It's the New Year and most of us make resolutions we know we can’t live up to.

Blood OrangesThis year, try to make one or two resolutions you can realistically achieve. Try one or all of these healthy resolutions for the New Year.

Eat five fresh fruits and vegetables everyday; Studies prove you will feel better and stay healthier when you eat fresh fruits and vegetables. Take fruits and vegetables along as a snack instead of "junk food". It's easy and you'll notice a difference. Melissa's makes it easy with so many items to choose from. Dried Fruits, fresh Blood Oranges or Kumquats are easy and delicious! Try them and you will see how easy it can be.

Add TOFU to your diet. Tofu is a great substitute instead of meat. Add it to sauces, stir fries, soups, or make delicious drinks. Tofu can help reduce cholesterol and is high in fiber. Melissa's has several products to make this easy: Soyrizo, Soy Taco, Soy Slices, Roasted Soy Nuts and more. Check out our Product Catalog section for all the details.

Substitute meat alternatives for your hot dogs, bacon, ground round, lunchmeat, and more. You'll be pleasantly surprised at the flavor and how these products help reduce your fat intake. Our Soy Ground is delicious!

Blackeyed PeasDrink 8 glasses of water daily. Try drinking a glass of water before a meal and you will get full faster... and possibly take off a couple pounds without even trying! Keep a water bottle with you, so when you get the urge to snack, take a drink! There are so many delicious flavored waters out there so it will make it even easier! (Just make sure you get the ones that are not carbonated or full of sugar!)

Walk around the block once or twice a day. This is an excellent habit to get into. You will be surprised at how much better you will feel.

To start off 2011, prepare some Melissa’s good luck Blackeyed Peas. Our new steamed, ready-to-use packages make them so easy…Try our easy recipes for a healthy, Happy New Year.
