We've all seen it this time of year: the gym is full of new members all trying to make good on their New Year's Resolutions. But soon the most popular machine will be deserted as the best of intentions are abandoned. But not you! This is your year, the year that you will stay on track and reach your goals, because you have honey on your side, and that's one sweet ally!

In addition to adding a touch of sweetness to any dish, honey has a multitude of culinary benefits to help you stay on track all year, such as being an emulsifier. That's right, honey works as a binder and thickener for sauces, marinades, dips and, in particular, dressings.

Honey is an ideal ingredient for homemade salad dressing. Now we're not talking about just your basic balsamic vinaigrette; no, we're talking about sweet and tangy, creamy and herby dressing here, all based with honey and designed to keep you pumped up as you work towards your goals! With so many flavor options, no salad will be boring and no goal unattainable.
