After the holidays, it’s important to get back to smart eating habits. That’s why we’ve collected our healthiest meal kit recipes in a single, comprehensive "healthy eating" list. Establish good food habits - and keep them - by making these hearty soups and vegetable-forward dinners. They'll help keep your New Year's resolutions on track.

Warm Vegetable Pan Roast with Feta & Arugula-Pepita Salad Never have we been so strategic with our forks when building a bite of this dynamic salad: golden brown sweet potato, roasted red onion, crunchy pumpkin seeds, creamy feta and nutty mushrooms—all aboard! Tossed in a tangy vinaigrette and served with toasty ciabatta, this salad is an exciting marriage of textures and flavors.

Winter Vitality Bowl with Chicken and Vegetables In this colorful and filling grain bowl, carrots and beets are peeled and shredded raw—truly the best way to highlight their natural sweetness while alsolending a refreshing crunchy texture. (Be sure to wear gloves when grating beets to protect your skin from the juices.) Dijon mustard is the secret to a tangy and slightly creamy dressing.

Shiitake & Bok Choy Rice Bowl with Carrot Salad and Beans This meal is balance in a bowl. Slivers of shiitake mushrooms provide depth and umami to the rice, and chopped bok choy provides refreshing crunch. We added two bright toppings: grated carrots and adzuki beans, which we love for their reddish hue. Both are tossed in a punchy ginger dressing that will boost your immune system as the weather gets cooler.

Roasted Cauliflower and Lentils with Tahini and Sumac Cauliflower cooks up nutty and tender when roasted in this hearty meal. (And we love Medjool dates because they taste like brown sugar caramel.) Served over tender lentils and topped with a tangy tahini sauce, you’ll be scraping your plate clean.

Italian Green Vegetable Soup with Crusty Garlic Bread Tuscan cuisine epitomizes simplicity, and this famous soup is no exception. Ribollita translates to “reboiled,” as historically, this soup was made in one day and allowed to sit overnight. Reheated the next day, the developed flavors were even better than the day before. We dare you to test that self-control with this recipe!
