I want to wish a Happy New Year to you all…
I hope you spent time reflecting on the year: counting your blessings, tallying your vices, and simply enjoying some well overdue time with family and friends.
Aside from silly hats, midnight kisses, and champagne hangovers there is one New Year’s tradition that almost everybody participates in: the dreaded New Year’s Resolution.
Of all the people I talked to over the holiday, there was one overwhelming pattern in New Year’s resolutions: “I need to eat healthier.” I’d say eight out of ten people I talked to listed this as their main goal for 2016.
This isn’t just anecdotal evidence. If you look at the top New Year’s resolutions, you’ll notice a serious pattern… most of them have to do with staying healthy. In a recent Nielsen survey, the top resolution Americans made was “Staying Fit and Healthy.” The second was losing weight, which tends to go hand-in-hand with healthy eating.
Luckily for all of you health-minded resolutionists out there, it is getting easier and easier to find high-quality health food. Almost all grocery stores now carry a robust section of organic foods, and even packaged foods free of artificial ingredients.
The trends have been going heavily towards a world with healthier, organic, local, and generally more responsibly manufactured foods. Just look at the sales figures for organic food over the past few years, and the projections for this year and the next:
