The Food Resolution: Greg Engert and Ezekiel Emanuel

By Kelly DiNardo

This is the final installment of All We Can Eat's week-long Food Resolution series, in which I ask a number of chefs, writers, sommeliers and others in the local food community to share their resolutions for 2011. If you missed the previous posts, you can read them all here. Feel free, of course, to chime in with your own resolutions in the comments section.

Eat Less and Fill Half the Plate with Veggies

“I don’t make resolutions, but for most people, I’d say one of the biggies is to eat less,” says Ezekiel Emanuel, special adviser for health policy at the Office of Management and Budget. “We know that the best way to do that is to use smaller plates. Use the dessert plate instead of the main plate. The other is to fill half your plate with fruits and vegetables. This is good for the individual and society. We’d have less obesity and lower rates of heart disease, diabetes and cancer risk.”

Building a Beer Library at ChurchKey
"I want to be able to feature all of the tomes that have guided my vocation as beer director and further reinforce our mission to educate and celebrate all things beery," says Greg Engert, beer director at Birch & Barley/ChurchKey. "I am envisioning BB/CK as a Center for Beer Studies, with a library in addition to the seminars and tastings we already feature."

Kelly DiNardo's work has appeared in USA Today, The Washington Post, Glamour, Redbook and others. Her first book, "Gilded Lili: Lili St. Cyr and the Striptease Mystique," was released in 2007.
