“Researchers say about 60% of us make New Year’s resolutions but only about 8% are successful in achieving them.” The Leadership Guy
The top 4 resolutions are pretty consistent year after year if you take a look at statistics Canada. This tells me that each year most people are not satisfied with their current state of health at the closing of the year. 4 out of 5 of these resolutions can be achieved on your plate! We eat every day, multiple times a day, giving us opportunity after opportunity to achieve these goals.
Let’s make the most out of each opportunity!
Goal #1 – eating healthier means including a variety of fruits and vegetables in your diet and staying away from the quick fix processed food in packages.
EAT THE RAINBOW!
Goal #2 – eating a plant centred diet will give you the restful sleep and energy that you require to get out and do what you love. Any exercise is good exercise and we all have something that we wish we could do more of but lack the motivation, energy or desire to make time for it. The fuel that you put in your body will transfer into every aspect of your life.
Goal #3 – eating a healthy balanced plant based diet will bring your body down to it’s natural weight. Your metabolism will increase, your filtration organs will detoxify and your body will start to work more efficiently and more effectively
Goal #4 – the stigma that eating plant based costs more isn’t true in most places in Canada. (I don’t want to speak for countries that I haven’t lived in) It is true that processed vegan food like non-dairy ice cream, vegan cheese, and fake ‘meat’ are expensive. BUT that kind of food isn’t good for you anyways. The basics like fruit, veggies, beans and grains are affordable throughout the year by switching to frozen veggies and berries in off season. There are many grains like rice, couscous and split barley that are quick and easy to make, fitting nicely into a busy schedule and canned beans are a great way to have something almost instant yet packed with essential nutrients.
Goal# 5 – Many people don’t know how to put together a healthy, nutrient dense, vegan meal or meal plan. This is a great new skill to learn that will carry over year after year benefiting not only you but your friends and family too 🙂

I wish you all health and happiness in 2019 and I hope that I can help you in achieving all of your goals and resolutions 🙂
