Happy Trash Panda Tuesday and Happy New Year! Come each January many of us find ourselves with goals for the upcoming year and ways to better ourselves. We at Trash Panda don’t believe in restriction nor judgement, instead we focus on ingredient quality and education.
Though easier said than done, we believe big change can start with small habits. We’ve listed some of the most common New Year’s resolutions and some associated Trash Panda Approved products to make accomplishing them (hopefully) even easier.

Eat Less Meat
Upton's Natural's Chorizo Seitan
If your goal is to eat less meat, try out vegetarianism, or try veganism, give Upton’s Naturals Seitan a try. All of their products focus on vegan values and are dedicated to simplicity in their ingredients. This Chorizo is a perfect meat substitute and worth a try even if this isn’t your resolution.
Drink Less Alcohol
Athletic Brewing Co. Run Wild IPA
If you’re looking to cut back or eliminate alcohol from your 2022 diet, we recommend Athletic Brewing Company’s Run Wild Non-Alcoholic IPA. Full-flavored, this beverage is great for beer-lovers and is very high-quality to (hopefully) make achieving your goal a little bit easier. You can purchase it here, or opt for any of these non-alcoholic drink options.
Eat More Vegetables
Tattooed Chef Cauliflower Stir Fry
A Trash Panda favorite, Tattooed Chef offers convenient meals full of vegetables. For example, this Riced Cauliflower Stir-Fry. Their products offer a unique way to increase your vegetable intake and truly enjoy them. Try out their variety pack!
Spend Less Money
Trader Joe's Coconut Cream Yogurt
Trader Joe's Rice and Quinoa Fusilli
If your goal is to be more strategic with your budget, taking a look at your grocery shopping habits can be a good place to start. Being realistic about what you will actually eat and what lasts can help stretch your groceries. Trader Joe’s offers large portions of Greek Yogurt at a low price-point, which will also keep you full with its nutritious ingredients. Trader Joe’s Brown Rice and Quinoa Fusilli Pasta is a lower-price than most other pasta alternatives, has a long shelf life, and can be used in a variety of ways. Buy it here.
