Philips Gadgets Offering this 2013

New Year, new you, and new resolutions too 
Forget the clichés—make your resolutions truly meaningful 

Every January, after the euphoria—and the eating and shopping binges—of the holidays subside, the resolutions inevitably come. From trimming one’s waistline to simply getting out of bed five minutes earlier, people swear by these resolutions year after year.

Indeed, the New Year is a wonderful time for making a change and promoting positive vibes. But don’t you notice that pretty much the same generic resolutions pop up every year? Losing weight and eating right are excellent resolutions to live by, but it’s quite ironic to be making old resolutions to welcome the New Year!
In place of cliché resolutions, Philips is suggesting these doable, meaningful resolutions that have a bright chance of igniting the change you’ve always wanted through and beyond 2013:

Give up the grease, while still enjoying fried goodness
A lot of people strive to eat healthier, but are unsure where or how to start. A great first step to a healthier diet is cutting down on greasy fried meals. But really, who can say no to fried chicken? To help make fried meals a notch healthier, Philips offers its AirFryer.
This innovative and revolutionary fryer has its own patented Rapid Air technology that lets you fry food without oil, resulting in dishes that have up to 80% less fat compared to deep-fried food.
