And so it begins. You went out last night and had your fun and now it’s time to “get back on track” and eat healthy. Although you may be dreading it, I’m going to give you the tools to make healthy eating a way of life, rather than the most hated 4 letter word– a “diet”.


25 healthy and easy breakfast and snack recipes

For the first week of The 30-Day Healthy Living Challenge, I’m challenging you to spend some time in your kitchen and try your hand at cooking. (Read: 5 Reasons You Should Cook)

The first challenge is to make one breakfast and one snack from the recipes below. Consuming a hearty, protein filled breakfast and snacking throughout the day will prevent you from feeling ravenous during the day and overeating junk food.

For your first challenge, I asked my Registered Dietitians friends for their easiest breakfast and snack recipes. The result is a wonderful compilation of 25 healthy and simple recipes that you can make any time of the year.

    LOVE your spicy cocoa popcorn Natalie! Christmas was rough. Being away from home for the whole week is really taking its toll on me. I am very much looking froward to getting back to clean eating. I also did the Easy Egg Muffin’s, which I already often do.
