January: Healthy Comfort Food

January Calendar

Welcome to January.  This year, it feels like we careened around the corner after the holidays, screeching our wheels as we sped into the new year. Perhaps it is because both Christmas and New Year’s came so early in the week, giving us what felt like four weekends in quick succession.

Whatever happened, 2014 is here. And with it comes a few new projects.  For one, my new podcast, Best Life Ever, launched yesterday.  In the first episode, Heather and I discuss resolutions, goal settings, and the little things we’re appreciating this week. You can download the first episode here!

I’m also starting up a new blog venture in the next week.  On Savvy Game Night, I’ll be reviewing one board game a week.  Stay tuned for more information coming soon!  Also keep an eye out for a design change-up around here next week.

To stay sane and healthy during all these changes, and to recover from the cookie-alcohol-appetizer-filled holidays, I’m focusing on health-ified comfort foods.  Chowders that are creamy without the actual cream are keeping us warm and cozy, while chicken tacos that get amped up with cilantro and lime rather than a ton of cheese.  

I can’t wait to share all these recipes and new projects with you.  Here’s to a happy and healthy new year!

xoxo, Julie
