Tired of your regular breakfast foods? Want to keep up with your “healthy” New Year’s resolution. I have to admit I don’t write New Year’s resolutions anymore. Only because I will only follow it for a few weeks and then I tend to “forget” about them. Instead of resolutions, I set goals. My goal is to always eat healthy foods but sometimes healthy foods can get boring. Here are some healthy recipes from Hungry girl, Lisa Lillien.
