If you made a New Year’s resolution to eat more mindfully, at this point, you’re in one of two places: You’ve either been killing the meal prep game and fueling your body with nutrient-dense foods or you’re like me and have fallen victim to the convenience of eating out and choosing a slice of Portillo’s chocolate cake for dinner. Oh, no one else is choosing cake for dinner? Carry on.

Regardless of whether you’ve started your 2022 resolutions off strong or gave yourself an extra week to mentally prepare for the commitment, we applaud you. Being aware of what you’re nourishing your body with is the first step, and we’ll call contemplating whipping up one of these recipes the second!
