New Year, New Eats: Change Up Your 2017 Menu

Goodbye 2016, Hello 2017! It’s a new year, and with that comes the yearly tradition to start fresh after indulging in delicious, yet not so healthy fare, especially after the holidays. We often hear people setting goals for themselves, spending time considering what version of themselves they’d like to cultivate over the upcoming months. Whether you’re looking to bid adieu all junk food and replace with healthier, balanced options, such as swapping out French fries for vegetables alongside your main dish, or to simplify your time spent in the kitchen, these recipes will help you welcome in the New Year. 

Seize the Morning

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, meaning the choices made in the morning can set the tone of your day. There are several healthier breakfast menu options out there, but some can be known to be a bit bland and boring. If you’re in need of an alternative to the typical oatmeal or bowl of cereal, this Chai Spiced Yogurt Parfait with Apricots blends several delightful flavors and good-for-you ingredients all in one bite. Not to mention, no one will leave the house feeling unsatisfied! 

Trick Your Taste Buds

One of the most common New Year’s resolutions we hear is to lose weight – but many fall off track because several diets out there can leave you famished and turning to food we originally told ourselves we’d give up.

These Grilled Turkey Reuben Wraps made with Libby’s® Bavarian Style Sauerkraut are a modern and wholesome twist on a classic, and proves that you can have your favorites and eat it too. 

Time Is of the Essence
