Pssst… Hey Guys, do you realize we are two days away from it being 2018!?
How crazy is that? This year has literally just flown by. We’ve had a lot of changes in our house this year, especially in the beginning of the year. All things that in the moment seemed overwhelming but as the year has gone by, those changes I now see were for good! The biggest thing being our new home which we had 30 days to find and move into. It has been such a blessing. It feels like home, like we can settle in and just stay. We’ve hosted more functions in our home in the past 8 months than we have in 5 years and we’re loving every second of it! AND we got pregnant right after moving into that new home… after waiting 4 years for a baby. HUGE!
2017 has been a year of God’s faithfulness and blessing. I can’t wait to see what 2018 brings!
Have you guys set goals yet?
I’m sure if you’re anything like the rest of the country, you have a goal of eating healthy in 2018. Honestly, I have that same goal. But mine is more to have a healthy view of myself and part of the way I do that is taking care of myself – mind, body and soul. I do that through working out and putting things in my body that are going to help it! No calorie counting. But making recipes that are balanced and taste delicious! This will definitely be huge in February when I’m working that baby weight off. 🙂 All that to say, here are 50 of the BEST Healthy Recipes you NEED to make in 2018. I’ve compiled recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert. There are gluten free recipes, paleo, whole30, vegetarian … basically any and everything you can think of! All with one thing in common… absolutely freakin delicious!
