6 Healthy Recipes to Kick Off New Year | healthynibblesandbits.com

I’m willing to wager that “healthy recipes” is one of the most searched terms around this time of the year. The moment we break out that calendar from its box or plastic shrink-wrap, we’re thinking of fresh starts, good intentions, and healthy lifestyles in the new year.

Aside from making a few food resolutions, I haven’t quite drafted a “how to make 2015 shamazing” plan yet. My mind is still wound up tight on vacation mode, and I’m sneaking in all the pasties, jaffa cakes, and British game shows that I can handle before I leave. My “how to make 2015 shamazing” plan begins when I return home this evening. P.S. I’m not ready to leave England.

P.P.S. Seriously, must I go home already?

Because you have probably been rocking out your new year’s resolutions already, here are 6 healthy recipes from some amazing blogger friends to keep your taste buds happy. Get your bowls, pots, baking trays, and glasses ready because you’re going to want a taste of all these dishes!

      I know what you mean! I’ve managed to limit myself to only 3 pieces of chocolate since I’ve gotten back from my trip. I ate way too many sweets over Christmas!
