It’s the time of year again that we all dread… New Year’s resolution time. We have all just barely managed to scrape through the season of giving and are now faced with making a promise or setting a personal goal which will, or should, define the coming New Year. Let’s be honest, that’s a lot of pressure. And no one sets out to lie to themselves about turning over a new leaf or making a greater effort, but we do however seem to select some pretty lofty goals for ourselves. But this year can be different, and the reason is simple. You are going to make a great resolution but also one that you can keep for the entire year! Resolve to grill more of your food in 2018!
This might sound like a rather simple and even silly promise to make to yourself, but in reality it is anything but silly. As a population, Americans are a very unhealthy bunch when it comes to what we choose to eat. The USDA reported that on average each American consumes between 150 and 170 pounds of sugar per year. In addition we eat more processed foods, fats and calories than any other nation. This New Year’s resolution is not going to correct all of your bad eating habits but it is going to provide you with some great health benefits without having to starve yourself or completely alter your daily diet.
