I've always been a big resolution person. To clarify, I'm great at making resolutions. Keeping them is a horse of a different color. My problem is that instead of focusing on one manageable, measurable goal like "I'd like to jazzercise three times a week so I can fit comfortably into something other than pajama jeans", I totally overwhelm myself by constructing an itemized list of 25 new habits I'd like to adopt. It's never worked, and I'm finally giving it up. No resolutions for me. I'll set a goal for myself on my own time, when I feel a true pull to make a real change.
Still, there's no denying that I am feeling very inclined to eat more thoughtfully after my month-long cookie and eggnog binge. My healthy habits really went out the window last month, and though I hesitate to call healthy eating a resolution, I am doing my best to have more resolve when making food choices.
If you're trying to do the same, I highly recommend my dinner combo from last night. Vegetarian, filling, and chock full of some really good stuff, this plate left me feeling satisfied, not sluggish. Quinoa patties with fresh herbs, a raw kale and brussel sprouts salad with toasted almonds and mashed sweet potatoes with a tablespoon of goat cheese and a quick drizzle of truffle oil. Everything was so good!
And for lunch today? Toasted bread with white bean-garlic-rosemary spread, mashed avocado and sprouts. I'm back, baby!
