My 20 Favorite Home Chef Recipes For The New Year

Happy New Year, my friends! I hope you had a healthy, happy and restful holiday season. I certainly did, especially the restful part. I read books, started my annual Oscar movie watch-a-thon, cooked recipes I’d been meaning to try forever, napped, and cuddled #oneflops. I’m back in the test kitchen and photography studio this week, working on a few new healthy recipes (that I’ll be sharing next week, so be sure to check back), as well as a whole slew of fun party food (psst – #FLLEpicGameDay starts January 15th!).

Until then, I wanted to collect a bunch of my favorite vibrant, fresh and healthful recipes, and corral them all here for you for easy meal planning. Whether you’re looking for whole grain breakfasts, veggie-forward lunches, colorful smoothies or lean but satisfying dinners, I hope that you’ll find something you love on this list!
