Martha Celebrates Dry January (Sort of)
Also, chefs share their resolutions
Happy New Year. The holidays are over and we’ve got a fresh new year to look forward to. The beginning of the year is one filled with resolutions and promises to ourselves and others. And it looks like Martha Stewart and other celebrity chefs are weighing in on their resolutions with a hint of humor.
Martha is celebrating Dry January by using Tito’s for everything but drinking it. In this hilarious video, even her flowers get to imbibe (well…maybe, one martini for the Domestic Diva).
If you’re looking to lower hypertension or cholesterol, the Mediterranean Diet is the way to go. U.S. News and World Report ranks the diet number one for overall health.

Eat This, Not That asked several chefs what their resolutions are. Turns out, they’re just like ours: bake more, use sustainable ingredients, eat healthier, and cook with better spices all top the list of chefs like Christian Panepinto, chef de cuisine at Virgin Hotels Dallas, Donald Young, owner of Duck Sel in Chicago, and Riccardo Orfino, chef and partner at Alice and Osteria 57 in New York City.
