15 Easy & Healthy Recipes for the New Year

Quinoa stuffed peppersPersonally, I believe almost everything is good in moderation. So, I try to eat mostly healthy all year long with room for occasional treats and splurges. But I love using the new year as a time to reset and refocus my mostly-healthy eating habits. It feels like a lot of people use January as a time to kick start in this way too. So if you're looking for some more healthy options to spice up your weekly meals, here are 15 ideas to try. First up are these quinoa stuffed bell peppers. Yum!
