Is “Eating Healthily’ written in your 2017’s resolution list? Or maybe “diet” is the one written instead?

The end of the year is near but maybe for some of you, the resolution to live healthier is just out of your reach. Being a college student where you have a bunch of deadlines lead you to crave midnight snacks although you realize it’s not the best idea to eat right before you sleep. Albeit, it’s nearing the end of the year, so don’t give up yet! You can still start a new healthy diet before our year-end holiday.

So, instead of binge eating your ice cream or taking a drive to the nearest 24-hour fast food chain, why don’t you try these easy recipes that can perfectly match your sweet-tooth as well as your savory taste! It might require some extra energy to do so, but the fact that you feed yourself right will be satisfying.
