New Year’s has come and gone but the struggle to keep up with your 2017 resolutions has just begun. Many of us have vowed to eat healthier, live healthier and make our overall health a priority. GOOD IDEA! The new year is time for fresh starts so let’s make it happen in 2017! I’ve got some great products, tool and tips that will keep you on track and set you up for success.
Eat Well. Drink Well. Feel Well
I was super excited when I came across Muuna Cottage Cheese. Muuna has completely re-imagined how we think about…well…cottage cheese! They have introduced a line of single serve, melt-in-your-mouth cottage cheeses that can be enjoyed either at home or on the go.
These are high protein snack options, with 15 grams of protein, that can help sustain energy and keep everyone in the family full. My kids and I LOVE the real pieces of fruit on the bottom of each container. There are 5 delicious fruit flavors: pineapple, blueberry, strawberry, mango and peach. As a mom I love that there are no artificial flavors and Muuna as their own proprietary recipes.
This is such a versatile snack it’s great for breakfast, lunch or dinner. You can discover all the great fruit flavors at Muuna.com
As a family, one of our resolutions is to avoid sugary beverages which I like to call empty calories and instead drink more water than ever before.I’ve found a great, healthy new option that can help all of us stay away from sugary beverages and keep our diets on track in 2017.
I’ve fallen in love with the True Citrus company and their family of delicious, clean-labeled, citrus-based products that contain NO artificial sweeteners, flavors, preservatives, sodium or gluten.
True Citrus gives you the option on how you want to flavor your water. Use True Lemon and True Lime 0-calorie, unsweetened lemon and lime sachets to add flavor to your water without adding extra calories and while tasting just like a real lemon and lime. True Lemon and True Lime unsweetened sachets and delicious lemonades and limeades help people keep true to a healthy lifestyle, in the New Year and 365 days of the year.
Two favorites I have are the 10-calorie True Lemon Lemonades and True Lime Limeades, recognized by the Women’s Choice Award as a “9 out of 10” customer recommended brand for low-calorie lemonade and limeade mixes.
And to help get you started this year, True Citrus is partnering with Kim Lyons, former trainer on the NBC’s The Biggest Loser, to launch the New Year, True You 30-challenge and sweepstakes. The fabulous challenge will motivate people to live a healthy lifestyle and Stay True in the New Year and 24/7/365. In conjunction with the challenge, True Citrus is also launching a sweepstakes where one person and a guest will win a round-trip airfare to Hermosa Beach, California, two-night stay at a luxury hotel, spa service, a daily per diem of $250 each and a personal training session with Kim Lyons.

Healthy Happy You!
We all know that January is peak cold and flu season, regardless of where you are or how the weather is. That mean runny noses and red noses.
In my family we sooth and moisturize our sore noses with Saline Soothers and Boogie Wipes. These are a great gentle wipe, made with natural saline that can help get you through the most difficult cold or allergy attack.They really are the perfect solution for soothing and moisturizing a sore nose, using natural saline, aloe, chamomile and Vitamin E.
These helpful wipes can be found in the cough and cold aisle in your local Walgreens or Rite Aid!
Think About Your Eyes
Most people know that they should visit their dentist annually for healthy teeth. Yet many of the same people put off going to the eye doctor because they don’t recognize how important an annual eye exam is for maintaining clear vision and overall health.
I love the work that Think About Your Eyes is doing to raise eye health awareness. They are a national public awareness campaign focused on educating everyone about the importance of vision health and the need for annual eye exams. I never knew that uncorrected impaired vision is the most widespread, unaddressed disability, yet 80% of all visual impairment in correctable.
With the New Year underway, it’s an ideal time to get back to healthy habits and even create new ones. An annual eye exam is important for overall wellness for children and adults and is a great health habit to start in 2017.
If you’d like more information – ThinkAboutYourEyes.com is a great resource to learn more about vision health and to find a trusted eye doctor near you!
Happy New Year everyone! Wishing everyone a healthy and happy 2017!
