JANUARY 2010 TASTES NEWSLETTER
Not everyone is a fan of New Year's resolutions, but we like them. They're a way to take inventory of one's life, to let go of the old and make room for the new. Whether you want to be healthier and lose weight or enjoy life more and travel the world, we have some great ideas to help you kick-start your new and improved way of being.
A heart-healthy diet has nothing to do with dieting. It's simply a way of eating foods low in sodium, fat and cholesterol. Check out our list of Heart-Healthy Restaurants around the country that offer wholesome cuisine without sacrificing taste.
Sometimes getting healthy requires a little help from the professionals. Our compilation of Top 10 Health Resorts features luxurious properties devoted to wellness. From France to Turkey and New Zealand, these retreats all offer unique health-promoting programs. Yoga devotees should contemplate staying at one of our Top 10 Yoga Retreats, including one in Mexico.
South of the border, we're also proud to feature the Top 10 Hotels in Mexico. North of the US next month will be the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver and Whistler. We've compiled an Olympic Games Guide, featuring top restaurants, hotels, a destination planner and more. In Whistler, we enjoyed a stay at the Taman Sari Royal Heritage Spa, an idyllic retreat that draws from Javanese traditions and offers holistic herbal healing.
In Louisiana, festival season starts now, and doesn't end until the hot, humid summer hits. Louisiana's Music Festivals are a great way to get more fun out of life. Make 2010 the year you finally attend Mardi Gras or JazzFest, and your ears, and your stomach, will thank you.
If you resolve to make the world a better place, try the 2010 Toyota Prius, a third-generation edition that boasts a roomier and sleeker design while retaining its distinctive contours and fuel-efficient credentials. Fuel-efficiency was also on our minds when we collected cars for our list of Top 10 Hybrids, which includes categories such as sedans, crossovers and SUVs.
You'll find more good stuff online, including our health section, blog, restaurant reviews, culinary events calendar, hotel write-ups and much more. Or be a critic yourself and review a restaurant or hotel on our site for our millions of visitors to read.
