Resolution Watch '09

Seven days into '09 feels like a good time for a check in...

ARE RESOLUTIONS BEING KEPT?

We took a quick poll around the office...

Alexis (runs FineLiving.com) -- resolution:

Less take-out, more big-batch, healthy cooking on the weekends. Update: So far, so good. Alexis whipped up Giada De Laurentiis' tasty lentil soup and has been enjoying all week.

Danielle (FN's interactive marketing guru) -- resolution:

Fewer processed frozen meals and more packed lunches. Update: Has fallen off the wagon twice this week with her frozen faves -- but hey, there was a sale. To boost the healthy factor, Danielle makes her own side salads.

Mark (FN Dish contributor) -- resolution:

Bank more green with bag lunches versus pricey pre-made sandwiches. Sense a theme here? Update: Three for three this week -- two hand-rolled turkey wraps and one amazing pot of chili (inspired by some great tips and enhanced with his secret weapon -- chocolate!).

Emily ( FoodNetworkStore.com) -- resolution:

Less coffee! Loves the taste, hates the jitters. Update: Tea and tea only for over a week! She attributes her mighty resolve to the Mighty Leaf variety pack.

Rachael (FN Dish producer) -- resolution:

Joint plan with her boyfriend to give up beer FOR THE YEAR. Update: So far, so good! However, wine is still fair game and Rachael just enjoyed a great sparkling Bonarda from Italy.
