Now that we’ve all treated ourselves to a well-deserved holiday of delicious food and drink, it’s time to focus again on a more healthy routine. Here are a few of my daily rituals:
- I find exotic, flavorful teas to be very cleansing and restorative. Even a simple glass of hot water with a squeeze of lemon is a refreshing, hydrating tonic.
- Every morning I drink about 8 ounces of green juice made from combining fresh produce like spinach, cucumber, parsley, ginger, and orange peel.
- One of my favorite heart-healthy weekday lunches is a large salad—fresh greens and herbs dressed with a vinaigrette, along with a simply cooked piece of salmon drizzled with lemon.
And of course for dinner, Martha & Marley Spoon offers wonderful, healthy options. On this month’s menu, look for dishes such as Honey-Harissa Squash Salad with Charred Onions and Baby Kale or Sambal Turkey Meatballs with Coconut Rice and Lettuce Leaves. -Martha Stewart

Honey-Harissa Squash Salad with Charred Onions and Baby Kale
We love acorn squash for its velvety interior and edible skin—roasted in the oven the skin gets crispy. This dish is all at once sweet and spicy and isn’t missing meat one bit. And we’re willing to bet red onions sprinkled with Manchego cheese and baked until sweet and crispy will become your newest addiction.
Sambal Turkey Meatballs with Coconut Rice and Lettuce Leaves
We’ve added depth and flavor to easy turkey meatballs with a sweet and spicy glaze featuring sambal oeleck, a Southeast Asian chili sauce we can’t get enough of. And as we all know, a meal you can eat with your hands is the best kind of meal—enjoy assembling your own lettuce cups with coconut-infused rice, and plenty of that extra sambal sauce!
