eggs and avocado on toastThe next week will be full of excitement and celebration, but along with that comes plenty of food and drinks. Sure, we could wait for January 2nd to get back on track with our health and fitness, but wouldn’t it make more sense to make some healthy selections now so you are ahead of the game? I’m not suggesting you refrain from everything, but these ideas could help you get some quality, well rounded meals into your body before you splurge on all that other goodness.

“Fattening” Breakfast

Will you be traveling for the day? Or out doing some last minute shopping? Unless you pack snacks and meals, you might be tempted to stop at the convenience store or food court and grab something quick. Fill your belly with some healthy fats first thing in the morning with this delicious egg and avocado toast to help curb cravings.

Lunch that "eat’s like a dinner"

Often the forgotten meal between snacks - lunch. Grab your fork and dig into this healthy buffalo chicken bowl. You’ll fuel your body with protein, veggies and healthy fats all in one guilt-free bowl. They can even be made a head of time and easily taken on the road with you during this busy holiday season.

Dinner that’ll Fill your Family’s Belliesbowl of quinoa

Late night out with the girls from work or a New Year’s Party with the family? Either way, everyone needs to eat. Save time with this family-friendly slow cooker Mexican quinoa! Prep it in minutes, let it cook for a few hours, and serve. It’s healthy (with vegetables hidden in it so the kids will never know) AND it’s filling enough to prevent all the snacking on chips or stopping by the drive-thru for those late-night munchies.

Eating healthier will help you feel better, and when you feel better, you look better. Looking for other healthy recipe ideas? Check out our Pinterest page.
