5 New Year Food Resolutions to Spice up 2015

So the New Year countdown came and went and most of us must have made a mental note of that difficult-to-stick-to-promise we make every year: the New Year resolution. Our New Year resolutions are always meant to have a positive impact on our lives. However, unfortunately, we find it difficult to follow through with the decisions we make. Consequently, a sense of demotivation seeps in and we get less and less interested in setting New Year resolutions. Does all this sound unsettlingly familiar?

Well, don’t be discouraged yet, for there are a set of resolutions you’ll love to abide by. These resolutions are around food and your food habits (no, you don’t have to go on some measly, starvation-causing diet) so neither your brain, nor your body, nor your will power will dare put up a fight. Want to know what these yummy resolutions are? Read on to find out!

Fully understand at least two new cuisines, desserts and all

Familiarity breeds contempt, doesn’t it? Well, opt for the unfamiliar then. Make an effort to sample new cuisines, understand the key ingredients used, the characteristic flavours and key dishes of the cuisine. This will widen your understanding about different cultures and cultural practices.

Vegetarian is good

I’m not asking you to become a vegetarian, but pluck up the courage to sample at least a couple of vegetarian dishes. Vegetarian food, if prepared well, can actually be quite tasty. So whether it is a well-seasoned bruschetta, crispy corn pakoras or healthy salads, treat your taste buds to some delicious vegetarian food too.

Start a new dinnertime/lunchtime tradition:

After a hard day’s work, most of us gobble down our dinners or lunches without really conversing with the other members at the table. So, to stimulate conversation, make dinnertime fun by trying out something different. Set up a dinnertime tradition (like meatball and spaghetti Fridays or homemade pizza Tuesdays) and invite friends and family over to partake in this tradition.

Pick up a cookbook with easy recipes and attempt to try out all the recipes in the book before the year ends:

Most of us shamefully admit to being bad cooks (if you don’t belong to this inept, helpless group, three cheers for you.) But if you do, it’s time you took steps to make amends. So, purchase a cookbook with really simple recipes and motivate yourself to get through the book before the next year ends. Remember, you’ll have a delicious meal or snack waiting for you on completion of each dish.

Learn about at least 3 new sauces and how to create dips with them:

We love sauces and we love dips. After all, these two delectably creamy additions make even the blandest of dishes taste ah-mazing. So, why not learn to whip up a few dips on your own. You’ll earn respect and adulation from friends, family and self!

Well, here were 5 simple food resolutions you’re sure to be able to abide by with ease. So, go ahead and make then, and then get ready to dig into a yummy plate of food as a reward!
