We are assuming your 2017 New Year's resolution goals look similar to ours: aiming to lose weight, exercise more, spend less, minimize stress and volunteer more. Halfway thought the first month of the year, we are already needing some motivation to get back on track and CRUsh these 2017 healthy ambitions.
In true CRU-style, we are here to help with a couple of healthy AND DELICIOUS suggestions from Chef, Erin Zircher and Cocktail Director, Jess Goldfarb. Hope you enjoy their spin on healthy eating & drinking as much as we do.
Cheers from the CRU CREW!
