It’s the first week of 2015 and I’m starting it off right with some healthy, delicious favorites and then ending the week by heading up towards Mendocino for a 3 day yoga retreat! So to start getting used to normal eating again I’m making a roast chicken to eat throughout the week alongside my lucky New Years Day black bean salad.  Yes, I know that a roast chicken is slathered in butter, but baby steps here!  Plus, I’m a big believer in all things in moderation so a little crispy, delicious chicken skin won’t kill anyone. Then I’m making one of my favorite hearty winter soups…Garlicky Red Lentil.  Super easy to make and soul satisfying. Enjoy your first week of 2015…here’s to a year filled with a good mix of healthy and indulgent deliciousness!
