The New You


The New Year is around the corner. You may be excited about that new adventures 2019 may hold, or you may be dreading the fact that another year is already in the books- whichever matches your perspective, with the New Year comes the opportunity to be the best you to date!


Only 8% of folks who make New Year’s Resolutions report actually keeping them by the end of the year. That’s a whopping 92% of people who wind up disappointed by not keeping their promises to themselves. And because the top resolutions year after year are 1) to get in shape and 2) to lose weight, we are here to help!


Whether or not your resolutions include losing weight or getting in shape, the key to living your best life is to make sure you are fueling your body with the very best. Here are some quick tips to keep handy to help you make the most informed and healthy decisions this New Year.


1. Keep in mind - you are what you eat.

Our mamas and grandmamas have been telling us this for the last several decades. But they are right (as always). We are only as good as the things we fuel ourselves with. So choose to get creative with a night in and create a fun and fresh recipe with the family instead of going out on the town, or simply grabbing fast food. If you are needing some inspiration, hop on over to The Kitchen Table and take your pick.


2. Look for food for thought.

In a culture where technology is at every turn, it can be tough to find clean and energizing content. This year, pick up a nice book, commit to walking the dog and find things that make you feel alive and invigorated.

P.S. Pecans are great sources of manganese, thiamine and copper, all nutrients known to help encourage peak brain function. So, for real food for thought, reach for a handful of pecans while you’re investing in mental health! To learn more about using pecans to live a healthier life, swing on over here.


3. Invest in relationships.

Life is waaayy better when surrounded by community. This year, avoid doing life alone and seek folks who enjoy similar interests, or maybe learn from people who have completely different interests. It’s always our goal to treat our customers and business partners like we like to be treated. As a result, we are fortunate to have built lasting friendships with many of our people. We wouldn’t have things any other way!

Regardless of your personal resolutions this New Year, we want to make sure we are helping to provide you everything you need to make this the best year ever! If you’ve got questions, let us know. Drop us a note and we will do everything we can to encourage you in your road to making the most out of life this New Year!
