What is the best way to start off a new year? Well, the number one New Year’s Resolution around the world is ‘getting fit’ – but what does that actually entail? And how can you make that resolution a success that will last the entire year? For starters, pick a workout regimen that motivates, encourages, and inspires you. A program that offers a variety of moves, exercises, and that can be done in various locations such as at home, the park, or a gym; a workout like Tae Bo® Fitness.

To help ensure the success of your New Year’s Resolution, try adding the following ten foods to your diet. They are healthier than you think, providing you with additional health benefits and all while eating some of your all time favorite foods that you were previously told to avoid, such as:
- Avocado’s – They are one of the few produce items that contain fat. Their heart protecting monounsaturated fats actually make them healthy. Eating avocados can help lower your risk of heart disease and stroke.
- Spaghetti and Meatballs – This dish is packed with healthy benefits thanks to the iron and protein from the beef, lycopene from the tomato sauce and energy producing carbs from the pasta! But use caution! You have to stick to modest portions, lean beef and limit yourself to three ounces of meat and a cup of cooked pasta per serving. Pump up the healthy benefits by using whole-wheat pasta instead.
- Bananas – They are a ridiculously healthy fruit that can be enjoyed on the go. A small banana has the same calories, carbs, and fiber as an apple. Plus they are packed with Vitamin C, B6, and good for your heart potassium!
- Peanut Butter – Thirty percent of daily calories should come from healthy fats, which peanut butter is full of. It is also a good way to get protein, fiber, and Vitamin E. The same actually goes for whole nuts, such as almonds and walnuts, and whole nuts are easy to enjoy on the go!
- Coffee – Hail to the coffee lover in us all! Along with adding a little much needed pep to your step, you can avoid those feelings of consuming a guilty pleasure by remembering that your cup of java is full of antioxidants. Recent studies have linked drinking coffee to a decreased risk of type-2 diabetes and improved mental health during the natural aging process.
- Corn – One cup of corn kernels has five grams of protein, four grams of fiber, and energy-producing B Vitamins. Plus, you can eat corn in a variety of ways, such as polenta, tortillas, and popcorn.
- Burritos – If filled with vegetables, rice, beans and a small portion of meat – they are a very healthy choice! It is important to go with an eight-inch whole-grain tortilla and lay off of the sour cream and loads of cheese in order to keep the calories and fat intake in check.
- Chicken Thighs – Dark meat chicken has a bad rep for being fatty and artery clogging, but it is actually only the skin that you should be avoiding. Dark meat, like avocados, is high in healthy monounsaturated fats and they are usually half the price of chicken breasts.
- Eggs – According to the American Egg Board, healthy individuals can eat up to two eggs per day without significantly affecting blood cholesterol levels. Eggs are full of Vitamins A, D, and the antioxidant lutein. Remember, don’t skip the yolk, there is just as much protein there as in the whites.
- Potatoes – Another bad rep vegetable for its high starch content, however, potatoes are a nutrition powerhouse! A medium potato has one hundred and sixty five calories, five grams of fiber, four grams of protein, ten percent of your daily iron and seventy percent of your daily Vitamin C, plus they give off a ‘full feeling’ to help you curb those hunger pains.
