While I’m not a fan of ‘let’s change something major at the first of the year’ mentality, I do believe there is benefit in setting a few small intentions for the upcoming months. When I talk to people about this, something around food always comes up, usually with an emphasis on eating more vegetables. Given that only about 10% of adults in the United States eat the recommended serving of vegetables (according to the CDC), it’s a good emphasis to have.
And so, to start this new year, I thought I’d share five tips to get you on the path to eating more plants (and plant-based recipes). It’s definitely a shift and not every member of your family may be onboard right away. I still get my fair-share of ‘that looks disgusting’ from my toddler. The most important part is trying. If you don’t like something, that’s cool- try something else. If you’re on the fence, try it again but maybe in a different way.
