Over 25 Healthy Recipes for the New Year - food ideas to get you back on track after all of the holiday eating!

I have a whole bunch of fantastic healthy recipes for you today to start off your new year on a good note. When it comes to healthy eating sometimes I’m not sure where to start, so this post is going to also help me.  I don’t think I can look at another Christmas cookie for a long, long time.  I teamed up with a group of awesome food bloggers to help motivate you to plan your healthy breakfast and dinner menus as we go forward into 2016.

Speaking of which, how is it 2016 already?!  This year really got away from me (I wonder if there will ever be a year that I don’t say that).  What are your plans for New Year’s Eve?  I got so caught up in Christmas that I never thought about New Year’s Eve and still have no plans.  The week between Christmas and the New Year is always a blur..anyone else?  That is so fitting for my life that I have no plans for New Year’s Eve since I seem to always just roll with the punches…wherever the wind may take me.

I hope everyone has a safe and happy holiday with your friends and family and I will see you “next year”!

These are a few of my favorite things: cooking, baking, Broadway musicals, cruises, Disney World, Christmas, thunderstorms, 80's and country music, and my favorite pastime has ALWAYS been baseball. Go Yankees!

    Every single recipe on your list is absolutely mouthwatering! If I had to choose, I’d give the smoothie bowl a try first (been on a real kick lately) – but really, I want to try them all! Delish!!
