    Yoga is a great resolution – after a two-year hiatus, I started doing it again, and it was so nice to be back on the mat. I definitely realized how frustrating it was to try things that I could easily do before (and this time, being very shaky at!)

    My own healthy new years resolution is stick to my schedule. I tend to cram too many things in and get overworked, so I am focusing on making a schedule that works and sticking to it — definitely healthy and needed for my sanity!

    Happy New Year!

  2. LeahJanuary 2, 2013 at 6:30 am

    I’m exercising 5d/week and eating more whole foods.

  3. GretaJanuary 2, 2013 at 6:38 am

    My healthy new year’s resolution is to incorporate more strength training into my workouts. It’s so easy to always resort to running since it’s the most efficient way to burn calories, but strength training would help me round out my workouts and use different muscles.

  4. GretaJanuary 2, 2013 at 6:43 am

    I shared this giveaway (and your website) via email with my husband, who is extremely lactose intolerant. As you know, it’s something that makes meal times a little challenging, especially when dining at restaurants and at the houses of our friends and family. We are excited to have found a resource for new recipes, so he can continue to enjoy meals along with the rest of the world! Those protein chips look delicious!

  5. Nikki VJanuary 2, 2013 at 7:44 am

    I’d like to start being more active. My goal is to walk a lot more!

    I am giving up soda and starting to exercise 3 times a week to kick start my year into a healthier me!!

  11. Sally HaldorsonJanuary 2, 2013 at 7:54 am

    While my resolution may not be “body” health-minded, it is “mental” health-minded. I resolve to read more books. Reading books keeps me balanced and recharges my imagination. When I don’t read, it’s because I’ve let life distract me with either media or technology. Of course I have some weightloss and eating goals in mind for the year, but this resolution is one I can really succeed with, and sometimes that is enough to spark improvement elsewhere.

    • Alisa FlemingJanuary 2, 2013 at 8:05 amAuthor

      Mental health is every bit as important – that is a great resolution Sally. Good luck with it!

  12. Rachel K.January 2, 2013 at 8:03 am

    I shared this on Pinterest!

    I made two healthy resolutions! First to control my portion sizes, and second to work out at least 30 mins every day.

  13. JessicaJanuary 2, 2013 at 8:10 am

    Although I’m on the soy-free vegan diet, I want more vegetables in my life, so I’m trying to cut out the unhealthy vegan options. I’m also increasing my exercise. I want to still be up and running when I’m in my 70s just like my parents!

  14. Venalda GuptaJanuary 2, 2013 at 8:16 am

    I have two healthy resolutions also: One is to cut my sugar intake dramatically. I LOVE a good snack but they have to be GFCF with a decent amount of protein and fiber so these should be perfect for my family. I also am going to get more exercise, including some serious flexibility training. I can’t wait to try these snacks to see if they help me with my first resolution.

  15. MelissaJanuary 2, 2013 at 8:22 am

    No need to enter me in the contest, but I must say, I’m intrigued by the idea of a lemon/coconut protein bar! Those are two of my favorite flavors and I can’t believe I never thought of mixing the two. I’ll look for these bars on my next shopping outing. In the meantime, my “resolution” is to take more walks. Like you mentioned with the 20 minutes of yoga twice a week — I want to do that with nice, by-myself, walks in the open space area near our house.
    Onward! And happy DF/GF 2013!

  16. Ami LJanuary 2, 2013 at 8:22 am

    I’m going to incorporate yoga back in too and also meditate more regularly!!

  17. RachaelJanuary 2, 2013 at 8:23 am

    Due to multiple food allergies and undesirable consequences when I try new things, I’ve been living on an extremely limited diet for quite some time. My goal this year is to work hard to expand my diet. I’ve been stuck in a rut and routine and need a change! Hard to do with 4 others to cook for, including my two dairy-free children.

  18. Kaaren WinklerJanuary 2, 2013 at 8:27 am

    Adding Pilates to my exercise routine (in addition to my 3xweek cross training sessions) and walking my dog more!

    One of my resolutions is to make time to eat better. I have three kiddos that keep me busy. My youngest is three months old and is breasted exclusively but cannot tolerate any dairy that passes through to his milk. So, I am on a strict dairy free diet and always looking for some good heathy snacks. I would love to try these.

  24. Debbie E.January 2, 2013 at 8:40 am

    My resolution is to stop accidentally eating foods with dairy. I have a milk allergy and have been slipping on watching my foods that I eat and it totally puts me in great pain for days. So my resolution is to be more aware of what I am eating!

  27. KimJanuary 2, 2013 at 8:49 am

    Get back into taking care of myself. I’m starting off slow with a commitment to do some form of exercise at least 15 minutes/day.

  28. MindyJanuary 2, 2013 at 8:50 am

    My younger son and I are going dairy-free starting today to see if it clears his eczema and helps with his ADHD. I’m doing it to support him but I wonder what changes I will see!

