by | Dec 27, 2012 | Breakfast | 0 comments

It’s that time of year during the holidays where we’ve probably indulged in a few lot of extra treats, and our bodies are starting to betray us.  I know mine has.  I’m suffering from a runny nose as I type and am craving comfort food that will help combat my cold, clogging arteries, and growing waistline.  Try these recipes now and think of it as a way to prime yourself for upcoming new years indulgences and/or a head start on your resolutions. 

Miso Soup:  Turn a restaurant starter into a full meal that’s low in calories and high in comfort. Vegetarian/vegan.
