  •  The LaRue County Extension Office offers 25 tips to eat better in the New Year:

    • To help with portion control, use the smallest plate that will hold your food.

    • At mealtime, serve from the stove instead of putting a serving bowl on the table.

    • Make double vegetables and serve them first, to take the focus off meat.

    • Switch to whole wheat pasta.

    • Eat vegetarian one night a week.

    • Cut back on butter or margarine – newer whole grain breads are tasty on their own.

  •  Someday.

    Somewhere.

    When I move.

    When I retire.

    There are many who do what I call “postponed living.”

    Steven Grellet, a French Quaker who lived in New Jersey in the mid 1800s, said, “I shall pass through this world but once and any good that I can do or any kindness that I can show any human being, let me do it now and not defer it – for I shall not pass this way again.”

  •  The top three New Year’s resolutions are:

    • Spend more time with family and friends;

    • Exercise more/get in shape;

    • Lose weight.
