Find Your Resolve in Better Health

I'm not too big on New Years  Resolutions, we start the year with great intentions and typically within a few weeks we revert to our previous habits.

Here some items that I'm working on for the new year and you might want to consider too. They may be helpful in improving the quality of your life.
  1. Exercise 30 minutes a day. 
  2. Buy Local. If there is an option buy locally grown food and locally produced goods
  3. Incorporate More Vegetables into your meals. Vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants, the list  of health benefits is long.
  4. Preference Organic.  Get the chemicals out of your food chain. The price premium is worth it. Pay a little extra for delicious food now or pay for poor health later.
  5. Eat More Chicken. I know this slogan is already taken. If you have never had a free range chicken, you have never had chicken.
  6. Grass Fed Beef.  Again if you have never had grass fed you haven't had beef. But it isn't just the flavor. Grass fed also has a very healthy Omega 3, 6, & 9 fat profile. Similar to wild caught salmon.
  7. Use more herbs. Use natural, healthy and organic herbs to season your food.
  8. Try a new recipe once a month. Cooking is becoming a lost art. Expand your repertoire.
  9. Loose 20 pounds. A good goals for about 80% of the American population.
  10. Donate to the needy. Clean out your pantry or grow a little extra in your garden. The poor will always be with us, but at least they don't have to be hungry.
