Diet Picks for 2018

Are you looking for some healthy, delicious foods to work into your repertoire this year? Well, I have some suggestions for you. I love these all equally and they are all becoming regular “participants” in my healthy lifestyle.

My first pick is Lifeway kefir. Kefir is a fermented beverage that tastes like liquid yogurt — only it’s way more loaded with probiotics. Lifeway Kefir has 12 live and active cultures. These probiotics may help regulate digestion and boost immunity.

Lifeway Kefir may help build healthy gut bacteria, which has long-lasting positive effects like improving your metabolism. It also contains bone-building calcium and is high in protein, which is great for your muscles. I recommend it for breakfast.

My second food pick is what I reach for when I’m having a snack attack: PopCorners, These are guilt-free chips, air-popped and delicious. They come in both sweet and spicy flavors, but my favorite is “Salt of the Earth.”

Popcorners have three simple ingredients: yellow corn, sunflower oil, and sea salt. Each serving has only 110 calories. And PopCorners are gluten-free and GMO-free. I suggest keeping this healthy snack at your desk — a much better option than visiting the vending machine.

My third pick may surprise you a little bit. It’s cottage cheese. Say goodbye to boring cottage cheese, because there’s a new cottage cheese on the block: Muuna cottage cheese.

Muuna cottage cheese comes in handy single-serving cups. High in protein, rich, and creamy, Muuna cottage cheese has real pieces of orchard fruit, including raspberry, strawberry, peach, and pineapple.

My fourth pick is another snack I recommend keeping at your desk: Setton Farm pistachios. Pistachios are heart-healthy and provide your body with amazing nutrition. Filled with antioxidants, they’re also a great source of vitamin B6, protein, and fiber.

Setton Farms has offers far more than the standard salty pistachios. One of my favorites is their Salt & Pepper flavored pistachios. And when I am craving something sweet, I happily reach for their dark-chocolate covered pistachios

My fifth pick is a beverage. Maybe like me, you are looking for something more than water to consume? I have added Sunsweet Amazin prune juice into my repertoire. This delicious juice is an excellent way to help maintain good digestive health and give you the fiber that you need. Their juice also comes in a light variety with a mere 100 calories and 8 grams of sugar per serving.

My last pick isn’t technically a food, but a supplement. I recommend Just Thrive probiotics not to replace healthy food, but to supplement a healthy diet. Probiotics keep your digestive tract functioning optimally and also help your immune system and reduce the inflammation that is a precursor to almost every disease. So there you have it! My top picks for 2018! Try them out and add some healthy pizazz to your food routine.
