I’m going to let you in on a little secret: You can’t out-train a bad diet. You can spin your heart out, box until your arms burn, yoga till the cows come home, but if you pig out on processed, packaged junk, you’ll never get the body of your dreams. It’s simple: Eat well and you’ll feel well – and look your best! To celebrate healthy eating, here are my top 8 favorite recipes from the past year. Healthy eating has NEVER tasted so good. Dig in!!!!
Green Apple and Macadamia Quinoa – Quinoa is now a pantry staple in my house, in part thanks to this delish recipe from Fresh Happy Tasty.
Paleo Flourless Nut-Free Brownies – I love that these delectable brownies contain only 5 ingredients (nice!), I love that they work for the Paleo and gluten-free crowd and I love that they came from one of my fave cookbook authors!
Healthy Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cookie Skillet Recipe– Chelle’s ridiculously delish cookie skillet may be the most popular recipe on the blog yet! Warning: May be addictive!

Roasted Roots with Gribiche Sauce – This recipe from The French Market Cookbook is a healthier and tastier take on French fries – and will give you a whole new appreciation for parsnips, rutabaga and beets!
The Best Banana Bread, Ever! – Made with spelt and almond flour, this moist and delicious banana bread will forever make you rethink traditional flour!
