December 30, 2021 By Southpoint Tuggeranong

When it's New Year's Eve and the clock strikes midnight, it can be the turning point to achieving all the goals and desires you have. This year some popular hopes for year January 1st include:

Try A New Recipe Each Week
Sometimes, at the end of a long day, all you want to do is order pizza. And that’s understandable. Life can get in the way of cooking every single day. Either you don’t have the time or you have social obligations.

But setting a New Year resolution to cook just one new recipe accomplishes three things: you save money by eating at home, the food is better for you because you know exactly what’s going in it, and you have a chance to brush up on your cooking skills.

Trying a different recipe each week can also introduce you to a variety of dishes and cuisines and cooking the meal won’t even take long — a Google search for easy 30-minute dinner ideas just might yield enough results to last you a whole year.

Do Your Bit For The Environment
You can certainly make a New Year resolution to go vegan or adopt a zero-waste lifestyle, but trying to accomplish those goals can be a jarring change if you’ve never attempted it before.

Instead, take baby steps. Try incorporating one plant-based meal into your diet, start donating clothes and thrifting when you can, carry a reusable tote bag to the supermarket, purchase a set of eco-friendly metal straws, and recycle as much as possible.

Stick to a budget
