Eat Less Sugar
The holidays have made it easy to fall off the healthy train. Time to get back on track.
Make a Grocery Budget
In an effort to save some cash, I’m going to try sticking to a monthly grocery budget. As part of this goal, I am going to look for coupons, coupon apps, and other frugal tips.
Plan Week Night Meals
When I get home from work, I don’t need to worry about what I’m going to make and whether we have all the necessary ingredients. I’m going to be more prepared this year.
When I do go out to eat, I want to start avoiding fries. Really, I need to avoid all fried foods. They’re delicious. But I can do with less.
Try new recipes
I’ve owned a few cookbooks for years and have barely cracked them open! It’s time to change that. I’m also looking forward to new finds on Pinterest and of course from fellow bloggers.
Fish is a much leaner, healthier option for meat and I want to try to go for this option more often.
I want to cut down the amount of meat I’m eating. Especially red meat. So in order to reach this goal, I will institute Meatless Mondays in my kitchen…maybe Meatless Wednesday too.
Throw Away Kitchen Junk
I have a lot of kitchen supplies from freshman year of college. Everything is rusted, broken, and unmatching– not classy. So this year, I resolve to give away or throw away crap and replace them when the budget allows.
Perfect Cupcake Decorating
What I mean to say is…I want to keep practicing, keep learning. My cupcake decorating skills are miles away from what they once were but I want to get even better in 2014.
Eat At Least 1 Serving of Veggies Per Meal
I pretty much do this anyway, but I want to be more strict about this when I eat out. I want to make sure I am getting enough vegetables in my diet.
Eat breakfast more often
I am not a morning person. I make it to work on time, but I usually don’t leave enough time for breakfast. I’m going to make homemade granola bars on the weekends and prepare sandwich bags with instant oatmeal to keep at my desk.
Replace candy with fruits
I do love my chocolate bars but it’s time to cut back a bit. Less processed sugar and more natural, healthy sugar.
As a rule of thumb, I don’t drink soda. I don’t like drinking my sugar. But I do have a soda every once in a while. I think I want to cut that down to I almost never drink soda.
Over 2013, I’ve accumulated a bunch of new decorating supplies. I think it’s time that I get organized. Note to self: research organizing ideas.
What are your kitchen resolutions for 2014?
