If you feel like I do, you are over-worked and over-stuffed from the holidays. One of my "resolutions" for January (Yes, you read right, just January; I don't want to over promise!) is to eat lighter and healthier. Vince and I aren't going on a "diet" as such, just eating healthier.
Here's to a Healthy January!
So, we are starting with a couple days of juicing. Here is Debbie's Juicing Post in case you decide to do this, too.

Salads are fairly easy to throw together. To make them healthier, consider making your own dressing. Here are some ideas.
Classic Cobb Salad - truly a one dish meal. For a healthier version, cut back on the cheese and bacon.
