To make your New Year’s resolutions stick, you need recipes for success. Here we’ve rounded up some of our favorites to start the year right. Yes, they’re on the better-for-you side, but with plenty of great flavor to feed your commitment.
You know what makes anything taste better? Put it on a stick. Yes, even kale, carrots and cauliflower become downright fun on a kabob. Roasting them brings out natural sweetness, plus the ranch seasoning, the balsamic, the honey … wow, kale is sounding pretty good.
What’s the opposite of boring? This New Year’s resolution-friendly salad, that’s what. Yes, it’s full of salad-y lettuce, but it’s also full of flavor with mandarin oranges, almonds, soy sauce and a super delicious secret ingredient (okay, it’s ranch).
Love sweet potato fries? Meet your new pal carrot fries. They’re so crispy, sweet and savory that they’re downright addictive, which is great, because they’re carrots. You have SO got this resolution thing.
You can’t be expected to give up comfort food all at once. Instead, ease into January with this genius replacement for mashed potatoes. We won’t tell it’s cauliflower if you won’t.
You can still have Taco Tuesdays, just in salad form. This recipe takes traditional taco makings and layers them with crumbly cornbread and Spicy Ranch dressing. And the gorgeous presentation puts that old taco buffet to shame.
This dip gets its flavor kick from our Greek Yogurt Cucumber Dill Dressing. It’s a great alternative to using sour cream or mayo, with 60 calories per serving. Does that mean you can eat even more of this yummy dip? We’ll leave that up to you.
