Eating Healthier with Spelt

Congratulations!! You made it all the way through January with your healthy eating resolution!!

Getting through the first month is half the battle. Keeping it up in February can often be tough to do because we want to reward ourselves for that first month of success – but this is where it’s easy to slip back into old habits.

Here are some fantastic tips and ideas how SPELT can help you keep your resolution going through 2017 and beyond!!

Whole grains like spelt are so important to any healthfully balanced diet. A healthy diet really is all about balance and plants are a huge part of these balanced meals. When you hear, “eat plants” remember that grains are plants! They are plants that give you protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals and so much more!

Whole Spelt Pasta:
Yes! You can have your pasta! When paired with a healthy sauce, whole grain pasta can be a delicious part of your healthy eating routine. Check out this list we put together for the Whole Grains Council on our favorite pasta sauces for whole spelt pasta!

Eat smart on Super-Sunday:
Super Bowl parties are notorious for their unhealthy foods. Make sure to eat smart throughout the day to help you resist all those tempting calorie-laden dips. Eat spelt toast at breakfast, make yourself a heart healthy grain salad with spelt berries for lunch. Make sure to eat a healthy snack before you go and bring to the party a platter filled with beautifully cut veggies, hummus, and spelt pretzels so you know there will be at least one dish that’s healthy – everyone else will be so happy you did!

Indulge healthfully for Valentine’s Day:
Whether you are celebrating with friends, your kids, or your special someone bake up a healthy treat that satisfies both your sweet tooth and your resolution. Spelt flour and dark chocolate are an amazing combination and help you keep your indulgence on the healthier side!

Stock up your pantry:
Make sure your pantry is filled with spelt berries, beans, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, and lots of spelt pasta in a variety of shapes. When your pantry is stocked correctly, you’ll always have a base for a last minute healthy dinner!

All it takes is a little bit of planning {and spelt!} to keep your healthy eating going all year long!
