The month of December was all about gatherings with friends and family to celebrate the holidays. With the holidays came food, lots of food, you may have eaten more (or drank more) than you intended, or ate out more than you would have liked. With December behind us it is time to jump into January with some positive mindsets and approaches. January is time to nourish and restore the body with important nutrients that may have been neglected during the holiday season.
In general, your body needs this time to nourish and restore. Healthy eating is not about getting rid of the foods you love and only eating fruits and vegetables. It is about getting variety in your diet and coming up with creative ways to include some of your favorite foods, with a healthier twist, and incorporating fruits and vegetables to these meals.
