I generally have pretty good willpower, but I must admit to tasting a lot of cookie dough along with sampling all the sweets and treats delivered to our house for the holidays. January is the perfect time to reflect on the year gone by and focus on a new healthier you.

This means eating a more balanced diet, eliminating sweets and upping the fruits and vegetables. My blogger friends and I have shared 25+ Healthy Recipes: our favorite clean eating recipes, from soups to salads to entrees, which you’ll want to add to your menu in 2016!
