How to Welcome a Healthy New Year

Happy New Year from Palmetto Bluff! The tradition of making New Year’s resolutions has been around for a long time, and most revolve around achieving a healthier lifestyle. Beginning the New Year by striving to achieve all the goals you want to establish for yourself is only natural, as it’s a fresh start for everyone.

At Palmetto Bluff, we want to help you live the life you deserve — including being your happiest and healthiest self! Continue reading to learn how to welcome a healthy new year by creating balanced options that suit your lifestyle.

1. Form Healthy Habits

Before you begin to make quick-fix changes, it’s essential to start slow and form some healthy habits. Gradually developing practices will help you reach your goals by reinforcing these changes to your new lifestyle.

To succeed at your health goals, you must have a growth mindset by focusing on improvement, not perfection. Slowly start by incorporating mindful eating habits, which entails paying attention to your feelings towards your food, your overall contentment, and fullness. If you’re satisfied with your choices and feel better about the food you’re eating — it’s a great start! As well as being healthy, food should be enjoyable. While you may strive to create healthy habits, you can still indulge in traditional Lowcountry dishes as they are nutritious and good for your mind and soul.

2. Include a Variety of Whole Foods

Another way to improve your overall health is to include more organic and whole foods in your diet. By doing so, you’ll have a colorful plate full of fresh fruits, vegetables, and proteins. By cutting out on heavily processed foods, you’ll start to eat more home-grown foods. Undoubtedly, food from a farm or garden is healthier for you, but it also tastes better!

Luckily for members at Palmetto Bluff, the property has its very own farm! Farm Manager Shane Rahn develops seasonal plantings and harvests that Executive Chef Rhy Waddington uses in his creative, signature dishes. These two local characters constantly deliver the best fare the Lowcountry has to offer — especially in the form of farm-to-table dining.

3. Eat Farm-to-Table

Farm-to-table dining is a staple at Palmetto Bluff; once you experience it, you’ll never go back. You will undoubtedly be able to taste the difference compared to other establishments that may use inauthentic ingredients and preservatives. In contrast to processed food, which sometimes tastes bland, farm fresh food bursts with flavor.

The flavors of farm-to-table cuisine are immaculate, and the fresh, organic ingredients are rich in nutrients. You can be confident that when you consume farm-fresh meals, you obtain all of the beneficial nutrients that improve your health. Additionally, members never experience eating repetitive meals as Palmetto Bluff offers ever-evolving menus that change with the seasons.

One of the more casual options is the Canteen, which serves fresh breakfast sandwiches, handmade panini, wraps, and colorful salads. After enjoying a round of golf or exploring the waterways, stop by May River Grill for a fulfilling lunch. Finally, visit one of the many upscale restaurants for dinner, such as Cole’s or the Canoe Club, where fresh produce and proteins combine to create an unremarkable culinary experience.
