Resolutions That Matter 3 TIPS FOR A TRULY HAPPY NEW YEAR

We’re just about to start a new year. Rather than make another New Year’s resolution that you’ll forget about by March, what if you resolved to spend your time better this year? There are plenty of ways to make your time more meaningful. Take a class in person. Have you ever wanted to learn another language? Are you thinking about taking a yoga class? Do it this year! There are plenty of classes or articles online you can turn to, but why not look for opportunities to grow outside your home? Attending a class in person can shake up your routine and give you the chance to make new connections. Give back to your community. Pick a cause you’re passionate about. It could be helping kids, animals, or the environment. Then, find a local organization dedicated to that cause and lend them a hand. You could

volunteer at the animal shelter, collect books for school libraries, organize a fundraising event, or donate to the cause. There are so many opportunities to make a lasting impact on your community. Spend time with the people who matter. Think of the people you love the most, who make you happy to be around, and reach out. Get coffee with that friend who you always promise to catch up with. Call your favorite cousin who you haven’t seen since the last family wedding. Do you have relatives who live out of state? Make plans to see each other in person. If traveling isn’t an option, download a video chat app so you can talk face to face. Once a week, make a point to connect with someone you love.

Time is the most valuable thing we have. This year, look for opportunities to spend your time wisely.

Roasted Cauliflower ‘Steaks’


Ingredients • 1 large head cauliflower • 2 cups Roma tomatoes • 1 red onion, quartered • 1/2 lb green beans, ends trimmed

• Kosher salt • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil • 1 cup balsamic vinegar • 1/4 cup brown sugar • Parsley leaves, for garnish

Directions 1. Heat oven to 400 F. 2. Trim the leaves and stem from cauliflower, but do not break down further. (It should sit like a dome.) In the center of a large baking dish, place the cauliflower and surround it with tomatoes, onion, and green beans, and season with salt and olive oil. 3. Meanwhile, heat a small saucepan to medium-high, and

whisk together vinegar and brown sugar. Bring to a boil, then turn down to low simmer, letting sauce reduce for 15 minutes. 4. Coat cauliflower in glaze and reserve extra for basting. 5. Roast for 1 hour, basting every 15 minutes. 6. Quarter cauliflower and serve with veggies.
