In 2014, Make a Difference with These Nine Food Resolutions That You Can Actually Accomplish

Nine food resolutions that will help you eat better, live better and be a better steward of your community in 2014.

Here's the thing about resolutions: we make them because we want to do better—be better, even. So it's no surprise that food often becomes the focal point for New Year’s resolutions. Unfortunately, "Eat better!" isn't a resolution. That is an unrealistic goal that doesn't give you any parameters for success. And when it comes down to it, what does "eat better" really even mean?

Want to eat better, live better and be a better steward of your community in 2014? Then here are nine food resolutions that will help you do just that. This is not a list or rules and regulations; it's a collection of ideas for how you might start to have a better relationship to what you eat. You may be able to do one thing on this list.

Dallas, TX. It's the biggest little city that could—with the most amazing little-known facts, like having the largest arts district in the country, a park we built out of thin air, a neighborhood with the world's largest collection of art deco architecture, art and sculpture, and a giant river that we physically moved more than eight decades back that's now on its way to being an unrivaled urban oasis.

Introducing yourself to a stranger is scary stuff, it's like we all revert to our awkward middle school selves. This April we challenged the GOOD community to get out there, swallow their fear, and make friends with their neighbors.

Our GOOD Local chapters created events that brought together strangers from all over the city to meet each other. GOOD LA enticed neighbors to become friends with lemonade, a photobooth, and trivia. GOOD Chicago taught strangers to bond over urban agriculture and GOOD SF led fast and furious rounds of speed dating (No love connections yet, but we’ll keep you posted.)
