Healthy.

Many of us find the fresh beginning of each new year to be a perfect opportunity to make more nutritious, healthy choices. It can be challenging to know where to begin, but this issue of Gatherings Magazine takes a look at a few common weak spots, and offers easy solutions that enable you to make healthier choices. Our Healthy Alternatives section provides recipes for common dishes, prepared in a more health-conscious way. Take a look at the tasty Desserts section to find recipes that will satisfy your sweet tooth, but won't leave you with the normal post-dessert guilt. Plus, we've included a handy Perfect Salad guide, which can help you create a tasty, wholesome meal that enriches your diet with veggies, fruits, and protein.

Your 2017 guideline for finding joy in eating and becoming a Healthier You: 1. Stick to a schedule: Develop a meal and snack routine that works for you! This ensures that you go to meals hungry not starved. 2. Find joy in healthy eating: Include food you truly enjoy and incorporate fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat dairy and lean proteins because you enjoy them not because you have to eat them. 3. Take time and pay attention to your food: Taste it and enjoy it!

4. Balance: Incorporate both nutrient dense foods as well as “forbidden foods” in your meals and snacks. 5. Get healthy together: Getting healthier with friends, family members or even with

Here are some tips and suggestions to get your day started off with a nutrient pack breakfast. • Breakfast is a great way to get fiber rich foods: whole grain toast, fresh fruit or Clearly Organic oatmeal and Clearly Organic Steel Cut Oats are great options. • Eating fruits and vegetables at each meal will help you get your 5+ servings per day, so make sure to grab a banana, apple or some Clearly Organic 100% fruit or vegetable juice (keep juice to a 4 oz serving). • Most people say they are too busy to eat in the morning. Breakfast is the easiest meal to grab on the go. Whole grain cereal and Clearly Organic skim milk or soy milk, low fat Greek yogurt and fresh berries, low sugar granola bar, whole grain breakfast bar and fresh fruit can be eaten quickly or at your desk! • Get those veggies! Use Clearly Organic eggs to make an omelet or egg sandwich and add spinach, tomatoes, mushrooms or peppers. • Shake it up! Breakfast smoothies are easy to make and can contain fresh, Clearly Organic frozen or can fruits. Add protein with a scoop of protein powder, Greek yogurt or Clearly Organic peanut butter or Clearly Organic Almond Butter. Add extra nutrients with Clearly Organic Chia Seeds or Flaxseeds.

YIELD: 4 servings PREP TIME: 20 mins COOK TIME: 3 hrs 20 mins

YIELD: 8-10 servings PREP TIME: 10 mins COOK TIME: 20 mins

ingredients:

2 tbsp olive oil 1 medium spaghetti squash 1 ½ cups crushed tomatoes ½ tsp salt ½ tsp garlic powder ¼ tsp pepper ¼ tsp dried oregano 16 turkey meatballs 2 tbsp butter or olive oil Additional salt and pepper to taste

directions:

1. Preheat oven to 375° F. Wash the outside of the squash. Cut the squash in half lengthwise and use a spoon to scoop out and discard seeds from the middle of each half. Brush the inside of each half with olive oil, and place cut-side down on a baking sheet. 2. Roast in preheated oven until tender, 35-50 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool before handling. Scrape cut side of squash with a fork to remove strands. 3. In a processor or blender, combine tomatoes, salt, garlic powder, pepper, and oregano. Puree until smooth. 4. Pour sauce mixture into a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer. Continue to simmer for ten minutes. 5. Cook turkey meatballs according to package instructions. 6.

1 ½ lbs sweet potatoes 3 cup olive oil Kosher Salt

directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 400º F. Line several baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. Use a mandolin slicer to cut the sweet potatoes into paper-thin rounds. You can use a knife to do this, but it takes much longer. 2. Pile all the sweet potato rounds into a large bowl and pour the olive oil over the top. Gently toss to coat every piece with oil. Then lay the sweet potato rounds out on the baking sheets in a single layer. 3. Sprinkle the chips lightly with Kosher Salt. Bake for 20-25 minutes until crisp and golden around the edges. Remove from the oven and cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheets. Then move the chips to a bowl, or plastic bag to store. If you happen to find a few chips with soft centers, pop them back in the oven for about 5 minutes. baked sweet potato chips vs. potato chips • Baked sweet potato chips are low in saturated fat, and very low in cholesterol and sodium. • Baked sweet potato chips are a very good source of vitamin A.

1. Be Creative - Rethink your definition of “salad.” Salad doesn’t have to mean a green leafy base. Think fruits, veggies, and other alternatives. 2. Contrast Textures - Crunchy and soft. Salty and sweet. Spicy and mild. Salt and pepper. Get the idea? Think combinations of opposites. 3. Combine Protein and Fiber - Carrots and zucchini contain soluble fiber helping you feel full. Add a protein like chicken or steak for maintaining muscle. 4. Combine Raw and Cooked Foods - Include steamed, saúted or even grilled items to add variety. 5. Customize the Dressing - Make a combination of your own favorites: keep it simple with a 1 part vinegar 3 parts oil ratio.

Remember - though many salads incorporate some kind of dressing, this is often what makes the salad lean toward the unhealthy end of the spectrum. Use interesting flavors in your salad so you don’t need to top it with dressing, or try a vinegar and oil mixture for a healthier alternative.

Start with a Base, or choose to combine two or three Bases. Add a Crunchy element, a Soft element, and an Unexpected element. For more ideas, see our 5 Tips for Perfecting Salad below!

Step away from the boring iceberg salad! Adding variety to your healthy eating plan can make it much easier to stick to! Use this guide to create your own combinations of delicious, interesting flavors.