  29. Marcia SchmidtJanuary 2, 2013 at 8:59 am

    I made a resolution to get a healthy mind. Think more positive and be more appreciative. :-)

  55. HannahJanuary 2, 2013 at 7:04 pm

    One of my New Year’s resolutions is to read less of the news. That may not sound like a healthy goal, or even a good goal, but I’ve realized that the more often I follow the news, the more anxious and depressed it makes me. It just always focuses on the tragedies, and while it’s necessary to know that they do exist, I don’t need to know all of them, and I don’t want to dwell on it. There’s so much more good that doesn’t make the press. :)

  56. NicoleJanuary 2, 2013 at 7:47 pm

    My New Year’s resolution is to practice better sleep hygiene. No more staying up past 11:00pm to watch “just one more” episode of Mad Men, Game of Thrones, Homeland, Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey etc., because I can never stop at just one:)

  57. Jordan DJanuary 2, 2013 at 7:49 pm

    My new years resolutions also include getting to yoga class at least twice a week! I’m trying to sleep more and stress less as well. Thanks for the awesome giveaway :)

  58. DevraJanuary 2, 2013 at 7:51 pm

    This is a great giveaway! I made three resolutions (although I like to think of them as promises to myself):

    1. Walk 4 times a week
    2. Go to meditation weekly
    3. Invite friends over to my house each week for a homemade meal (so that I can socialize more, show my love for friends, and maintain my gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free lifestyle)

  59. M'Isha ThompsonJanuary 2, 2013 at 7:54 pm

    My resolution for this year is to eat less meat and more whole foods. I also want to exercise more. This time last year I committed to being vegan and that lasted for 7 months. Now I want to eat more locally and compassionately.

  60. LorettaJanuary 2, 2013 at 9:40 pm

  67. Michelle BJanuary 3, 2013 at 3:06 am

    I plan to be more active. I have been using a pedometer to track my steps. An inactive day at home can be as low as 4,000 steps, while a crazy long day at Disney or Universal (over vacation) was over 25,000 steps. Eating better is also part of my plan. I hope to lose a few pounds, too.

  72. Cindy SJanuary 3, 2013 at 4:43 am

    On top of my PT, I’m adding cardio 3 times a week. I bought an exercise bike for my house so there are no excuses about not wanting to go to the gym! I also want to start leaning a little more vegetarian/vegan. I went from having meat in at least 2 meals a day to having it once a day or not at all. I’ve also cut out wheat which was causing me the same issues as dairy and I’m starting to feel better.

  73. Carol TrautweinJanuary 3, 2013 at 5:36 am

    I’m now following you on Twitter too! My 2013 resolution is to start running again & to take my dog with me so he can join me in getting fitter & healthier! We were running 5Ks & even did a 10K in 2010, only ran a few times in 2011 & didn’t go running at all in 2012 (I did a boot camp class for awhile but no running). I work 2 jobs & the protein bars would really help cut down on the fast food & vending machine “meals” I eat since in always on the go. I will share via Facebook as soon as I get off my phone!

    I choose a word for each year to dig into into every aspect of my life. Last year: journey. One of my journies in 2012 was having my gallbladder removed and then finding out that I have a dairy allergy. Now, for 2013, I have chosen foundation. I have so many new things starting this year…job, house, car, dairy-free life, so I am working to lay the foundation for future well being spiritually, mentally, health-wise, etc. Thank you for your encouragement!

    I’m not really much of a resolution person. I like to make step changes in day-to-day habits and then stick with them. I exercise every weekday, and have recently upped my cardio time to 50 minutes. I am focusing (resolving?) on being better about strength training too, and I’d love to get back to yoga.

    In 2011 I learned that I was gluten intolerant, and I’ve been getting increasingly better about eliminating gluten from my diet. Just gave up beer for the new year. (Wine and cider are great anyway!).

    The simply protein snacks would be a great help in eating healthy and gluten free!

  101. LynnJanuary 3, 2013 at 8:51 am

    My goals for the year ahead are to decrease inflammatory foods in my diet, to walk more and to prioritze my health and happiness into my decisions.

  102. Erika KJanuary 3, 2013 at 8:53 am

    My healthy resolution for 2013 is to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables (I’m thinking one smoothie a day) and exercise (Wii or walking) once a week (gotta start somewhere, right?).

  107. LaceyJanuary 3, 2013 at 9:20 am

    I have resolved to do some form of exercise 4 times a week. Whether is be cardio, lifting, riding bikes with the kids.

  127. Aimee DJanuary 3, 2013 at 11:14 am

    My resolution this year is to become re-acquainted with my treadmill. I have neglected it for far too long, and my lack of energy shows it.

  128. TeresaJanuary 3, 2013 at 11:17 am

    I’ve been vegan for almost three years and recently gone gluten-free due to sinus problems. My goal this year is to continue moving towards a more whole foods diet and less processed junk, as well as continuing to be more self-sustaining in the kitchen. I also want to incorporate spin class back into my life!

  129. CatherineJanuary 3, 2013 at 11:18 am

    I certainly did make a healthy resolution (actually prior to new years) to eat clean(er) and bring back exercise on a regular basis :-) Happy New Year!

