Recipes to Help You Keep Your New Year’s Resolution in Tact

 

The new year is fast approaching and with it will come the notion of change. People focus on changing their habits and changing the amount of time they spend with their families, but the most common resolution has to do with getting healthier. Research shows that just dieting does not work. Restricting yourself from foods that you love may not be the best path. We are human and we love to eat, but changing our mindsets as to what we eat is the only path to keeping our new year’s resolution from becoming forgotten. Here are some healthy recipes that will keep you on track and going full force to a healthier you.

 

 

Apple Muffins

It is always best to start the day with a healthy and hearty breakfast to keep you full through most of the day, but too many times breakfast is either completely forgotten or left up to milk and a bowl of sugar laced cereal. These simple muffins will give you the quick breakfast you need to be out the door without filling your body with unwanted sugar.

Ingredients

1                                  Granny Smith Apple (chopped)

½ cup                           Sugar Substitute or Raw Sugar

¼ cup                           Unsweetened Natural Applesauce

1                                  Egg White

½ teaspoon                  Vanilla

¾ cup                           Flour

1 teaspoon                  Cinnamon

1 teaspoon                  Baking Soda

1 dash                          Salt

Directions

  1. Mix apple and sugar substitute together and set aside for 1 minutes. This gives time for the natural moisture of the apple to be extracted.
  2. Add applesauce, egg white, and vanilla.
  3. Combine all dry ingredients in a separate bowl and add the apple mixture to it.
  4. Place in prepared muffin tins and bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.
  5. Mash beans together until pasty.
  6. Combine beans with bell peppers, onion, and garlic.
  7. In a small bowl mix egg, chili powder, cumin, and hot sauce.
  8. Mix both mixtures together and add bread crumbs until the mixture holds together.
  9. This mixture should make four good sized patties that can be grilled or baked in a 350-degree oven.
  10. Season the fish with taco seasoning and bake for 10 minutes in 350-degree oven.
  11. While the fish is cooking, combine cabbage, juice from the lime, and cilantro and set aside.
  12. When the fish is cooked assemble the tacos using the flour tortilla, fish, cabbage mixture, tomato, yogurt, and feta choose.

Black Bean Veggie Burgers

If you are trying to avoid red meat, it can be quite a difficult task when the craving for a burger rears its ugly head. The thought of going out and ruining your diet on some fast food fat filled treat may be tempting, but there are other solutions. The meat in the burger is not always what we crave, but rather the grilled flavor and the toppings that we enjoy. Here is a solution that can keep you on track and feel free to adjust the seasonings to your personal taste.

Ingredients

1 can                                 Black Beans

½                                       Green Bell Pepper (chopped)

½                                       Onion (chopped)

3 cloves                             Garlic (minced)

1                                        Egg

1 tablespoon                     Chili Powder

1 tablespoon                     Cumin

1 teaspoon            Hot Sauce

½ cup                                 Bread Crumbs

Directions

Fish Tacos

Again, you may be struggling with the fact that any fish you consume outside the home is usually deep fried and therefore a big no no for anyone trying to stay on track with their eating habits. Tacos have become a big draw for many people looking to avoid red meat, but still, most establishments fry the fish. Here is a recipe that is sure to please without the guilt from fried foods.

Ingredients

1 pound                                   Mahi Mahi Fillets
