New Year's Resolution to Eat Louisville

While everyone else is resolving to eat less and work out more, a better resolution to make is to eat your way through the Louisville in 2015.  Louisville chefs are culinary geniuses who will introduce you to new foods and beverages all year long. The new experiences will widen your view of the world and your social activities have the opportunity to grow during this adventure, both desirable attributes of a resolution resulting in a better you for 2015.

Forming the Resolution

This is not an inexpensive endeavor, so some front end planning will be necessary. Your resolution details can be tailored to your budget. Selecting a menu price range and frequency of visits should be first. Do you want to explore appetizers only?  Is fine dining your preference? Are afternoon visits for dessert only the way to go? Do you prefer to explore brunch or breakfast around the city?

 After narrowing your food focus, compare it to your budget to determine the proper frequency for your visits. Is this a 52 restaurant visits adventure with one per week or is it going to be a fine dining all out extravaganza on a once per month basis? Do you want to eat your way through the alphabet with a restaurant starting with each letter on a bi-weekly basis?

Making the List

The key to success with a resolution is the specifics. You must make the list. You must include dates. Researching restaurants is easily done via internet. Identify the targets. Whether you want to eat through a food blogger's recommendations or a magazine's top picks of 2014, is irrelevant. Find what appeals to you and tie it to the dates on your calendar.  Once your calendar is set, you can invite friends or family to join you in the successful implementation of your New Year's resolution.

Engaging Others in Your Activities

Completion and success are more likely to occur when you announce your intentions. Blogging about your resolution experiences or sharing it through social media will make it known that you have set a goal and that the progress is fun. You will be eating prime rib while your fitness bound friends are on the treadmill checking Facebook. Within a few weeks, they will be calling to join you. Creating blog posts about your food adventures will add another aspect of growth to the resolution through becoming a better writer and/or developing a new skill set. This resolution has winner written all over it. Bon appetite!
