As you know, one of the top new year’s resolutions we make is to live healthier lifestyles. Eat right, work out more and so on. But it’s usually one of the hardest resolutions to keep. There’s always a plate of brownies or a basket of fries taunting our taste buds. And, of course, sometimes we fold under pressure and give in to those temptations. We all do it, because it’s almost impossible resist a chocolate chip cookie every now and then.
But there are some ways to help make that resolution stick without sacrificing taste. Give these healthy hacks a go in the new year and you’ll be on your way to a guilt-free 2021.
Oat Milk vs. Dairy Milk
Nut milks have been around for years as alternatives to dairy. But they’re not exactly earth’s best friend. It takes a lot of water to grow the almonds and cashews used in these products. Organic oat milk is the answer. In addition to its smooth, creamy taste, there are plenty of health benefits to substituting dairy and nut milks for oat milk (Google it). Oat milk is loaded with vitamins, nutrients and fiber and is a natural anti-inflammatory. Give our over-worked dairy cows a break. Drink more oat milk.
Would you like some coffee with your sugar?
Most coffee shop Frappuccinos are filled to the brim with sugar and calories. Just one serving and you’ve topped out on your recommended daily intake. So, let’s put down the sugary drinks and pick up a RISE Oat Milk Latte. No added sugar, fewer calories and it tastes like something you shouldn’t be drinking on your “new you” new year’s resolution.
Oat Milk Mocha Latte vs. Coffee Shop Mocha Latte
The results are in and RISE Oat Milk Mocha Latte wins by a landslide. We’ve already talked about the health benefits of oat milk, and the sugar/calorie evils of most coffee shop drinks, so we won’t belabor the point. Replace your morning mocha craving with something better.
So, there you have it. A few simple, great tasting healthy hacks for the new year. You got this.
