We are counting down to the new year! We want to 2013 to be a great year for you!

Today’s tip for making 2013 a great one: 

Be brave! Making changes requires a little bit of bravery. We want you to be brave when making changes.

Be brave in the kitchen! Try new spices out. Try new recipes, look for a new recipe each week and try it out, even if you are not sure you’ll like it. We have 100′s of recipes pinned on Pinterest for you to check out.

Be brave in your workout! Maybe you’ve never tried yoga, or zumba. Maybe you’ve never taken a dance class. This year we want you to be brave and try new ways of working out.

Be brave in front of your friends/family/coworkers. It might be one of the hardest aspects of making change, the worry over what others will think. This year we want you to be brave and tell people that you are plant-strong!

Be brave and create community! Being a part of a community is a wonderful way to stick to your new plant-strong goals. It could be online, in our E2X community, it could be a facebook group that you join or create. Maybe you want to start an Engine 2 meetup in your town. Whatever it is, be brave and create community. We’re in this together!

Be brave in shopping.  Find produce you’ve never tried, check out a local co-op or join a CSA. Try new grains in the bulk section.

Be brave in making changes! This is your life and your health. Be brave in making changes to make your health the best it can be!

2013 – the year of the brave!
