It’s one month into 2018 and I don’t know about you, but my resolution went out the window weeks ago. I made a resolution to read more, sounds easy, right? Turns out a busy schedule and all my favorite TV shows coming back (I see you, Grey’s Anatomy!) doesn’t make for a whole lot of free time to curl up with a good book.
That being said, one thing I am trying to stick to, beyond the first month of the New Year, is a 2018 food goal! This year I am trying my hardest to branch out with what I cook at home. I want to try new flavors and ingredients, both in my own kitchen and when I am out to dinner. I checked in with some of my FleishmanHillard coworkers to find out what their 2018 foodie goals are!
Some of our favorite foodie moments of 2018…so far!
Gabby – “My food goal is to try one new restaurant every month, and I am already off to a hot start! Recent crossed both South and Moxie off my list.”
John – “More variety, less sugar”
Alexa – “My food goal is to focus on clean eating – natural ingredients to help me feel healthier.”
Shelly – “Try new recipes! We got a start at it last weekend with a new cheesecake recipe…it was wonderful/dangerous. And, a yummy pork chili recipe that actually had coffee and raisins in it. Not a combo I would expect, but it was good!”
Liz – “My 2018 food goal is to experiment more in my own kitchen and cook at least one new recipe a month, from scratch. It might not sound like a lot, but it is for someone like me who rarely turns on the oven!”
Christine – “My 2018 food goal is to eat more plant-based meals. And cook at home.”
Harrison – “To make at least one new Instant Pot recipe per month! I’m obsessed with it and I can’t wait to explore all the possibilities of the appliance.”
Amanda – “My food goal for the year is to be more mindful with food – listen to my body, not my cravings.”
Laurel – “I want to make my own kombucha!”
Cheyenne – “Breakaway from my normal choices and take culinary adventures in both cooking and dining out.”
Niño – “Read more nutrition facts labels and really know what I’m consuming.”
Brandon – “My food goal is to eat as many locally sourced foods and food products as possible!”
Sidney – “My main food goal is to bring my lunch from home at least 4 out of 5 days a week. My secondary food goal is to stop ordering Postmates”
