Eating well does not mean sacrificing flavor. Stick to those New Year’s resolutions with these delicious, quick, easy, and healthy recipes.

45 Healthy Recipes for the New Year

Is this for real? 2018 is up and out? JUST as I got used to writing “2018” and not “2017”!?! Man. Dear Time, why are you in such a rush to move so fast? GEEZ!

My next question is, are you making big plans and resolutions for the new year? Like, signing up for that Merengue Dance Class, and following a new fad diet?

Here’s what. I urge you so, so, so, so much to take that dance class, but I double urge you NOT to jump on a fad diet. That is so not going to work. It’s a surefire way to kill your resolution within the first few weeks.

Want to know what works? Smaller changes and attainable (realistic) goals.

Like, cut out the sugar. Maybe you can add more veggies and fruits to your daily diet. Have more fish. Drink a lot more water. Or, COOK MORE!

According to a Johns Hopkins study, people who eat home cooked meals consume fewer calories than those who eat out. People that eat home cooked meals consume less carbs, fats, and sugar than those who cook less.

If you are totally ready to make healthier changes, here is a collection of my favorite Healthy Recipes for the New Year that won’t leave you feeling hangry at the end of the day.

Hoping these will help to inspire you to plan for some healthy cooking in 2019! Have a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
