Aren’t we lucky to have two new years and subsequently two calendar designated times to starting fresh? I’ve been reading a book (fine you caught me, a diet book) about the French approach to diet.  To sum it up, the word diet should be banished.  Eating healthy depends on the individual, we all need different things and occasionally we all need a treat.  Below are 5 healthy, easy weeknight meals and 5 treats for, well, no explanation necessary.

goat cheese cheesecake 647

Quick and easy, this Asian Vegetable Stuffed Flounderis packed with flavor and vegetables to make healthy eating even easier.  Treat: Goat Cheese Cheesecake

Baked Portobello Shakshuka

Baked Portobello Shakshuka is a brilliant take on traditional shakshuka.  Both are healthy in my book, but by baking it in the portobello you get an extra serving of veg and  need less oil.  Treat: Double Espresso Fudgy Brownies

Homemade Kit Kat

Spinach Vegetarian Taco Salad is great for dinner and lunch the next day.  Loaded with beans and greens this salad is very filling and packed with healthy fats such as avocado and evoo.  Treat: Homemade Kit Kat

winter soup

The Winter Vegetable Soup has just about every vegetable in it!  There are a lot of vitamins floating around this soup and the multitude of root vegetables makes it creamy enough to be a full meal, made even better with a slice of good, crusty bread.  Treat: Peanut Butter Brownies
