I Want To…

Hi everyone! This is just a quickie list that I came up with (on the bus, actually!) for aspirations that I have for the upcoming year. It’s more of a personal checklist and I wanted to make guidelines for how my school year goes.

Do you make “new school-year resolutions”? How do you keep track of progress?

  1. buy seasonal farmers market vegetables and incorporate them into meals
  2. prepare nutritious lunches and plan meals every Sunday
