So it’s the start of another new year, yay 2014! We’re big believers in making new years resolutions. If the goals you set are honest, achievable and things you actually care about working on, resolutions are great motivators for improvement in all areas of your life. We decided to come up with a list of food/nutrition related goals for 2014 to share with you.
We’ve all heard it! 8 glasses a day for better skin, a flatter belly, more energy and better overall health. Although on most days, we do choose to drink water over juice, we’re still guilty of not drinking enough. We think the above illustration by Torrie T. Asai would sure help us remember to drink up! Do you have any tips for drinking more water?
2. This one’s a biggie! The UN estimates that 1/3 of all of the world’s food goes to waste, ONE THIRD!!! This is nuts considering around 925 Million people worldwide are threatened by starvation. This has been a resolution for the past few years now and is something that we are improving on. It’s not that we’re big food wasters (nor have we ever been) but by changing the way we shop for food and putting an emphasis on meal planning BEFORE we go to the store or market have really helped us to buy only the food we know we are going to eat before it goes bad.
The above photo is part of a really cool series by photographer Klaus Pichler entitled “One Third” on the topic of food waste.
