New Year’s Day may be a thing of the past for you, but its easy to keep those resolutions going with one of these healthy recipes. They are tasty, easy and perfect for losing weight.We all have the best of intentions when we make New Year’s resolutions for eating healthy on January 1. But no matter how resolute we are on our diet plan right after the holidays (and some weight gain) it gets harder to stick to those resolutions as the year progresses.
That is when it is important to have meal plans of lower calorie recipes to help us stay on track. But a recipe that is low in calories, is not the only consideration.
For me, I need the recipe to be filling and tasty. This makes me think of losing weight as a lifestyle choice, not a diet.
