11 Healthy (+ Easy) Recipes for the New Year

Sweet Corn and Black Bean Quinoa Salad

I know, I know... It's cliche to focus on getting healthy in January, and there are all sorts of (funny and also accurate) memes going around right now about how many days New Year's clean eating/exercising resolutions actually last before we all fall right off the wagon. I personally haven't made any resolutions at all (other than trying to go easier on myself in general in 2019), but I am trying to get things back on track with my diet (and fitness routine) after several weeks of allowing myself to be physically lazy and indulge in (lots and lots of) bad foods. I have no regrets, because I think it's important to allow ourselves (or myself, at least) breaks to be bad and just enjoy, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't physically and emotionally feel the effects of the 9748 servings of chocolate and french fries I've consumed since mid December.

Because of all of this, I'm really focusing on making some of my favorite healthy (or at least healthier) recipes right now. Here are 8 of my current favorites. Just click on the images or links directly below to access the full recipes!

Taco Tuesday! The Best Vegan Tacos Ever

Festive Winter Guacamole

4 Delicious Autumn Soups

Who else is trying to prepare more health conscious meals in the new year?



  1. I'm definitely getting back to the reality of eating my regular, healthful diet after a solid two weeks of wine and cookies, so any inspiration is helpful. I tend to eat a lot of the same recipes over and over because laziness, so new ideas are always appreciated :)

  2. These all look amazingly delicious! I am intrigued by the pomegranite seed guacamole. We are considering planting a pomegranite tree but I was thinking there was not much we could do with the fruit other than juicing it. I guess I am wrong!
