Happy New Year! The start of a new year for many of us starts with renewed goals to be more active, eat healthier, start a new hobby or get rid of a bad habit. We start January off with the best intentions, but most resolutions tend to fizzle out before we reach the end of the month.
We used to think it took 21 days to form a new habit but recent research suggests it can take up to 10 weeks! While it varies from person to person, being flexible with our goals, having an accountability buddy and celebrating the small wins can all help keep us on track to achieving our goals.
If you resolved to eat healthier in 2024, one easy step is to start by adding more fruits and vegetables to your plate. Fresh strawberries are packed with vitamin C to keep your immune system in tip-top shape, fiber to support heart and digestive health, and are low in calories and sugar (A serving of eight strawberries is about 50 calories and only 8 grams of sugar!).
Here are 8 of our favorite strawberry recipes for the new year!
