Food Resolutions

What are your goals for the new year? After all the holiday food, drinks and relaxing, a new year is a good time (excuse) to reflect and make changes. It doesn't need to be anything drastic, make it realistic. 
  1. Cook more! At LEAST three times a week.
  2. Eat less processed food (including refined sugars). Try to make it from scratch.
  3. Know what you are eating by reading the labels, don't take anything for granted.
  4. Drink water, 8 cups a day!
  5. Try Meatless Mondays.
  6. Support your local shops and greenmarket.
  7. Love your fruits and vegetables. Focus on seasonal foods.
  8. Go for organic or grass-fed foods, especially meat and dairy.
  9. Waste less, leftovers are good for a snack or meal anytime.
  10. Try new recipes.
Not too hard, right? There are a few of these I need to work on. Some new recipes I want to try out are Tomato Soup (definitely not Campbell's!), homemade paté and chocolate mousse. After all, I need more for next year's "C (is for) Cooking" calendar
Thank you to all the people from over 17 countries throughout the globe who check into this website/blog. I've had over 5,800 page hits since I actually got it together to put the recipes online last year. 

These are your top five favorites: 

See you in 2012!
