Setting “SMART” healthy eating goals is a great way to help you feel and look your best. “SMART” stands for goals that are: specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic and time-framed. Setting “SMART” goals can also help you achieve bigger goals you may want to set for yourself over time.
Use these 10 “SMART” goals below to get your inspired. Then visit the My Goals tool found on EaTracker. Pick from many ready-made goals or write your own goal!
Every day this week, I will eat breakfast that has all 4 food groups (e.g. a whole grain bagel, peanut butter and banana slices with a glass of milk).
Eat brown rice or whole wheat pasta instead of white rice or white pasta at least once this week.
Eat a dark green vegetable every day this week (e.g. spinach, broccoli, Romaine lettuce, bok choy, swiss chard, peas).
Make one new healthy recipe for dinner this week.
This weekend I will find and try a new recipe using beans (e.g. kidney beans, navy beans, soy beans).
I will pack my lunch from home 3 days this week rather than eating out.
Go for a walk with a friend for 15 minutes 2 times this week.
Avoid second helpings during meals and snacks every day this week.
Use less fat when cooking (e.g. bake, broil, steam and stir-fry) this week.
Use skim, 1% or 2% milk instead of cream in my coffee this week.
