My New Year's Resolution: Keep Eating Sugar and Drinking Haupia Lattes

  • 45: the approximate percent of Americans who will make a New Year's Resolution tonight
  • 8: the percent of those who will be successful in keeping their New Year's Resolution

Typically, when we make a New Year's Resolution, it entails cutting something out of our lives: lose weight, cut out sugar, cut back on caffeine, stop drinking...none of which I plan to do in 2016!

So, this year, I decided to shift my perspective on making a New Year's Resolution and, instead, I am making a commitment; a commitment to eat healthier. This doesn't mean I have to deprive myself of all the food and drinks I love! I'm still going to eat sugar and drink my Haupia Latte (probably more than I should). 

What I plan to do, however, is add more fresh veggies to my daily diet.

Before you completely dismiss this idea, consider all the ways you can add veggies to your diet:

Fresh juice or smoothies. I even top mine off with whipped cream...

Add crisp, crunchy cucumbers, red or yellow sweet peppers, and a variety of lettuces to your sandwich. Or, come in to Red Dirt for our grilled veggie sandwich: the Kauai Garden Isle...

You can even swap out that bag of chips for a side of Red Dirt's Broccoli Salad.

Sneak some fresh veggies into your next soup, or try Red Dirt's Tuscan Veggie:

Make a good old fashioned salad. Need some inspiration? Go to Red Dirt's Pinterest board, Ono Grindz, to get a visual taste for some of the salads we have to offer.

If you're still not convinced, try adding grilled veggies to your next Hawaiian Plate Lunch or Bowl:

So, instead of taking something "bad" out of your life in 2016, try adding something good:
