King Kullen Helps Customers with New Years Resolutions

Bethpage, NY (PRWEB) January 27, 2015

January is the perfect time for a fresh start. Those looking to gain a healthier and more active lifestyle can do so with the help of King Kullen. King Kullen is committed to helping all their customers accomplish their goals and stick to their new year’s resolutions this month. The grocery store is offering tips on the best foods to eat and more for the winter season.

Incorporating certain foods into one’s diet can help to encourage weight loss. For example, grapefruit is low in calories and sugar as well as high in soluble fiber, which satisfies and prevents overeating. Green tea can help to increase the metabolic rate of the human body, which intensifies the rate at which the body burns calories into energy.

Cinnamon, lemon and honey can all be beneficial for one’s diet and can be consumed in a cup of tea. Cinnamon helps stabilize blood sugar levels, which results in fewer cravings. Lemon helps to lose weight by increasing metabolic rate. Honey provides a desired sweetness, while also providing necessary nutrients and helping with proper digestion.

Making a few substitutions in one’s regular diet can also result in healthy benefits. Try quinoa instead of rice or avocado instead of mayo. Mix tuna or chicken with avocado for a tasty salad. Avocado mixed with lemon can also be used in place of fattening dressings. Blend frozen bananas and almonds or peanut butter for a sweet treat instead of ice cream.

It can be difficult to find motivation to exercise, since it’s too cold to do anything outdoors. However, there are plenty of fun workouts that can be done indoors. Using weights or an exercise ball can help increase one’s strength or try this workout for something fun and equipment-free.

Warm up with some winter spices this month. Allspice, star anise, chai and cloves are the perfect addition to your tea and more. Star anise has powerful infection-fighting properties due to its compounds of shikimic acid and anethole. It can be used in tea or even applesauce. Try making this delicious homemade apple cider with allspice and cloves.

The crockpot is an extremely useful tool for warm winter meals. Whether it’s for soup, stew or something else, it’s sure to be delicious and perfect for the winter season. These soup recipes are both healthy and delicious, so the whole family is sure to love them. Check out King Kullen’s Pinterest page for more great slow cooker recipes.

It can be tempting to spend the whole winter season lying on the couch under a blanket, but there are plenty of activities to keep the whole family moving. Spice things up a bit this winter and try something new. Take the kids to an indoor skating rink for a fun family activity that requires exercise. Build a fort or go camping in the living room. Spend some time making crafts like this paper heart penguin. King Kullen’s Pinterest page offers tons of ideas for fun crafts and recipes to make with the kids.

The winter season offers great opportunities to make some changes in one’s diet, exercise and activities. This year, try something different to stick to a new year’s resolution and to improve your life. For great food, recipe ideas and more, visit the nearest King Kullen location today.
