Every year, we all find ourselves setting new goals that we’d like to accomplish by the time December rolls back around. However, a lot of the time, we find that it’s a bit difficult to stick to our plans and really follow through with our New Year’s Resolutions – but not this year! If you’re determined to make 2016 one of your healthiest, the first place to start is by discovering new healthy recipes that you can keep handy for when you’re all out of ideas. Take a look below to learn a few healthy recipes that can be used this winter.

Macaroni and Cheese

One of the best comfort foods for your typical winter day! With this recipe from Eating Well, you can cook up this fan favorite in a new way that uses healthier ingredients – including vegetables.


Unlike your traditional layered lasagna, try this inside-out recipe! And the best part is, you can still get the same great taste considering that the recipe calls for the typical ingredients – ricotta cheese, pasta and tomatoes – just with a bit of a healthy twist!

Sweet Potatoes

Sweet potatoes with beans and tomatoes are a simple, yet healthy meal that can be especially useful when you’re pressed for time. Did you know that beans and tomatoes can give you the protein you may be lacking? The potato skin can also help ensure you get your dose of fiber too!

Tuna Melt

It’s not a tuna melt without the cheese, and even though this is a healthy recipe, you’ll be using less of it without really eliminating too much of your favorite flavor! The difference is, this version calls for less mayo, fresh tomatoes and shredded sharp Cheddar.

Ham and Cheese Casserole

A great option for breakfast, this healthy casserole is made with less egg yolks and nonfat milk – the result is half the calories and 1/3 of the fat of the original recipe! But don’t worry, the ingredients you do use will certainly stand out, adding flavor in ways you won’t believe!

As experts in the restaurant industry, though, we know that sometimes there isn’t always time to make a healthy, home cooked meal – that’s why we can do it for you! With a portion of our menu completely dedicated to healthy choices, you can continue to keep up with your New Year’s Resolutions!
