So, we’ve compiled some of our favorite post-workout healthy recipes for you to make and enjoy while you go on this healthy lifestyle journey. You might be thinking “oh no, healthy cooking is too hard. I don’t want to do that; maybe I should just give up and try again in 2018.” All of these recipes are packed with protein and super easy to make. They’re simple and not intimidating, even for the most beginner of beginners in the kitchen. We’re here to help you find the foods that will help you help yourself find the healthy balance you need.

My New Year’s resolutions are to save enough money in order to feel comfortable and responsible enough to adopt a dog and to work out at least 3 times a week. Eating healthy is something that I continually struggle with, so I’m going to take it slow. I’ve made a promise to myself to cook something healthy at least once a week. And then in February, I’ll bump that up to twice a week. Maybe there will be a week in 2017 where I cook something healthy every night of the week (or at least eat some healthy leftovers).
