Happy New Year!
With holiday festivities wrapping up and the anticipated New Year’s resolutions in full swing, it’s time to accomplish your goals for 2013. CNN reported that the number one New Year’s resolution is to lose weight. This probably won’t shock you, but according to Goal Free Living, 38% of Americans make a resolution that involves weight.

Whether you’re looking to eat better, lose weight or just want to try something new, our website has something for everyone. We hope you are looking forward to what 2013 has to offer and wish you a very Happy New Year, from your friends at the National Honey Board!
