Feastie Friday: Healthy Post-Holiday Recipes - Top 5

For food lovers, the holiday season can be both a blessing and a curse. Spending time with loved ones and enjoying festive meals is one of the great joys in life. It's the time of year where you bake your grandma's famous apple pie, or induldge in Christmas candy and eggnog - and all those Christmas cookies! The endless cookies! Unfortunately all of the rich, heavy, decadent food can take a toll on your body after a while - at some point your body is screaming out for a pile of vegetables (hold the butter). So go ahead and pile on the veggies - now is the perfect time to get back on track with healthy meals and nutritious food. Start the new year with a healthy outlook, and try some new recipes to add to your weekly rotation for 2013. We've rounded up the top 5 healthy post-holiday recipes to get you back on track and excited about healthful eating. And don't think healthy means plates of bland salad greens without dressing - think high fiber vegetarian burgers, stir frys, even crispy kale chips!
