According to a Harris Interactive poll, 40 percent of us will resolve to change our lives in some way in the new year. Unsurprisingly, the most popular resolutions are to lose weight, eat more nutritiously, exercise more or a combination of the three.
This year, the National Honey Board wants to help and we have put together some recipes that will hopefully support you with your goals.
Best wishes for a happy, fit holiday season! Here’s hoping that 2014 will be a joyful one and a year where all of us get one step closer to the people that we want to become.
