Happy 2015: 5 easy recipes to start of the new year

Happy 2015: 5 easy recipes to start of the new year

Ok readers, I have an idea about how we deal with the gluttonous overindulgence of the past few weeks. Ready? Amnesia. We didn’t eat it. And, for that matter, we didn’t drink it either. Clean slate. So what are we eating today? Tomorrow? I was thinking something we made at home. Isn’t that half the battle? Eating food you make yourself have a better shot of being more healthy. Also, I was thinking we pack what we’re eating with vitamins since we’re all trying to boost our immune system this time of year. Foods like beta carotene-rich sweet potatoes, vitamin C-jacked kale as well as the live cultures found in yogurt that mop out the digestive system. Sounds like a good start, doesn’t it?

Next week we’re bringing you more inspiration for school lunches, snacks and easy dinners. You know, the usual stuff that will help you survive the first official week back in the grind. In fact, if you’re looking for ideas to make the transition easier, try making a batch of these Ham and Cheese Muffins to throw in lunch boxes or for snacks. You may also want to whip up a batch of this Vegetarian Chili so you have a dinner waiting for you when you get home.

We can’t wait for all the delicious recipes 2015 promises. If you have any special requests, please let us know.
