Best Recipes for a healthy new year

If you are anything like me, you’ve had plenty of egg nog and eaten your weight in holiday goodies by now. Also, right about now, I start craving healthy recipes to get my body back on track. Well, at least more healthier meals in between stuffing myself with The Best Shortbread Cookies.

So, I went in search of the best healthy recipes that feel like a splurge but are still healthy. All of these recipes are lighter versions of the foods you love that show healthy eating doesn’t have to boring. In this round up, you’ll find healthy dinner, lunch, snack, and side ideas to help you refresh your healthy eating habits after the holiday.

Whether you are vegetarian, paleo or just starting out lightening up your diet, these recipes are so tasty that you won’t miss all that pie, cookies, and mashed potatoes you’ve been eating the last few weeks. Well, probably won’t miss them. Alright, I’m putting down the cookies now and grabbing the kale.
