Tastes of the Old Country Here

New Year’s Resolutions


We all make the same resolutions to ourselves every year, sleep more, eat less, less caffeine blah, blah , blah.  Usually takes me about a month to settle on an actual resolution.  This year it’s setting a bed time and eating more greens.  What about you?

Below are some links you may find helpful in keeping this year’s promise to yourself.

  • Meatless Mondays
  • Packing a lunch? Recipe planning? Recipe planning can make your week SO much smoother. When I fall off track, a tool like this Moleskin planner can really help.  If Moleskin is not your jam, these are pretty, as well as these.
  • Make breakfast ahead of time; it’s one less thing to worry about in the morning. Overnight oats. Here too.
  • Less caffeine: Best chai ever.
