It’s almost 2018. Where the heck did 2017 go? Seriously, it flew by but we're excited about 2018 and what’s to come! It's the time when we review the previous year and set goals, plans, and new commitments. Many people make health-related resolutions and commitments in the new year. It's not always successful (for us too!) but that's because they aren't always completely realistic (guilty.). Most of us can't wake up one day and decide that we are going to change our lives. And, if that's you, head to our comments below and share some tips.

Flipping the switch on January 1 is pretty hard to do. Many of us don't make it to Valentine's Day before we are off-track and skipping those healthy recipes. However, what tends to work better is making small changes to build up to the big ones. That may be drinking more water and moving your body for 30 minutes a day. It could be eliminating what food item or group that isn't working for your body. It could be as simple as eating more healthy recipes!

Change starts one meal or one decision at a time. Eating more plants and less processed foods are also great options. We love food here at The Endless Meal so we pulled together the best healthy recipes to kick off the New Year with tasty, good-for-you meals that help you move away from the Christmas cookie habit! No shame though, Christmas cookies are the best, right?

These healthy recipes are easy to make, super delicious, and the perfect way to start the year off right. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all covered and these recipes don’t even seem like they are healthy. Win-win!

So, this January, spend some time in the kitchen and around the table with a few of these delicious recipes!
