7 Drool Worthy Recipes to Break Your New Year's Resolutions With


It's not even half way into January but if you are anything like me, you are starting to go into holiday food withdrawal.  That means cravings for burgers, fried chicken, steak, you name it.  If it's fried, I want it.  

Don't get me wrong, eating healthy feels great and I'm not encouraging a poor diet.  But if you're going to break your resolutions, you might as well go big. These 10 recipes are guaranteed to hit the spot and leave you feeling satisfied.

At the end of the day, it's all about balance and moderation.  There's nothing wrong with indulging in a fatty rib eye once in a while and at least for me, trying to cut out certain foods usually leads to more intense cravings.  So with that being said, treat yourself to what you love but just don't go crazy with it.  When making resolutions it's important to be realistic in order to be able to maintain them.  

If you are seriously trying to avoid junk food this year, proceed with caution.
