Just in time for New Year’s resolutions, on January 2 we tweeted about our healthy cooking guide, which includes tips for stocking a healthier pantry, cooking with grains and how-to videos. The result? Lots of retweets and hopefully even more nutritious meals.



Speaking of healthy starts, this early January Facebook post was our top performer. It introduced the 28-Day Challenge by Engine 2®, a simple action plan designed to give your body the fuel it needs to function at its best. It harnesses the power of “strong food” — vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds. If you missed it last January, join now.
