Each New Year is a blank canvas…paint it how you see fit! Continue to think local and green in 2015 – and feel motivated to take the reigns on fresh cuisine!

Take Chef Hugo Ortega’s ultra-fresh Red Snapper Ceviche above. We feel the love with finely chopped Roma tomatoes, diced avocado, jalapeños and lots of lime tossed with fresh red snapper. It’s inspired by the fresh-catch found on the ports in Veracruz. A self-proclaimed favorite of Hugo’s!
Skinny is more than just a state of mind with this incredibly fresh Grapefruit Smoothie from nutritionist Diana Stobo. Grapefruit is great for moving stored fat and reducing cellulite. This super simple smoothie is made with 3 stalks of celery, green apple, a banana and the juice from one grapefruit. Bottoms up!
Lidia Bastianich is an Italian guru, but I treasure her salads just as much! Lidia’s Roasted Beet and Beet Green Salad with tart Granny Smith apples and slightly aged goat cheese comes from her NYC eatery, Felidia. We’re dubbing it the salad of right now. Plus, your diet won’t be sabotaged by hidden calories in the dressing.
This homemade Fat Flushing Soup has been a BIG hit viewers in the past. Pick your protein with lean ground beef, turkey or chopped chicken, pile on the veggies and garnish with shaved Parmesan cheese. This soup can be stored up to 5 days in the refrigerator or frozen!
