There’s no better time than the start of a new year to get back to basics — especially after a few weeks of holiday indulgence. Think: super simple, easy-to-make meals jam-packed with nutrients. It doesn’t get much easier than blending up a green smoothie at breakfast, tossing together pasta for lunch and throwing a sheet pan meal in the oven for dinner.

Chock full of nutrient-rich leafy greens, healthy fats and filling fiber, this 1,800-calorie day is the perfect January jumpstart into healthy eating.
