Let's not pretend that 2017 was anything more than a ~literal~ dumpster fire.

We're so close to the new year that we can almost taste it. And whether your resolution is to stop using figurative language so freely or to hold back from stealing mugs out of the office kitchen, chances are you'll probably fail. And it'll happen pretty quickly.

According to U.S. News, approximately 80% of New Year's resolutions bottom out by the second week of February, and the Statistic Brain Research Institute says only 9% actually see it all the way through. When the chances of sticking to something like a diet plan fall lower than the odds of a nuclear war, it might be time to reevaluate our approach.

This January, Tasty and Blue Apron are working together to help you kickstart your resolution with a Whole30 reset.

That means Blue Apron's straight-to-your-door meal kits will include ingredients free of sugar, grains, legumes, soy, and dairy. And we're also cooking up something special in the Tasty kitchen.

The best part? For a limited time, first-time users get $40 off with this link when they sign up for their first month. And they're free to cancel at any time.

Regardless of your goal, it's a solid opportunity to help instill healthy eating habits along the way. So even if your resolution is to start calling people out for clipping their fingernails on the bus (seriously, that's gross), you'll feel better about it.

Do any of these profiles apply to you?

The Fussy Eater

Resolution: To expand your palate
What's worse than being stuck with extra ingredients? Being stuck with extra ingredients that you don't even like. Blue Apron kits are precisely portioned so you don't have to feel like a jerk if you toss the leftovers. You might even find something you never thought you'd be into. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Workaholic

Resolution: To spend quality time with the ones you love
It's important to take time to appreciate the relationships in your life, besides the one we all share with Nutella. Don't forget to stop and smell the 🌹🌹🌹. There's an easy way to create a romantic date night at home without straying from the guidelines of a new lifestyle. Or make it a family affair and prepare dinner together if that's your thing.

The Wannabe Health Nut

Resolution: To jumpstart good eating habits with Whole30
The biggest obstacle to overcome is also the most important: cutting out all processed foods. That means avoiding all non-organic, non-GMO food items, as well as alcohol, grains, sugar, dairy, and soy. You're going to be cooking. A lot. Allow yourself to take a night off without having to worry if your ingredients adhere to your plan.

The Environmentally Unconcerned

Resolution: To become more conscious of mindlessly wasteful behaviors
According to The Atlantic, roughly 50% of all produce in the US goes bad before it's consumed. Food waste is becoming a problem around the world so it helps to be mindful of the amount of produce we actually need. Blue Apron partners with over 150 local and sustainable farms to redefine the traditional supply chain. The results are high-quality ingredients that avoid the wasteful detours at grocery stores. Plus the packaging is recyclable. So just put in a little effort, ya bum.

The Chronic Take-Out Regular

Resolution: To learn how to cook
It's time to adult a little bit harder. Once it's at your doorstep, the meal kit basically holds your hand through step-by-step instructions. It's foolproof, and you're going to pick up some techniques along the way. Trust me, nothing makes you feel like a slob more than the delivery guy recognizing you on the street (to be honest that day still haunts me).

The Party Pooper

Resolution: To strengthen your social circle or make new friends
Listen. There's going to come a time where you need to score a few points and redeem yourself for all those cancelled plans and no-shows. Invite a friend over, entertain an acquaintance, or just forge new bonds over a warm meal. It's cold outside but people still want to enjoy each other's company. Break out the wine and stay in. Or send someone a kit as a gift to let them know you're thinking about them. But you know, not in a creepy way.

The Latecomer

Resolution: To work on your unreliable tendencies with contingency plans
Meal kits don't have you running around a store, waiting in a line, or speeding to grab a rutabaga before the store closes. There's no additional commitment involved with Blue Apron either, so nothing's holding you down. Take all the time in the world. Or don't. But it's true that nothing will help you keep your resolution like being prepared.