  130. Kristin KJanuary 3, 2013 at 11:34 am

    After feeling so much better after being diagnosed as gluten, corn & dairy intolerant, I have focused so much on trying to run again. However that means I’ve let my Pilates classes slip so I plan to work them back into my routine.

  131. HollyJanuary 3, 2013 at 12:08 pm

    Wowzers! What a great giveaway! Thank you for everyone that has put this together :)

    My New Year’s resolution is currently in action- 1 Green Smoothie a day!
    I enrolled in a six weeks program. I have always been scared of them. I guess it is more of the fact that all of the leafy greens I cook and eat are to be blended and swallowed now, hehe. It has been a bit of challenge. I don’t eat breakfast often as I am always on the go so this is one of the reasons why I took it upon myself to do this and to make it an everyday routine. Incorporating a Simply Bar Protein Bar would be the icing on the cake! Plus they are DATES free! It has been very hard for me to get around a good bar as I am not a fan of dates! I wish you all the best! Thank you for this chance!

    Happy New Year!

  135. RosieJanuary 3, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    I did – mine is to not stress and fret soo much about not having a job and no unemployment I think I’m fairly positive about it, but I put so much time into job hunting that I haven’t been eating right or getting the right amount of exercise. So mine is to keep a HEALTHY balance while job searching. Take time to go for walks, cook nice meals, etc. I’ve been doing this for a couple of weeks and I’m feeling bouncier already!!!

    • Alisa FlemingJanuary 3, 2013 at 5:20 pmAuthor

  139. ~April~January 3, 2013 at 1:58 pm

    My healthy goal this year is to eat more fresh ingredients and less processed foods. And as I am new to lactose intolerance, I hope to discover more dairy-free products in my local grocery stores.

  140. Christina BundenthalJanuary 3, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    I’m gluten, soy and lactose intolerant, as well as on a quest to live cruelty-free. My resolution is to figure out a way to incorporate less animal products into my life (I’m free-range chicken and sustainable fish only), but keep my protein content high enough for my active exercise regimen. I’m reading like crazy and gradually coming up with a plan. I do as many vegan or vegetarian days as possible, but I’d like to do more. Dietary restrictions are not going to get the best of me!

  141. Lauren LewisJanuary 3, 2013 at 2:52 pm

    The Chili protein chips have me intrigued, I can’t wait to see them on the shelves of my local grocer.

    My new year’s resolution is make time for creativity and spontaneity. Last year was such a whirlwind and it seemed that every last second was scheduled. I hope to leave some more wiggle room this year for random adventures in love with my husband, in the kitchen whipping up vegan delights, and at the table crafting. Life is too short to always be a servant to the day planner.

  142. SueJanuary 3, 2013 at 2:57 pm

    I don’t believe in New Years Resolutions, but a fairly new healthy habit was to eliminate gluten.

    I guess we can call it a resolution (really, these are goals I’ve had for awhile, but never mind) to go to dance and yoga class weekly, strength train 2-3x weekly and walk/run with my dog daily.

  175. Mariah CraigJanuary 4, 2013 at 7:07 am

    I have made multiple resolutions for this year in regards to my health.
    While battling Lyme disease, it is crucial that I follow the steps of not only taking my medication, but to eat well, exercise daily and sleep well.
    As I already follow a plant based diet, the eating is taken care of. I want to push that sector of my life by getting more people actively involved in that. Also, like yourself I am now adding yoga into my week as a beneficial activity for myself. My last two goals are to be asleep by 11pm five nights a week and to meditate every day :)

    Happy New Year and all the success with yours and all the followers goals!
    I will post this to my Twitter as well.

  203. Rose-MarieJanuary 5, 2013 at 12:38 pm

    Yes – I want to cook more meals – I tend to buy things that don’t need much preparation, such as hummus and chips, yogurt, raw nuts, etc., which isn’t bad, but not the same as having balanced meals. For a while I had been making all sorts of nice things like fish, spinach, chicken soup, etc., but b/c I started not being home much and stopped buying anything that needed peeling, chopping, baking, roasting, etc… But I feel hungry no matter how much I eat of the other stuff b/c I miss meals. It’s boring to be home alone cooking, but I need to make it more fun, invite a friend now and then, play music, etc.

    My New Year’s Resolution is not to make resolutions and to be kinder to myself. Let me explain. I brow-beat myself everyday and when I do that, I shut down and guarantee myself failure from the start. So I’m focusing on the here and now, rather than the past or the future, and taking it just one step at a time. One of my 1st steps is to do a sugar cleanse and break the cravings. My diet is otherwise clean and wholesome. I’m looking forward to living in the present this year, moving gracefully and intentionally into the future, instead of worrying about what the future may hold if I do or don’t succeed at whatever! This year is a fresh step into my own personal freedom.

    I went completely free of dietary allergens, gluten, dairy, soy, etc… – right before the holidays!

    I decided to “seize the day” and not wait for the New Years. After all, if you can change at the hardest time in the year and succeed, your chances of continuing those changes are greater!

    So far so good – I’ve been doing it for over a month now, and feel great! And now it seems downright easy – after surviving all the egg nog and sweet temptations of the holidays!
