The 28 Day New Year Intermittent Fasting Challenge is JUST around the corner!! AENpeeps around the world (myself included!) are kicking off the New Year by tapping into fat burning mechanisms, eating meals we LOVE and feeling GOOD again!


The Challenge starts on Monday, January 4th and is 4 weeks long. If you haven't joined in already, you can grab the deets for the Challenge HERE and with the video below.


Today, I'm sharing 3 recipes that are featured from the Meal Plans used in the New Year Intermittent Fasting Challenge. Each of these recipes have been designed to boost satiety and/or reduce prep and make your life easier. You have probably heard me mention before that I consider myself a "lazy" cook. I LOVE to cook and I LOVE eating amazing meals, but I also am extremely busy - as are MANY of the AENpeeps! Each of these recipes takes those factors into consideration so that you can eat meals you love AND feel good while Intermittent Fasting!

Check out the recipes below!
