After a decadent holiday season with a few too many glasses of eggnog, many of us are looking to lighten things up for the New Year. The good news? You don't have to deprive yourself of colorful, delicious and inspired meals nor do you have to make drastic, limiting changes. Instead, choosing recipes that are full of whole foods like fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and legumes and low in sugar and refined flours will help you feel lighter—and dare we say happier—in 2016. While everyone's dietary needs and desires are different and we realize not all of these clean-eating recipes will appeal to everyone, we gathered together a good variety of our favorites in hopes that a few might inspire you to step into the kitchen and away from that fast food burger.
