Every year around this time, we all start thinking about making new year resolutions. Getting healthier top most people’s list, but a lot of us struggle to follow through. We either feel overwhelmed to do it all at once or we’re not even sure where to start.

Thankfully, Andrea Fabry created a terrific resolution “to-do” list that paces out real food tasks throughout the year. The list is for 2012, but we think this simple approach is timeless. It’s a great way to incorporate more real food in to our daily lives.

Are you interested in eating healthier foods? Wondering how to sprout, ferment, or dehydrate? Overwhelmed with the thought of getting your family on board? Daunted by the idea of cooking from scratch?

Join us for our Natural Year Challenge: 10 Steps to a Healthy, Natural, and Flavorful Diet!

In just 10 months you could find yourself on your way to a lifestyle you never dreamed possible.

Here is an overview of our 10 steps. Remember, you’re allowed one full month for each step. If you need a month to catch up, no problem! Feel free to follow along at your own pace.

  1. Explore Your Sources. We’ll give you ideas for both online and local food sources. Chances are there is a local supplier near you!
  2. Make a Meat Stock. Extremely sustaining to the body and fights everything from cancer to arthritis, if quality meats are used. We’ll also talk about cooking meats in general, and the healthiest ways to prepare them.
  3. Use Healthy Oils and Fats. Confused about the conflicting information on this subject? You’ll learn how to choose these products with confidence. A Lego demonstration explaining the different options is included!
