Every January, 45% of Americans make New Year’s resolutions. But as we get farther away from New Year’s Day, the shine of our goals can dull quickly. Entering the long months of winter, we crave comfort, and often go back to old habits that undercut our good intentions.
This year, the most popular Google search term for New Year’s resolutions was to “get healthy”. Eating healthy food should be at the top of any to-do list, and we’ve gone through our favorite recipes to find these delicious dishes that will keep you interested in eating well, and inspired to keep your wellness goals.
Thinking with Your Stomach
When we hear the word addiction, we might think of alcohol or drugs, not food. Food sustains life, but it also holds the power to damage or control it. Many of us, whether we realize it or not, have our own food addictions. Sure, this can be beneficial if you crave a variety of fresh vegetables, and who doesn’t crave a juicy peach during the summer or a nice salad at least once a week? However, most Americans, even those with access to fresh food, don’t eat it.
Your kitchen — it’s where your family gathers after a long day of work and school to be together, share a meal. Your kitchen is the warmest (and not to mention most delicious!) part of your home, where you cook your favorite foods for you and your family — sometimes even together. The kitchen — it’s definitely our favorite room in the house!
Your fridge is the heart of your kitchen, keeping it alive with all sorts of delicious foods. And opening those fridge doors to see food piled upon food can feel like heaven (unless you forgot to go grocery shopping again, oops!).
And then there’s that other door that perhaps you haven’t explored quite enough: the freezer. The freezer is sacred, preserving your food for long periods of time, while still keeping it fresh. Of course, there’s an art to freezing food, and not everybody knows the true secrets of how to use the freezer. Here, we’ll give you the rundown of just how to use your freezer to it’s fullest potential.
