Happy New Year from Crowded Earth Kitchen! Let’s kick off 2016 with a few new and improved food habits, shall we? Not only can these three simple changes improve our health, they can help us save a LOT of money. What’s not to love about that?
#1 Less soda pop, more tea. The negative health effects of soft drinks, even diet soft drinks, have been well researched. Also, commercial sodas are expensive! Think of all of those SuperBowl commercials… those advertising dollars have to come from somewhere, right? Let’s give this simple swap a try. Our bodies and our wallets will thank us.
#2 Less drive-thru food, more homemade freezer meals. My weakness is drive-thru burritos, even though I know they are a nutritional nightmare. The wake-up call for me was when I admitted stopping at a drive-thru after pledging a boycott and a friend said, “Of course you’re having trouble stopping – you’re addicted. You’re addicted to the salt, the MSG, and who-knows-what-all in the chemical soup that is Fast Food.” Gross. I know better, and my body deserves better. Time to stock up on home cooked, individually portioned and frozen soups, stromboli, and other meals which thaw and reheat easily.
#3 Less brown food, more green food. This one is self-explanatory. Most Western diets are higher than they should be in breaded, fried “brown” food, and lacking in fresh, vegetable-based “green” food. Crowded Earth Ktichen is chock full of vegetable-based recipes for on-the-go snacks, simple lunches, family dinners, and a variety of ethnic dishes.
May 2016 bring you good health, and may your kitchen be a place that makes you happy!

These are great food resolutions for people looking for ways to change their health… fizzy pop could also be swapped for plain water 🙂 or even fizzy water with a slice or squeeze of fresh fruit! Happy New Year! 🙂
I agree! Happy New Year! 🙂
Great post, thanks for sharing. I totally agree, especially to cut down on soda pop 🙂
Now I need to follow my own advice (especially regarding the drive-thru burritos!). 🙂 Happy New Year!
Hahaha it is always tempting, ain’t it? Happy New Year to you, too.
