Colman’s Mustard Makes Keeping New Year’s Resolutions a Breeze

Colman’s takes salads to the next level with only 10 calories per serving and no fat.

(Santa Barbara, California) – November 28, 2011. New Years Eve is a time to celebrate the past, look towards the future, and resolve to make the next year even better than the last. For many, this means deciding to break unhealthy patterns and get into shape. According to a study conducted by GNC, 38% of people who make new year’s resolutions plan to lose weight and get healthier*.

However, while the goal of regaining health and fitness is a great aspiration, it can often be hard to attain. According to the New York Times, up to a third of resolution-makers won’t even make it to the end of January before they are back to their original habits**. This year, Colman’s Mustard ( wants to make sure that those resolving to eat healthier and lose weight don’t lose sight of their goals.

One of the easiest ways to stay on track with a weight-loss plan is to cook at home instead of eating out. With a fiery flavor that can be added to soups, salads, and vegetable dishes, Colman’s makes home-cooked healthy food exciting and tasty.

In addition to boosting the flavor of healthy meals, adding Colman’s to home-cooked foods can actually help accelerate weight-loss goals. According to CNN Heath’s 10 Spices and Herbs That Aid Weight Loss, research shows that as little as one teaspoon of mustard can raise metabolic rates by nearly 25%***.

Just a dash of Colman’s Mustard Powder with olive oil and vinegar is all it takes to make a zesty, nutritious, gourmet vinaigrette dressing. Those that prefer an even hotter taste can try Colman’s Chili Vinaigrette. Either way, with Colman’s Mustard there is no excuse to get bored or frustrated when trying to lose weight and add more healthy foods to a typical diet.

Colman’s Chili Vinaigrette

4 tbs. olive oil
1 tbs. white wine vinegar
1 tsp. Colman’s Prepared Mustard
4 “splashes” mild green Tabasco sauce
