2020. After talking about it for so long, it’s finally here! Which seems pretty unbelievable. I’m honestly not sure where the last few months went… wasn’t it September just a few weeks ago?

I have so many exciting new projects in store for this coming year, and I can’t wait to share more about them. But before we dive in, I always like to take a few minutes to reflect on the past year.

After a few not so great years (I’m looking at you 2016-2018), 2019 was actually really good to me! There were some really low lows and a few major life events that really threw us for a loop, but overall the good definitely outweighed the bad.

The biggest thing that happened in 2019 was that my first cookbook was published! I still have to pinch myself when I think about it, but it’s true. The Healthy Eating One-Pot Cookbook is available on Amazon and at bookstores like Barnes and Noble. It’s filled with some really great recipes that make it so easy to cook healthy weeknight dinners without spending a ton of time or energy in the kitchen.

Speaking of not spending a ton of time and energy in the kitchen, this year I really tried to get out of my kitchen and enjoy life more. I took up hiking, remodeled my kitchen, and went on an AMAZING trip to Italy that literally might have been one of the best weeks of my life. (That trip also ruined me. I haven’t tasted food or wine so good, seen sites quite as beautiful or felt so relaxed and unplugged since I’ve been back home. Italy might be heaven on earth. I can’t wait to go back!)

Because I’ve been spending more time offline, and because I’ve also been doing a ton of freelance work that doesn’t get published here, I only shared 44 new posts on Healthy Delicious in 2019. I knew I hadn’t been sharing as much here, but seeing that number just now was a little bit of a punch in the gut. In years past I’ve shared well over 100 recipes! Granted, there are 100 recipes in my cookbook so it’s not like I haven’t been cooking but still. In 2020 I want to return some focus and attention to this blog and try to rebuild the community that we used to have here.

Still, I shared some pretty awesome healthy recipes here. Below are 10 of my personal favorites. A lot of them are low carb, but others feature pasta or whole grains. Almost all of them are perfect for busy weeknights. And they all taste great.
