Individual Mushroom, Turkey & Egg Frittata

(Family Features) Most people take care of their families, their clients, their pets and even their neighbors. But do they really devote enough time to taking care of themselves?

This year, take that first step by committing to a healthy lifestyle.

The Highlights of a Healthy Life Follow these five ways to jump-start a healthy lifestyle this year for a new, healthier you:
  1. Eat smaller meals more frequently. This causes your metabolism to speed up, enabling you to burn more calories every day. Consider eating six small meals or snacks a day instead of three hearty meals per day.

  2. Maximize your nutrient intake by choosing power-packed, nutritious foods.  Vitamin-rich foods are an excellent way to strengthen your immune system. A protein-rich snack provides long-lasting energy. Eggland’s Best eggs, for example, contain four times more vitamin D and over three times more omega-3’s compared to regular eggs. They also contain high levels of vitamin B12 and vitamin E, are a good source of vitamin A and vitamin B2 and are lower in saturated fat and cholesterol than regular eggs. EB eggs are also high in protein to help keep you full, so you won’t be tempted to snack on treats full of empty calories.

  3. Drink lots of water. . Water helps the food move through the digestive system more easily, and also helps you feel full. Follow the 8 x 8 rule and drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water every day.

  4. Exercise regularly. . It’s simple – the more you move, the more calories you burn. Plus, regular exercise gives you more energy during the day and helps you sleep better at night. Health and nutrition experts suggest at least 30 minutes of exercise daily.

  5. Get enough rest. . Sleep restores your body and allows it to prepare for the next day. Aim for eight hours of sleep a night. Try going to bed and getting up at the same time each day to establish a consistent body rhythm.
