Happy new year! I hope you had a great
celebration. This year, I stayed in with my
fiancé, and we had
the most relaxing time watching the ball drop from the comfort of our own living room. We embraced our personal and professional highlights of 2018 (mine were getting engaged to my love, traveling to Europe more than once, honoring my creative self
by taking a 10-week photography class, and hitting 10K followers on
Instagram) and got
ready to give a healthy 2019 a big hello!
With the start of 2019, you might be wondering what healthy food trends you should try this year. If there's one thing dietitians know, it's healthy food.

Amy's Recipe of the Week: High-Protein Smoothie with Vanilla Bean
This power smoothie recipe was one of my most popular recipes in 2018! Smoothies aren't just sugar and carbs.

My other most popular recipes of the year? Wild blueberry ricotta pancakes, almond pistachio cocoa bites, and avocado deviled eggs. Which will you be trying next?
