New Year’s resolutions can be anything from drinking less coffee to beating a certain level in a video game, but we all know the most common one: living a healthier lifestyle. Working on our fitness, hitting our weight goals, getting leaner, stronger, faster — and, most importantly, feeling better!

Though this resolution is extremely popular, it’s easily one of the hardest ones out there. It seems doable at the beginning of January, but sometimes even toward the end of that first month, you already find yourself struggling. One of the biggest challenges is maintaining a wholesome diet. From big meals, to desserts, to the snacks in between, it’s hard to keep those calories low and that stomach full. That’s why we’re going to set you up with some dish ideas — and the tools to help — to help that resolution last throughout 2021!
