Happy New Year!
The start of a new year is always a refreshing opportunity to refocus our goals and adopt healthier habits. In terms of our health and wellness, there is always room for improvement. Use this new year to become the healthiest and happiest version of yourself by following our top 5 tips:
1. Take your Vitamins… Consistently!
If you follow a diet of fresh, whole foods, then you probably get a lot of the vitamins and minerals that your body requires. However, even the healthiest person still has nutritional gaps in their diet that shouldn’t be ignored. Vitamin deficiencies can lead to a variety of symptoms, like low energy, fatigue, hair loss, muscle weakness, and more.
The easiest and most cost effective way to ensure that you are reaching the recommended daily value of essential vitamins is by taking a multivitamin. We suggest choosing multivitamins that are sourced from organic whole foods, like the ones by Garden of Life, Nutrigold, and Megafood.

Remember to be consistent with your multivitamins in order to notice the best results possible. Consider adding them into your morning routine so you never forget to take them!
2. Get Moving
The Mayo Clinic suggests that Americans get at least 150 minutes of aerobic activity and two strength training sessions per week. If that sounds daunting to you, we suggest trying a group fitness class. They are a fun and interactive way to work up a sweat and improve strength.

3. Practice Portion Control & Balanced Meals
Perhaps our most important tip for a healthier year is to learn portion control. There’s no shame in enjoying your favorite treats in moderation. Unfortunately, many of us tend to over-indulge and lose track of our goals over time.
If portion control and balance is something that you’ve been known to struggle with, we’ve got you covered with Fit Food Catering!

4. Take a Probiotic
Make your gut bacteria happy this year! A healthy gut can lead to better digestion, increased energy, fewer cravings, improved mood, healthy skin, and so much more. Probiotics are the microorganisms that live in our digestive tract. Antibiotics, a poor diet, and a number of other things can harm your gut bacteria, so it’s important to restore them. You can improve your gut health by eating probiotic-rich foods like kimchi and kombucha, or more easily by taking a high-quality probiotic supplement.

5. Take a Collagen Supplement
One of the biggest trends in the wellness community in 2019 was collagen, and there’s a reason for it. Collagen is great for bone health, joint lubrication, hair, skin & nails, digestion, and so much more.
Our best-selling collagen product is the Dr. Axe Multi Collagen. While many collagen products on the market only include one or two types of collagen, the Dr. Axe one contains all five types. It’s odorless, tasteless, and packed with nutritional benefits. Add a scoop to your morning coffee, use it in cooking or baking, or simply mix it with water.
