It's the first Monday of the New Year! Before we stress ourselves out with "starting over" or punishing ourselves for indulging over the holidays, let's just get back to the basics of healthy living. Let's prioritize real, nutritious foods over processed foods, quick and healthy meals over daily takeout, and create small habits that build upon each other rather than commit to overwhelming resolutions that fizzle out fast. To help inspire you this week, I'm sharing some of my favorite healthy breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, and even treats to help you feel your best as we jump into the new year!
Let's kick off the day with some nutrient-packed breakfasts. You know I love a smoothie to start the day, but for those colder mornings where a smoothie doesn't sound ideal, here are a couple other ideas. And if you're loving the smoothie mornings, make sure to check out my Start with a Smoothie eBook!
Eggs + Greens + Avocado + Cauliflower Thins
Easy lunches are the name of the game while we're all busy and working at home. I love prepping a bunch of Salads-in-a-Jar so all I have to do is shake them up and pour them onto a plate. Make a few at a time so you're set for a couple days! Also, my Lemon Tuna Salad is a total staple that I love having prepped in the fridge for a quick and easy protein! And for the last lunch recipe - collard wraps using any leftover protein that you have from your dinners!
Here are 3 of my go-to healthy weeknight dinners that come together super quickly and are always on repeat in my kitchen!
Some of my go-to healthy snacks are hard boiled eggs (I love to make them in the instant pot - details here!), vegetables with hummus, guacamole, or romesco sauce, chia pudding, and berries with a handful of raw nuts. Keep it simple and try to avoid packaged, processed snacks that don't have much nutritional value.
To feel our healthiest and our best, it's important to keep sugar to a minimum. That being said, you know I have a major sweet tooth, so I'm not one to skip my daily treat. Here are a couple low-sugar treats that satisfy that sweet craving but keep you feeling fab!
Cheers to a healthy 2021, my friends! Let's do this together!
