What. A. Year.
It was the year of Remy. The year our lives got turned upside down and inside out and will never be the same again. And that’s totally fine by me.
The year our country got turned upside down and inside out and can hopefully only rise up from here.
If you’re like me, then you’ve been spending your last week of 2016 frantically eating all of the pie/cake/pastry/cookies in your fridge to prepare yourself for a clean start in 2017. This week’s meal plan is all about eating healthy but deliciously to make sure we all start off this year on the right foot. With the promise of vegetarian chili, enchiladas, Indian fare, a winter veggie grain bowl, and the ULTIMATE vegetarian sandwich, I really feel like we have the tools to do just that.
Here’s to an even better year in 2017 than we had in 2016. I think we can.
