Oh, the New Year. Personally, I just look for a dress that makes me happy- an example would be the dress of 2012 that had so much tulle on the bottom that I was called everything from Cinderella to an 80s diva. It made me feel fancy and that’s how I wanted to enter the New Year. This year, I decided that in addition to finding a fancy dress, I’ll add a new tradition and make a delicious green smoothie to give me a healthy boost before ringing in another year.
Okay, so I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’ve controlled myself enough after Christmas feasting, even though it’s only been a couple days (and by control I mean 3 cookies instead of 10). But now it’s time for a dessert/snack smoothie! Also, if you’re a fan of starting those “New Year diets” then this smoothie is perfect. Indulgence and chocolate before the New Year, but it still has yogurt so you don’t feel oh-so-bad about slurping down more than one.
Feeling a bit better? Good enough to go out for a fun Saturday night? Or maybe the smoothie helped yesterday but a good Saturday night in with a last hoorah of Christmas movies is just what you need. Whatever the case, Day 2 Smoothie is here to help!

You may have said things like, “I’ll never eat again!” but I am here to help you gain your consciousness and lose the guilt with these seven days of smoothies.

Do you give away or keep the things you bake during the holidays? That is the question. I’d propose the way to best prepare for holiday outings is to make something that you can either give guests, or give to the host of a party you attend. This fruity and savory bread can be served as dessert with ice cream, or as a breakfast treat with some One Step Pumpkin Butter, which is as easy as it sounds. So grab your favorite loaf pan, some cranberries and make your future-self happy that you thought ahead with this simple gift.

There are only two roles to be played during the holidays: you are either a host or a guest. Either way you have to be prepared with a dynamite dinner or side dish for the get together – something that everyone will remember and even email you for the recipe days later. Be a super holiday hero, make this side dish. This sweet potato casserole is the perfect combination of sweet potatoes, yogurt and cheese to melt your way into everyone’s heart.
Ginger can be used in many things for many reasons: As a spice in a dish for some kick, as a delicious addition to a dessert or even when you aren’t feeling your best, a little ginger chew or ginger tea might calm an upset stomach.
