    1. Embrace a healthy lifestyle.

    Diet: I recently read Food Rules by Michael Pollan, and it’s simplistic approach to food resonated with me. This year I will make a strong effort to eat mainly organic, sustainable, compassionate whole foods.
    Exercise: Yoga and cardio workouts will happen several times a week. I walk to and from work every day. I also joined a Biggest Loser group with some friends so I will stay accountable to my diet and exercise goals.

  18. Tanya says:

    My resolution is to really try to eat fewer processed, pre-packaged foods and just eat more whole foods. Sometimes it’s hard to do, even as a vegan.

  19. emily says:
