After decking the halls and ringing in the millennium, you may be thinking it's time to return to a healthier diet. Carefully balancing raw foods like fruits and vegetables with other nutritionally rich foods like dairy products is always a good first step. To get the lowdown on your daily quota of dairy, check out the offerings at MyRecipes.org.

Recently launched by the Dairy Farmers of Canada, this website offers hundreds of recipes and food preparation ideas presented in a handy recipe book format. With cheese featured as the main or supporting ingredient in most of the recipes, this tasty site is truly a fromage lover's paradise.

MyRecipes.org First, you'll need to set up your personalized recipe book to store your collection of favorites. Click on the recipe book graphic (My Recipes) in the homepage, enter a password, and you're ready to fill the pages of your recipe book with the site's offerings as well as add your own. Next, you can search through the hefty archive by selecting specifics such as meal type, ingredients, and preparation time. For example, if you're looking for a quick lunch alternative featuring veggies, cheese, and rice, the site serves up healthy choices like Broccoli and Rice Gratin, Rice Primavera, and Garden Fresh Rice Medley. All recipes are illustrated and easy-to-follow, and include a complete nutritional analysis.

If your fridge is on the bare side, click on What's in your Fridge, enter the ingredients you've stocked up on, and MyRecipes.org is sure to come up with ideas in a flash. Planning a dinner party? Then, select from one of the five full course menus complete with a listing of food guide servings and nutritional contents. Don't forget to browse through the New Recipes where you'll find the site's latest innovations like Alpine Potato, Ham, and Canadian Swiss Gratin.

Nutrition information for consumers is abundant with FAQs on topics like the importance of calcium, the role of milk consumption in osteoporosis, and ways to reach your daily Vitamin D requirement. There's also a growing list of editorial archives to educate you on everything from the health benefits of yogurt to the best snacking practices. Good for you and your taste buds, MyRecipes.org has all you need to get it right for the New Year.
