Why do New Year’s resolutions fail? Even though you have every intention to do your best, you may not have the proper support to help you achieve your personal goals.
To help keep new year’s resolutions, we need resources that can give us the information we need to succeed and help us create actionable plans.

Trying new recipes
Self-quarantining during the pandemic encouraged many people to expand their culinary talents, from sourdough bread and endless varieties of cupcakes, to healthy fare such as different types of vegetables and meats. Magazines are the perfect way to keep trying new recipes—to experiment with unusual ingredients you’ve never had before, or to spice up tried-and-true favorites. Check out magazines such as Food Network Magazine, Bon Appetit, Cook’s Illustrated and Fine Cooking for all cuisines, and subscribe to Clean Eating or Simply Gluten Free if you have specific dietary requirements.
