One of the biggest New Year’s resolutions people make is the promise to eat healthy and lose weight. While some decide to start fad diets that are expensive and potentially harmful to your health, the smarter choice is to restock your fridge with better food options. These are some great New Year fridge food swaps to help you improve your eating habits just in time for the NFL Playoffs.
When you sit down to watch your team’s big game, we bet you’re going to want to smother some chicken wings with ranch, blue cheese dressing, or buffalo sauce. Sadly, these condiments are seriously high in calories. Swap them out for healthier, still-delicious options like chili sauce, seasoning blends, and vinegar sauces.
Bench sugary, high-calorie sodas and hydrate like Odell Beckham Jr. does – with a cool, crisp glass of water. You can figure out how much water to drink by dividing your weight in two and consuming that number of ounces of water each day. Drinking enough water is essential to helping your body function and maintaining a healthy weight. Do you think Tom Brady is able to play the way he does by drinking Diet Coke every day? (Answer: Probably not.)
There is not a single NFL player who got to where he is by eating frozen meals. Even meals that are labeled as “healthy” are loaded with sodium, preservatives, and artificial ingredients. You won’t be able to achieve any weight loss if you eat these. Aim to prepare and freeze homemade meals once a week or month for a healthy option that lets you get back to watching your favorite players.
Ice cream seems like a great way for you and your family to celebrate a big win, but those treats are packed full of fat. Instead, “go for two”, and choose whole fruit sorbets. You can even kick it up a notch and make your own sorbet by freezing fruits and blending them until smooth. We bet that’s how your MVP will celebrate so he keeps himself in perfect shape.
You may think it will be hard to lose weight during the playoffs, but these easy fridge food swaps will help make your game time healthier than past seasons. Keep the swaps going for the rest of the year, and you can have the same muscle mass as a QB in no time.
