7 Healthy Recipes to Keep You on Track for the New Year
Happy 2019! I can’t even deal with the fact that we’re in another new year. It’s crazy how fast time goes by the older you get. It’s like whoosh then boom, a year older already!? I entered the New Year extremely sick with a virus that both me and my littlest shared. I’m talking high fevers for like 5 days, coughs, stuffy noses, the works. That’s why I’ve been MIA on here and all across social. The last thing on my mind was posting.
Thankfully we are both so much better now and have recovered. When you have kids getting sick is almost inevitable. They sneeze, cough, and spit up all in and around your face. There is no amount of elderberry, ginger and turmeric that could keep it from coming sometimes. I looked at it as a sort of purging of whatever was left of 2018 so that I was able to have a “fresh” start. I had to be somewhat optimistic.
And even though I was super sick I still could say I had a really great holiday season. My Christmas was wonderful and so was my New Years. Both were very relaxing and I feel I caught up on some much needed rest. I also binged watched Outlander and OMG…what an epic, amazing show. If you need something to binge watch I highly suggest this one. Without Claire and Jamie who knows where I’d be today, lololol.
Ok so on to the real meat of this post. Because I was man down aisle 5 for about 2 weeks, to enter the New Year strong and healthy I made these 7 Healthy Recipes to keep myself on track and you can too. They’re tasty, delicious, and don’t require a ton of time. Super easy meal preps here.

Lentils are an excellent source of plant based protein. I like to make them on Sunday night so I have them ready for the week. Whether it’s for this wrap, soups, or salads, lentils should become a staple in your meal plans.
Would it even be considered a quality meal plan without a smoothie?? This is an easy way to nourish your body and provide yourself with essential vitamins and minerals whether on the go or not.

Since having Oliver I’ve slacked quite a bit in this department but I promised myself this year was going to be the year I get my body back on track. Happy New Year!!!
