New Year’s Resolution Healthy Eating Tips:
When the New Year rolls around, New Year’s resolutions often come with it. Setting goals for new and improved behaviors has been a popular trend for years. Resolutions can be big or small, but for most, they tend to center around diet, exercise and appearance. Going to the gym more, eating a healthier diet, drinking more water, eating less sugar, etc.- all with the end goal of *drum roll* weight loss!

There’s nothing wrong with wanting to lose weight, but living a healthy lifestyle means more than just focusing on the number on the scale. And in case you’ve never tried it, changing multiple habits in one day is not easy (and very rarely successful long-term). So what’s a better way to go about setting your personal health goals for the New Year?

Here’s a few of my top tips:
1. Set SMART goals:
a. S- Specific. Set a goal that is clear and specific. Knowing what you want to accomplish, why, and how, is important. Don’t be too specific about your goal weight, though- your weight is just a number. Focus more on how you feel!
b. M- Measureable. Having a measureable goal helps you to track your progress and stay positive and motivated!
c. A- Achievable. Don’t set a goal that’s too large and overwhelming. It needs to be realistic and attainable, otherwise you may experience burnout.
d. R- Relevant. Is it worthwhile? Is it the right time? Does it align with your other goals? Make sure you know why your goal matters to you.
e. T- Time-based. Give yourself a deadline to work toward, while being flexible. This will help you to stay focused on your long-term goals. Set small short-term goals along the way to help you reach them.

2. Find your support group!
a. It’s important to have strong support. You don’t have to do everything alone! Having other to rely on and confide in will help you to reach your personal goals. Work with a friend, a trainer, a therapist, or a Registered Dietitian, depending on your specific goals!

3. Don’t fall for the fads.
a. Fad diet lurk everywhere, and promise extreme results (lose ten pounds in five days!) with limited effort- and lots of $$$. Drinking detox teas, purchasing expensive supplements or eliminating an entire food group isn’t the way to go. Fad diets don’t care about your long-term health and wellbeing. A healthy lifestyle includes movement along with a well-balanced diet.

If you have questions about setting realistic and attainable health goals for the New Year, contact Grand Valley State University’s Campus Dining to make an appointment with the Registered Dietitian!

Healthy Baking Swaps to Sweeten Your Holidays: Greek Culture
If your recipe calls for oil or sour cream, try replacing it with “a high-protein alternative such as Greek yogurt,” suggests Adriana. Not only will you get a protein boost, but Greek yogurt is a rich source of calcium, too. Just remember to go for the plain, non-flavored variety to avoid added sugars.

Conversion: It’s not always a one-to-one ratio, so this swap requires some experimenting. In general:

1 cup sour cream = 1 cup Greek yogurt
1 cup butter = ½ cup butter + ½ cup Greek yogurt
1 cup oil = ¾ cup Greek yogurt
1 cup heavy cream = ½ cup heavy cream + ½ cup Greek yogurt
PumpkinBONUS TIP: Attention quick bread and muffin lovers! Adding in vegetables (think grated zucchini and carrots, or pureed cooked pumpkin or sweet potato) is another way to up the nutrients in your baked goods. Look for specific recipes or try swapping them in like you would with mashed bananas.

Healthy Baking Swaps to Sweeten Your Holidays: Black Beans
Black Beans can white flour. They add protein and fiber, and they can also help make a recipe gluten-free. It works especially well in chocolate brownie recipes, helping you achieve a rich, velvety texture.

Conversion: Use 1 cup black bean purée (about one 15-ounce can, drained and rinsed) for 1 cup white flour.

Healthy Baking Swaps to Sweeten Your Holidays: Bananas
The natural sweetness of bananas means you can use less sugar. This switch works best in cookies, brownies, pancakes, and muffins.

Conversion: Use 1 cup mashed banana (the riper the better!) in place of 1 cup melted butter or oil.

Healthy Baking Swaps to Sweeten Your Holidays: AppleSauce
Sugar is the standard go-to for baked goods, but there are savvier ways to sweeten.
Unsweetened applesauce takes advantage of the naturally occurring sugar in apples. You won’t miss the processed white stuff, and, head to head, it has about 700 fewer calories per cup. Those are serious calorie savings.

Conversion: Use 1 cup unsweetened applesauce for 1 cup sugar. Note: With this swap you’ll need to fine-tune the amount of liquid in the recipe. Typically, reducing the liquid (milk, water, etc.) by ¼ cup will do the trick. If the recipe calls for no added liquid, there’s no need to adjust.
