Did you know that only 8 percent of people keep their New year’s resolutions? I have a theory about this. Almost every resolution (at least, the ones about diet and eating) involves depriving oneself of something delicious. (for example, “carbs are evil and so I will not eat carbs even though pasta is my favorite thing in the world”). That’s never going to work. Unless you are a masochist.
Instead, how about committing to eating more of something you know is good for you? For example, “I will eat more leafy greens” or “I will eat more salmon.” By eating more of the healthy stuff, you will naturally eat less of the unhealthy stuff and may even discover a love for new foods you wouldn’t have tried otherwise.
Eat more salmon, you say?! Well. I have the perfect thing. Smoked salmon and caper cream cheese toast!
