A new year is upon us!

I'm not a fan of the new year resolution ritual but this year instead of completely turning my back on it, I've decided to utilize the energy it creates to renew some commitments and outline new goals. Why this year and not in years past? Honestly, I need some extra help right now. Finding motivation has become increasingly tougher. Mustering up energy for anything beyond what it takes to take care of two little boys is nearly impossible for me. I need a serious kick in the pants.

One of the goals on the (now very long) list is to make one new recipe a week. Getting in a food rut is certainly easy. And that's where I am - in a rut. I look forward to finding more resources for healthy cooking and sharing them, medium food style, here. Introducing new dishes to my kids is always an adventure and always makes the hubby happy.

Speaking of new resources, I recently stumbled upon Gina's Skinny Recipes at I think Gina's site is a perfect one to share in anticipation of the new year and the resolutions it brings. I appreciate that she includes Weight Watchers information in relation to her recipes. Being a fan of the Weight Watchers strategy, I'm loving it. But even if you're not familiar with Weight Watchers or not a fan, her recipes are healthy and there's something for everyone.

Here's to a wonderful start to a new year. I hope you'll stop by Medium Food Mama often... I truly love the company! And more importantly, I hope 2011 brings you and yours good health and peace.
