Whether you set New Year's resolutions or not, many look to the beginning of each year as an opportunity to eat better. Whatever your goal(s) for 2020 may be, we think you'll agree these recipes are top-notch ways to eat healthier in the New Year without sacrificing taste.

We asked UnityPoint Health – Meriter clinical dietitian Dena Person and manager of our Greenbush Garden Bistro and Dr. Joe's coffee shop Michelle Miller, to share a couple of healthy recipe ideas to help get your New Year off to a great start.

Dena's recipe is for quiche cups, which can be made vegetarian or vegan, depending on your needs. Click below to watch Dena and Michelle demonstrate how to make this recipe, which you can download for free here.

Michelle provided a wonderful recipe as well! In the video below, she walks us through how to assemble a delicious mixed-green salad and accompanying dressing which will give you both the tang and sweetness that makes a salad dressing really shine! Enjoy her video below, and download her recipe here.

If you're interested in additional ways you can move forward in 2020 with healthier habits, check out our Get Fit! Exercise and Healthy Eating Program which is focused on getting you started down a path to achieving and maintaining a healthy weight along with a heart-healthy lifestyle. We understand that what works best for one may not be right for another. You will meet individually with a dietitian and a fitness trainer to develop a personal plan. The group setting will give you a fun and comfortable atmosphere to exercise.
