The Ultimate Healthy Recipes to kickstart the New Year

There are two things I despise most about the new year-


The television advertisements promoting some quick-fix weight loss product or life changing method of losing weight in the new year.


Magazines with pictures of Kim Kardashian, circa 2012, touting a regime which makes you look like her in 2 hours! 

While I make a conscious effort to ignore these silly antics, it’s often difficult to do so when your friends or family start echoing these thoughts or consider going on one of those plans. In an ideal world, I’d love for those closest to me (or everyone, rather!) endorse a balanced approach to nutrition and lifestyle but alas- It is easier said than done. 

I thought it would be neat to share a collation of recipes which would be perfect to kickstart the new year but not just that- Recipes which can easily be part of your diet or lifestyle irrespective of what time of the year it is. I’ve broken it down into healthy breakfast recipes to kickstart the new year- Followed by healthy sweet vegan recipes, healthy sweet paleo recipes, healthy sweet low carb recipes and healthy sweet high protein recipes

Why sweet? Because sweet foods are often most associated with ‘poor health’, and these will prove otherwise.

    1. If it weren’t Christmas Eve, AND if I weren’t already in my jammies, AND if the stores weren’t already closed, I’d go get bananas and make the banana muffins! Can’t wait to try them and some other of the recipes I just read.
      I have 3 little grandsons who are pretty much bottomless pits, so I’m going to share your recipes and blog with their mom.

    2. Sooooo…when do you start shipping? Cause I just want all of these. In a box. On my front door. With a red bow. And a cat.

    3. I’m with you, a fan of eating balanced all year round. The whole kick the new year off with a new diet or fresh start approach, which is everywhere right now, puts a knot in my knickers.

    4. I’ve tried a few of your recipes now and absolutely love them all! You’ve proven that eating well certainly doesn’t mean sacrificing yumminess! Love this blog so much!
