Easy Pan-Fried Chicken Cauliflower Rice Meal with toppings on the side.

January 1st, New Year’s Day, is a day set aside by us humans to mark the beginning of a new year. There is no natural or seasonal or religious event that marks this day. In fact, it could be a day like any other.

Buy yet, it is the one day that people from around the world, regardless of religion or race, gather together to celebrate one cause: the dawn of a new year.

As my daughter and I rang in the new year, we were ruminating on this fact. So many people; so many different times zones; so many different cultures, religions, and socio-economic backgrounds, all unite on one night to celebrate the hope a new year brings.

On a broader scale, we might have hopes of being better, loving more, giving more, hating less…
And, on a narrower scale, we might have hopes of working out more and maybe eating better….
