Need Some Healthy Meal Ideas/Inspo?

So Yesterday was officially the ‘cut off’ for all the Holiday pigging out and lax fitness/exercise routines!

The dreaded first Monday of the New Year where everyone starts their new diets, joins the gym, starts walking the dog, stops drinking and now only eats strictly organic foods!

Whatever your New Years Resolutions or Goals are I am sure that somewhere on that list you may have ‘try to be healthier’ most people do and weather that is to  join a gym and start a crazy diet or if its simply to go on a walk every evening and only eat two chocolate bars per week (no judgment here all change to better yourself is GOOD change!).

I often find there are a few stumbling blocks we meet along the way, now I’m not talking about the severe camel toe you realized you have been sporting in the privacy of your own home is now going to be going public!

No I am talking about your new healthier diet, your two day’s in and all you know about ‘healthy’ is chicken breasts, brown rice and broccoli, yeah cause that diets going to last a long time! (Note the sarcasm)

So I wanted to share some of my favorite healthy meals with you all!
