    OK, so we are 12 days into the new year. Twelve. How’s that healthy eating promise you made to yourself going? Be honest…no judgement here.

    Chances are it’s been a bit of a roller coaster, with the ups involving a feeling of energy and vitality and the downs involving a container of your aunt Judy’s leftover chocolate fudge. Damn you, Aunt Judy.

    Truth is, success in creating a permanent and sustainable shift in healthier eating and living is pretty challenging for most of us, and it’s not just because pizza is delicious and fresh-baked cookies are more comforting than, well, just about anything. Eating healthier takes planning ahead. It takes figuring out what your landmines are, and finding ways for combating them. It takes resilience in discovering and nurturing the ability to make your next meal or snack a healthy one after you’ve had a setback. It’s about finding the time to get some exercise, even the smallest amount. And, right about now–12 days into your commitment to being healthier in the new year–you are probably wondering what the hell you need to do to make some progress. Even a little…

    First, take a deep breath. Seriously, stop being so unreasonable with yourself. I mean this is a long road, and you’ve just wandered around the first block. Keep at it. It really does get easier and, yes, what they say about getting to the point where you actually prefer the healthier food and habits you’ve developed over time is true. I promise….

    So, whether you’re looking to regain some of the inspiration you had 10 days ago, or you want to build on the momentum you’ve achieved, one of the best things you can do is get in the kitchen. And to get you off on the right foot, here are 5 weeknight meals that are quick, healthy, satisfying.
