30 Healthy Recipes for a Good Reset

30 Healthy Recipes to give your body a good RESET! See more on Shutterbean.com

It’s January!!!!! Everyone seems to be cutting things out of their diet and rebooting. The holidays will do that to you!

I’ve been spending the past two weeks of the new year organizing/decluttering our house and I haven’t been on track with eating right. Now that the clutter is (mostly) out, I can focus my brain on making good/healthy eating choices.

I put together a list of the 30 Healthy Recipes I like to put back into my meal prep when I am ready to eat/feel lighter.

Hope this inspires you to do the same!

We had wings.

I tried to make them in my new Instant Pot this time.

I normally make them like this.

The instant pot cooked them fast but they made them so incredibly tender the meat mostly fell off the bone. I gotta futz with the settings and figure it out. Maybe they’ll just be something I make in the oven (or fry!)

This is why I had one of the walls in our bedroom painted black.

The afternoon light is magical.

Hippy Banana Bread

Hippy Banana Bread Shutterbean

I made our favorite banana bread during the holiday break and it didn’t last a full 24 hours in our house. We plowed through it in no time and I think it’s kinda light and fluffy so it’s very easy to go through. There’s nothing to slow you down. There’s no lingering. It’s just an EAT BANANA BREAD NOW and then cut another sliver until you realize there’s none left kind of situation.

Hippy Banana Bread Shutterbean

So I put my thinking cap on and made what I like to call Hippy Banana Bread. I need a banana bread with bite!  I need something hearty, something a little dense. Something with texture and bite!

Hippy Banana Bread Shutterbean

This banana bread lasted more than 24 hours in our house.  It’s been my breakfast for the past week and I looooooooove it.  What makes it “hippy?”  All the seeds (sunflower seeds & pumpkin seeds!), walnuts and dried cherries (that plump up after baking!).

You might find yourself buying extra bananas each week for this recipe. I’m already gathering ingredients for my next loaf…

Lemon Ginger Elixir

Soothe your throat & relax with this Lemon Ginger Elixir. Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com!

I developed a habit of stopping at my local hippy grocery store for a Lemon Ginger Elixir. It was always in times of OMG I NEED TO CHILL THE F- OUT.

For some reason, this drink has been the answer.

Soothe your throat & relax with this Lemon Ginger Elixir. Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com!

Honey, lemon and ginger in all of the right combinations.

More ginger than you’re probably used to.

Soothe your throat & relax with this Lemon Ginger Elixir. Find the recipe on Shutterbean.com!

Your mouth and throat get treated to a spa day.

It feels like a nice warm hug. I think of it as a nice way to ward off colds and soothe an upset stomach. This is why I stock up on ginger during this time of year.

I would say I have shed about 15 bags of stuff.  Two trips to Salvation Army and I’m working on another one soon. I ordered a bag from ThredUp so I could sell some of my stuff. Has anyone used them before? I figured it was worth a shot.

I also got rid of my maternity clothes.
