I admit it: I’m pretty anti-traditional when it comes to resolutions. People generally pick something and then beat themselves up about not doing it, or just have a hard time incorporating it into their lives because it’s something really intense – like going from never exercising to setting a goal to go to the gym 5 days a week! It’s not very sustainable or easy to accomplish.
But I also love that the New Year sparks the imagination for improving your healthy and happiness. And it’s one of my favorite times of year to try out new (somewhat healthy) recipes.
I’m talking about the kind of meals you eat while wearing fuzzy socks. These Winter recipes are the ultimate in soul-warming comfort food. And healthy (ish) too!
So, park yourself in front of the fireplace and chow down on these amazing cozy dishes. After all, the New Year is about improvement, not deprivation.
Whether you’re meal prepping for yourself, your family, or for just better nutrition practices - it always helps for some fresh ideas to get the cooking creativity going! I wanted to share some of my go-to meal prep concepts that get me actually excited to prepare (and eat!). I also highly recommend subscribing to any food newsletters that can send you an endless steam of recipes that will knock your socks off.
Feeling like you need some intense self-care but can't get to a spa? No problem! Luckily, you can whip up a DIY spa experience at home in minutes. Some essentials that you need are: your favorite candles or diffuser, a shower of bath, a scrub or sea salt soak (we have plenty if you need one), oh and time set aside for you! Other things that I also like to include are my favorite relaxation playlist, post-spa moisturization, and maybe a face mask!
