New Year, More Healthy Food!

The year 2018 is rapidly coming to an end and 2019 is just around the corner. You know what that means! New Years Resolutions. 

Every year we struggle with the tired and beaten resolution: I will eat healthy this year. Sometimes we complete our goal (kudos!) sometimes we make it halfway and then eat a bag of chips for dinner (it happens, we know), and sometimes our goal is just dust in the wind. After all, the phrase “delicious healthy food” sounds like an oxymoron…

But what if this year we could help out? What if this time, we had some amazing recipes from previous chefs of the months that are not only healthy, but also delicious?

Find some great options below and make 2019 your year!

1. Chef Mikey’s Watermelon Salad

A note from Chef Mikey: “The Watermelon salad is a light and refreshing salad that plays on the sweetness of the watermelon and the smooth texture of vine ripened Heirloom tomatoes. Some candied pistachios add a slight crunch, and the goat cheese panna cotta contrasts the watermelon just enough without overpowering the salad all together. Finally topped with a balsamic reduction and some finely shaved red onions, this salad is great anytime of the year.”
