It's January! Foodie New Year's Resolutions

Hello, 2013!

The new year is upon us and with that comes New Year's resolutions. For 2012 I vowed to reduce unnecessary chemicals in my life. My aspirations went far beyond the dinner plate.

My resolution included:
  • buying organic foods when affordable
  • cooking from scratch to avoid preservatives and fillers
  • overhauling my makeup choices to reduce chemical exposure
  • making natural household cleaners
  • using natural and organic beauty products
This year I plan to continue my healthy crusade and add financial health to the mix. Although having your own business has its perks (I am working in lounge pants and slippers today!) it also comes with unpaid holidays and vacations. For 2013, I will plan for these events not only based on deadlines and client needs, but also with a planned-out financial schedule. (Tips and ideas welcome!)

Do your New Year's resolutions for 2013 relate to your diet, health or overall well-being? Please share in the comments below and inspire other readers!

Happy New Year!

Until Next Time,
Choose Healthy!

  1. I'd love to be able to afford to buy organic foods. My heart says yes, but my income denies me the privelage. When I was able to walk, I grew all my own vegetables. Ah, to be young again. Enjoy fitness while you can.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Francene. I am pretty darn frugal, so organic food is still a luxury for me too. But, I have found my local dollar store sells organic soy milk for $1 and my local grocery store sells organic carrots for 99 cents! Check the organic sections for good sales. You never know what you'll find. Take care! ~Angela

  2. Excellent goals for the new year! Here's to a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous 2013! :)

    1. Aww, thanks Martha! Happy New Year to you too! ~Angela
