    This way, all you have to do in the morning is dump things into a blender. Here are some ideas about what kinds of smoothies to make.

    3. Make lower-carb, gluten-free noodles with your favorite root vegetable.

    4. Before you make any crazy New Year's diet resolutions, figure out what your goals are and what kinds of changes are actually realistic.

    A crash diet is probably a bad idea, and you should do your research before making any major, long-term change in the way you eat. It also helps to have a specific goal in mind. Want to lose body fat? Here's what you need to know. Other, more specific goals can be even trickier. For example, getting a six-pack is actually pretty tough and requires some sacrifices that might not be worth it for you.

    5. Be aware of portion sizes, especially if you're at a party where everything is served buffet-style and it might be harder to keep track of what you're eating.

    6. Make a kale salad that's really, truly filling and delicious.

    7. Put together some healthy, make-ahead freezer meals so that you always have a wholesome dinner option on-hand.
