The Savvy Guide to January

2014 has a nice ring to it. Or maybe that’s the ringing in your ears from your New Year celebrations. Either way, we think it’s going to be a good one and we’re excited. You should be too.

DO
Be fair to yourself when you make resolutions
Why? Because you’re doing a pretty good job already and you don’t need to add a lot more to your plate right now. But if you are dieting, try this app to track your progress.

GO
To the Chinese New Year Celebration and Lion Dance
Why? Mark your calendar now, as this annual traditional event in Chinatown is lively, colourful and not to be missed.

GET
Cooking With Coconut Oil by Elizabeth Nyland
Why? Because coconut oil is the new quinoa, and this cookbook by one of our food bloggers is full of healthy and yummy recipes for the new year. 

PLAY
In the snow with a toboggan
Why? Because swooshing downhill at breakneck speed in the fresh air is way more fun than video games.

READ
With your kids
Why? Because later this month (January 27) is Literacy Day and we’re celebrating it all month with these tips to encourage more reading at home.

SURF
thehealthyshopper.ca
Why? So you can find good deals and good information about organic and natural foods for your family.

APP IT
Remember the Milk
Why? Because everyone needs a little help remembering stuff and this year you’re going to get it.

GREEN IT
When you plan your meals this week, incorporate all those ingredients that are still in your pantry or freezer, rather than buying new ones.
Why? Because if you don’t use them now, you never will. And that’s a waste. Supercook.com can help.

HELP
Give a Survival Gift
Why? You’ve probably got ‘do more for others’ on that list of New Year’s Resolutions, and this is one the kids can help with. Let them choose the gift to send and take the time to talk to them about the importance of helping others.
