I wouldn't really describe this as a "New Year's Resolution" since I've been trying to make healthier eating choices for a few years now, but it does seem like the perfect time of year to renew those decisions.
I made the switch to decaf tea a couple of months ago, and it has made a marked difference in how I feel. I used to have trouble with waking up a lot in the middle of the night, and that has significantly decreased since I stopped consuming caffeine in the evenings. Plus, decaf tea counts as water technically, so I can switch out a couple of glasses of water a day which makes me a happy camper!
My two favorite blends of decaf are Tazo Decaf Chai, and Good Earth Sweet and Spicy blend. Yum!
I've also started including a lot more veggies in my meals. I used to fill up on carbs like pasta and bread, but I've found that helping myself to more vegetables instead helps fill me up without packing on the pounds. One of my go-to lunches lately has been frying up an egg (with a butter substitute, of course) in a slice of green pepper and eating it with arugula. SO good. I haven't decided what to call it yet, for now DELICIOUS will suffice.
How about you? Have you found a "healthier" food choice lately that you love? What about tea- do you have any favorite blends? I'm all ears (or eyes, I guess, in this case...).
