To the surprise of no one, the leading results of this YouGov poll measuring the top New Year’s resolutions for 2018 are to 1) eat healthier and 2) get more exercise.
We’re guessing that was the No. 1 resolution (or some form thereof) in 2017, 2016, 2015…well, pretty much every year dating back to the invention of the donut.

We’re big fans of Vega Protein and Greens, but there are a lot of good options here!
Good luck on your journey! We’ve got your back.
