Food in The New Year

What will food mean for you in the New Year?

A helpful meme on social media suggested that my focus for 2021 will be: Connection, Health, Miracles, and Creation. I can’t say I’m opposed to any of that.

2020 has been a wild ride. I could talk a lot about that, but I would like to re-focus the conversation, if at least for a little bit.

I want to begin the year just as hopeful as any other year. Perhaps even moreso. I want to approach the year with vigor, compassion, and relentless joy – the power behind facing any challenge that gets thrown at us. That irrepressible “Let’s do this!” attitude.

So let’s start with food. I always think we should aim to eat more fruits and vegetables, and eat less food that makes us feel badly afterwards. But let’s take it a step further…

1. I will eat something every day that brings me joy.

2. I will never say “I shouldn’t have eaten that.”

3. I will try new recipes!

4. More often I will say, “damn that tastes good.”

5. I will connect with more people, maybe even through food!

6. I will judge my health by my happiness, not by my waistline, and adjust accordingly.

7. I will look for miracles, and praise their awesomeness.

8. I will create.

What are your hopes and dreams? What speaks to you? How can you connect with food this year in a way that brings you joy?

I love you all. I wish you good health, exceptional laughter, and an eternal sparkle in your eye.

Happy 2021 everybody. Lets drink more water, connect with friends, and fiercely take on whatever comes next.

I have a great desire to bring the ordinary to life. I think life is at once more beautiful, and more simple, than we have been taught to believe.
