating can be made simpler when you pair your health routine with Hickory Farms and the gourmet gift baskets you know and love. By following the below tips for healthy eating, you can get one step closer to your health and lifestyle goals:

* Start your day with a lean protein, a gourmet sausage like Hickory Farms’ turkey summer sausage, to help fill you up and pair it with a fresh fruit salad made with in-season produce.

* As a mid-morning snack, mix dried fruits, a selection of nuts and a small amount of chocolate candies together to help get you to the lunch break.

* When noon rolls around, top a salad with diced ham to keep you full throughout the afternoon.

* For your mid-afternoon break, have an easy-to-eat piece of fruit on hand that you can eat while on your way to a meeting or running errands.

* Dinner time is calling, and nothing will satisfy you more than a lean protein option, like chicken or turkey, paired with a whole grain and green vegetable.

* For dessert, treat yourself with a petit four or small slice of fudge for a sweet treat to end your day.

Keep your resolutions going throughout the year

Maintaining your healthy resolutions after the beginning of the year can be tough, but with a little bit of meal planning and determination, you’ll start to see results and feel great about your hard work.
