Rethinking your Resolutions

It’s a new year and for many people now is the time to establish new goals and resolutions for themselves. Have you struggled to stick to your resolutions in previous years? Do you find that as the weeks pass it becomes harder and harder to stick to the “rules” and “restrictions” you’ve imposed on yourself? Typically, the resolutions people set for themselves are very specific, restrictive, and not very sustainable-lose 20 pounds, cut out ALL sugar, stop eating out. No wonder why so many people also tend to feel a bit more depressed and lethargic during the winter months of January and February! While ambitious, resolving to drastically change eating habits or lose weight can often lead to ineffective and even dangerous ways in which to achieve them.  To ensure safe and lasting results, always aim to frame your goals around the SMART criteria (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, Timely). Utilizing these parameters, it becomes easier to establish and maintain the steps to take towards your goals.

To ring in this new decade, rethink resolutions and instead of listing things that should be eliminated think about things that can be added into your overall lifestyle and day to day schedule that aid in achieving your goals. For example:

Instead of stating “I will cut out all sugar” a more appropriate and attainable resolution would be “I will replace my sugar-sweetened snack with fresh fruit and nuts or hummus and whole grain crackers 5 days out of the week”.  And instead of putting a quantitative number around weight, re-word your resolution to say “I will manage my weight by incorporating a 30 minute, post-lunch walk 6 days a week”.

This new year, make it your best year yet by establishing resolutions that you feel good about and can practice all year long. Choosing nourishing foods that are balanced in protein, carbohydrates, and fats while including regular physical activity will certainly make for a happy new year!

What our clients are saying

“You know that I haven't been home (India) for a long time now.  I miss my mama, I miss the food, I miss the smells, I miss the people. Starting yesterday, I started to smell my mama's kitchen at Parker.  I KNEW something Indian was brewing; I could smell the garam masala!  Thank you for the delicious tofu curry.  It made my belly and soul happy.”

“Thank you so very much for the AMAZING dinner you provided for the President, Dean and Jim & Marilyn Simons. They really enjoyed it!! It was perfectly thought out and delicious. Your expertise and impeccable presentation and taste were truly appreciated!”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”

“I just wanted to touch base as another school year draws to end. I cannot thank you enough for how smoothly this year went. Chef Felix [Herrera] and his staff made it seamless in a year with lots of wrinkles.    ”

“Thank You! Chef Budd [and team], you overcame a new online ordering system (and hundreds of labels daily!), provided creative and healthy menus, continued to connect with local farmers to incorporate locally sourced ingredients, and worked tirelessly to serve the school community on three campuses.  While it feels like you are all a little like the Wizard of Oz right now, working behind a curtain in a kitchen far away, we sense your smiles and your passion to deliver the best possible service during these trying times. We are all so grateful!”

“I have really appreciated the wonderful cafeteria staff we have via Culinart and the thoughtful meals they provide our kids. They're truly one in a million. I have also really appreciated the dedication Parker and CulinArt share to sustainability and green practices on campus. I am so thankful that Parker has chosen CulinArt, a company that shares Parker values, and that they took the time and effort at such a hard time to make sure that Parker is always on the forefront of green practices and safety - never compromising.”

“Even though we see challenges every day, each one of you rises to the occasion and makes it seem so easy. I cannot express how impressive it is to see you all work in such a fashion. You are true professionals.”

“I ALWAYS feel spoiled by the meal offerings at CSW (The Cambridge School of Weston) and am entirely grateful for it. As I eat today's delicious and lavish lunch (and think about yesterday's as well), I can't tell you how much I feel so well cared for here, both with the food and by the dining hall staff. CSW cares for us in so many ways, both big and small.”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“We can’t thank you enough for all the time and effort you put into getting this emergency shipment of water to our Waco, Tx office. As always, you guys pulled out all the stops and did everything possible to help! I know it doesn’t seem like much to you, but our employees in TX that need drinking water are truly grateful. I feel so fortunate to work with such true professionals. I think you set the bar that your competition wishes they could match!”
