Six Recipes to Start the New Year Right 1

The start of the year is a great time for new beginnings and I, like so many other people, hope to take the time to refocus on eating healthily. After a season of festivity, it can be difficult to get back on track — and cold, gloomy weather that makes me crave comfort foods certainly doesn’t help!

Starting this week, I’ll be back to regularly posting healthy and delicious recipes — I have a chili recipe planned for Thursday that you won’t want to miss — but before I get to that, I thought I would take the opportunity to look back at some of my favorite healthy recipes from the past year or so. These six meals (I just couldn’t narrow it down to five; you get a bonus) are comforting, easy to prepare, and full of flavor that’s perfect for the cold winter months. In other words, they’re the perfect way to start 2011 off on the right foot, without feeling deprived. If you have a favorite of your own to add to the list, leave it in the comments section!

Happy New Year!

  1. This is a great post… I had made mental note to make a few of these and had forgotten about them. Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Oh I remember that braised chicken with grapes! It was what inspired me to make my croaker with grapes. 🙂

    Happy New Year, Lauren!

  3. Getting back to healthy is definitely in the stars for me this year. Whether my sweet tooth likes it or not.

    Love these recipes!

    Happy new year Lauren!
