2019 is promising to be that year when goals are reached and targets smashed.

2019 is promising to be that year when goals are reached and targets smashed. Unfortunately, it’s easy to get your head stuck in the big picture and forget that the most important aims in life revolve around you. The good thing is it has never been easier to make small changes in your lifestyle and diet to leave you feeling more virtuous than a millennial after a 5:00AM yoga class.

With over three quarters of Brits launching their new year’s resolutions as we speak,* a cynic might say we truly are a nation that likes to set ourselves up for a fall. The reality is that we simply want some more of that wholesome nutritious eating to get us fighting fit from morning to bed time.

Rebecca Waters, Head of Marketing for Robert Dyas says, “There is no better time than the New Year for everyone to make a fresh new start. There is a reason why the phrase ‘carpe diem’ has been a call to action for over 2,000 years. We love an opportunity to seize the now and make a change for the better in 2019 just as much as we did all those years ago.”

Where to start?

Skinny fries or fat chips? This is the tough decision you’ll have to make after getting the Salter 3.2L Hot Air Fryer – Black/Silver (£39.99). The low-fat air fryer can be used to fry many tasty meals from tofu to onion rings. The removable cooking basket is also non-stick making it easy to clean away the remnants of your gourmet masterpieces.

Some say technology makes us lazy, others might argue the four-portion George Forman Family Health Grill (£19.99) proves tech is on our side. This clever device channels any fat and grease away from your food into a drip tray to enjoy healthier burgers, delicious grilled chicken or scrumptious vegetable combinations.

It is no lie that what you eat changes your shape and figure, but have you ever considered changing the shape of your food? In a fantastic twist of events, the Salter 3-in-1 Electric Fruit and Vegetable Spiralizer (£15.99) provides a great way to add variety to your chopping without risk of injury. The spiralizer comes with three different types of stainless-steel blades to experiment with.

It’s full steam ahead this year with the Russell Hobbs 21140 3-Tier Food Steamer(£22.29). In just 40 seconds witness salmon, baby corn and sweet potatoes cook simultaneously, yet very much separately -perfect for veggies who don’t want their food mixed with the meat and fish. The 3-tier function also means you take up less space on the counter and no space on the hob; a supremely economical solution.

Soup is an ever-popular on-the-go low-calorie meal to consume and it’s even healthier when it’s fresh and homemade. Making soup has never been simpler with the Salter 1.6L Electric Soup Maker – Stainless Steel (£39.99). Taking just 20-30 minutes to make a soup means you can have lunch sorted in no time at all.

Then take your soup on the go in the Polar Gear 1L Stainless Steel Flask (£9.99). Who knows what this Winter weather will throw at us, but at least you can be certain that you can have hot liquids for up to six hours.

To quench your thirst…

You’ll never have to buy bottled water again with the Brita Maxtra+ Marella Water Filter Jug Starter Pack – White (£24.99). Providing beautifully clean water in an environmentally friendly way is surely going to fulfil some new year resolutions.
Drink up with the Polar Gear Daily Water 750ml Tritan Bottle – Turquoise/Pink(£3.99). Never forget to stay hydrated again with motivational reminders to keep you going throughout the day.

Short of time but wanting to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle? Then the Contigo Shake & Go Bottle 650ml may be ideal for you (£12.99). The special shaking ball and the rounded base design allows for powder drinks to be mixed easier without lumps.

Tired of lugging a thermos around with you or need something quick and easy to slip in your bag, why not try out the Stojo Collapsible Pocket Cup – Blue (£7.99)? Built for convenience, quickly collapsible and both microwave and dishwasher friendly. Alternatively, why not have a look at the Contigo West Loop Bottle 470ml – Black(£24.99)? This easy to clean travel mug has a capacity of 470ml, keeping drinks hot for six hours or keeping them cool for up to 12 hours with its double wall insulation.

The best way of knowing what goes in your drink? Make it yourself. By using the Salter Power Juicer (£26.24) you can easily make your money back within a month whilst avoiding sugar from other juice drinks. A win-win to start the new year right.

If you prefer to make a drink to have on-the-go, why not concoct delicious smoothies using the Breville VBL075 Blend Active Personal Blender (19.99)? With a leak-proof lid you can leave your worries in 2018 with spillages being a thing of the past.

So, embrace the fresh start to a new year and help you and your family to a journey of a healthier lifestyle.
