2015 is here! If this year is like most other years, New Year’s resolutions are coming. The gyms are going to be more crowded for about a week and people will resolve to eat healthier for about a day until they realize that they just can’t live without their junk food.
As a food vendor, your new year’s resolutions might be a little different than most other people’s resolutions. Many of them will probably have to do with your job as well. The following are 8 New Year’s Resolutions for food vendors.
- Learn to cook healthy food while the demand is high: Don’t worry, the demand will only last for about the first week of January. Sure, there will be some people who will last a little longer, and some amazing people who last the whole year, but for the most part, you won’t have to deal with kale for too long.
- Spend more quality time with your family: Yes, that quality time can be having family members make food or help to prepare the food for your next work day.
- Spend less money on cooking tools and equipment: It doesn’t matter that you’re already planning to make up for the deficit in 2016. That’s not the point. You’re going to spend less in 2015.
- Don’t sweat the small stuff: The “small stuff” is anything that doesn’t have to do with work.
- Learn to cook other kinds of food that you’re not used to making: You might need some guinea pigs (see resolution #2).
- Get more sleep: Ha! Just kidding about that one. What’s sleep anyway?
- Start a garden (or expand the one you have) and use the food from the garden in the kitchen: You’ll need someone to weed (see resolution #2 – you can be the supervisor)
- Don’t feel bad when most of these resolutions get broken before you really even begin them: Nothing else to say.
- Bonus: Make sure you’re covered with a food vendor insurance policy.
