24 Healthy Recipes to Kick Off the New Year

24 Healthy Recipes To Kick Off The New Year | cookiemonstercooking.com

Happy 2015!! New year, fresh start! I love the feeling of the new year … there’s just something about it.

To be totally honest, I’m not really a big resolution person. I do sit down every January and make goals for the year, but I consider them goals not resolutions … if that makes sense?

Anywho, this is also that time of the year when I’m craving a sort of reset from all the holiday goodies. Cookies most specifically.

So today I have a collection of our favorite healthy recipes from the blog. The ones we make over and over. For those of you looking for a holiday detox or some delicious, nutritious food to start the year off right, this is for you! And I do promise, they all are tasty. Nothing boring, nothing bland.

Enjoy! I’ll be back next week with lots of new recipes! Get pumped, get pumped, get pumped!
