Lighter Recipe Roundup

Eating lighter options doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice on flavor. Check out this huge list of breakfasts, main dishes, sides, and even desserts to keep your New Year’s resolutions in check.

Lighter Recipe Roundup

It’s that time of year again. When the gyms are packed and you struggle to find lighter meals and snacks that don’t bore you. While this blog isn’t specifically geared towards healthy recipes, I do post a decent amount of lighter, healthier, or whatever you want to call them recipes. Some recipes I feel comfortable stamping with the label of “healthy” while others take a lighter twist on a normally not-so-healthy splurge. Good for the body and soul!

Pomegranate Mimosa

Get the champagne ready! Whether you are hosting brunch or toasting the new year, change things up with this pomegranate mimosa.

Pomegranate Mimosa 1

I’m not usually a big fan of champagne, unless orange juice is involved. Ah yes mimosas, the drink of brunches. In fact when my lab mates and I were in Berlin we managed to order a couple mimosas for “brunch” despite our waitress looking at us like we lost our minds when we described it as a drink that was half champagne and half orange juice. Silly Americans.

This time of year champagne comes out in full force, namely in a couple days for the celebration of another New Year. But who says you have to toast with pure champagne? I say mix some fruit juice in there, have some fun, and dare someone to stop you. I mixed in some pomegranate to make it seasonally appropriate.
