With just a few more hours until 2013, we wanted to get an early start on some healthy recipes for the New Year. We love using as many local foods as possible in our cooking, but winter limits what we can find. Our New Beginnings Fiesta Salad uses Rotel - a great spicy tomato and chili mix that is low on calories but adds lots of flavor. When we make this in the summer we'll use fresh tomatoes, peas, and chilis but this is the perfect way to pay homage to the southern tradition of having black eye peas on New Years for luck. You can find the recipe on our Lifestylist® recipe page. Happy New Year!
