I’m a huge fan of YouTube.
It’s common to find me on YouTube either laughing at movie outtakes or crying at dog rescue videos. I might be singing out loud to the Alicia Keys station or learning about an unbelievable idea on the Ted Talk channel.
But more often than not, you’ll find me searching for how-to cooking hacks or recipe technique examples. I look for at-home workouts and ways to get organized, motivated and inspired. (Yep, it’s all there!) I guess you could say I use YouTube to help me meet my health and wellness goals.
So when my friends at Meta sent me this YouTube link to the Broken Resolution Blues video, I clicked it immediately.
It’s a funny take on what happens when we start the year with good intentions but somehow go awry….hummmm…..sound familiar? (I love the part when the guy offers the musician a bit of pizza)
Did you know that studies show that 35% of people who start the year with resolutions/goals wind up breaking them by the end of January (NOW!), and only 23% of those folks see it through to completion. (link to study)
Listen, I don’t want you to become a statistic.
So, how do those of us who set resolutions and goals actually keep them?
Keep. It. Simple.
Let’s start with a goal I know many are shooting for this year. Breakfast.
Hands down, one of the easiest ways to get a healthy breakfast in is by utilizing the very versatile, very popular and very user-friendly smoothie.
There’s no question that some smoothies are healthier than others. But, in general, it’s simple to make a healthy, filling, nutritious shake first thing in the morning. The trick is to have the ingredients ON HAND every day…which means you might have to do just a bit of meal planning AND get yourself to the store.
If you’re asking yourself “how do I build the perfect smoothie?” don’t worry. I’ve got you covered.
Looks pretty darn good, right? Well, I’ve got another healthy tip for you.
In need of more fiber? The recommended amount of fiber is 25-35 grams per day for adults —we’re only consuming about half that amount. The simplest way to boost your fiber intake is by adding Metamucil to your morning smoothies. Metamucil helps you feel less hungry between meals* as well as helps to promote and maintain digestive health.*
Here’s the takeaway on keeping your breakfast resolution:
- Keep it simple
- Have smoothie ingredients on hand
- Add Metamucil to increase fiber in your diet
Three steps. That’s it! All doable and all for your health and the health of your family.
