How to swim through the New Year as a new you!

Did you know the first two weeks of January are the busiest weeks of the year at health clubs? A lot of people start the year by “turning over a new leaf” when it comes to taking better care of themselves. The problem is, of those who make New Year’s resolutions with gym memberships, about 80% lose their enthusiasm by mid-February.

Establishing an exercise routine can be tough. It takes discipline. However, there is an easier (and more enjoyable) way to take good care of your body. It begins with what you put into it, because nutritious food is the cornerstone for improving your physical condition and the vitality of everyone in your family.

Protein is essential to everyone’s nutritional well being. On planet earth, some of the finest sources of lean, high-quality protein and other key nutrients come from fish and seafood. Nobody serves up that tasty nutrition better than Morey’s.

In addition to providing protein, Morey’s products contain valuable Omega-3 fatty acids. Studies have proven that adding Omega-3s to your diet may decrease your risk for heart disease, certain cancers, stroke and Alzheimer’s disease. Given these findings, it’s not surprising that the American Heart Association encourages two servings of fish or seafood per week in their dietary recommendations.

Luckily for all fish and seafood lovers, something that’s this good for our bodies is also equally delicious. Morey’s marinated salmon, mahi mahi and tilapia are great examples. There are so many distinct flavors available, you can have Morey’s twice a week and never lose your craving for its delectability! The marinade creations include flavors like: Lemon Parmesan, Wood Roasted, Seasoned Grill, Garlic Cracked Pepper, Lemon Dill, Pineapple Mango, Sweet Mango and Garden Pesto.

New Year. New You. Eat better in 2015.

So as you kick off 2015, make a pledge to enjoy a Morey’s meal twice a week. Plan two particular days of the week to make fish and seafood days. Many opt for one of them to be Saturday, because it’s a relaxing weekend day when the family can gather around the table to share good food and conversation.

Take a poll from all the hungry eaters in your house to determine which signature marinades they prefer for Saturday’s meal. This will help you select the ideal side dishes to accompany your fish. For example, many Morey’s fans have reported that the refreshing citrus zest of the Lemon Dill Salmon goes great with the nutty richness of squash and asparagus. Another flavor, like Morey’s Garlic Cracked Pepper Salmon, really complements fresh green beans, wild rice and a nice buttery chardonnay as a wine pairing.

Whichever initial day you decide is “seafood day,” pick the next to be a few days later. So if you make Saturday special with Morey’s, then choose Tuesday or Wednesday for your other day. It’s a very easy and tasty routine to get into!

Remember that the way you prepare each Morey’s dish will add even more uniqueness to your meal events. Bake it, broil it, grill it… it’s up to you, and every method imparts a different quality to the fish. If you’re crunched for time on a particular day, Morey’s is quick and easy to microwave too – just minutes from freezer to table! Every package contains the perfect serving size for a meal, with all the savory marinade sealed in with the fish. Morey’s has done all the work for you and your busy lifestyle.

As you embark on a year of better eating, you can choose to keep track of your progression. Maybe monitoring your weight is important. Perhaps gauging your general wellness (on a daily 1-10 scale of how you “feel”) is a strategy you’ll find helpful. Whichever track you take, eat great food throughout 2015 and make it a wonderful year!

Good luck and bon appétit.
