31 Seasonal Recipes to Cook in January

Happy new year! What a year it has been. I’m feeling super grateful and incredibly excited about what 2023 will bring.

In case you missed the announcement on social…I’m officially writing a cookbook! I can’t wait to share some of the behind-the-scenes, answer your questions, and of course, for the book to officially be in print at the end of 2024 (yes, it’s a HUGE, long process!)

In the meantime, what better way to kick off the new year than with 31 healthy winter recipes? This month I included plenty of vegetarian & plant-based options to really pack in those veggies, plus a focus on protein & nutrients to fuel your health journey wherever it’s taking you.

If you’ve been wondering what to cook in January, get ready for tons of meal prep ideas to make cooking a breeze plus plenty of healthy snacks & treats to enjoy all month long.
