Eight recipes to start 2013 the healthy way!

healthy recipes

The Holidays are over and so are the big caloric family dinners. As always, most of us have put on a few pounds during the past 2 weeks. And, as usual, one of our first objectives of the New Year is to lose that weight as fast as possible. Aside from exercise, the best way to achieve this objective is obviously to eat healthy. However, unlike what some people might think healthy food does not necessarily mean boring food.

And to prove my point, I grouped together 8 of my favorite healthy recipes. Four of them are salads, the other four soups. Moreover, they are all really easy to make so you have no reason not to start 2013 the healthy way!

Salads :
