If you’re anything like us, your New Year’s resolutions involve working out more often (nice to meet you, after-work yoga class!) and eating healthier (farewell, 4:00PM sugar fix). Luckily, the Farm at San Benito in Lipa City, Philippines covers both bases. Aside from its many wellness programs, the hotel offers a gourmet vegan restaurant called Alive! that whips up breakfast granola, salads and raw-chocolate desserts using ingredients from the on-site organic garden. But if you can’t make it to Lipa City this year (new resolution: travel more), the Farm’s cookbook offers plenty of recipes to help get that resolution rolling.
