Welcome to March Wellness! If you're new here, we're on a mission to make March as healthy as possible. Have a read for more details...

Below I've included a few of my favorite healthy meal ideas, for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The lunch and dinner options are pretty interchangeable, and many of the soups and grain-based salads are perfect make-ahead options to pack for a healthy lunch at work.

What about snacks? Keep them simple, and try and include some protein in each to keep your blood sugar levels steady. Some of my favorites are: a handful of almonds (roasted or raw), a small apple with some almond butter, a low-sugar KIND bar, hummus with raw veggies, or a hard-boiled egg. And stay hydrated - you'll find you're less hungry between meals!

My name is Anna Watson Carl. In a word, I love food, I love France, and I love throwing dinner parties. Over the years, I've worked as a personal chef, taught cooking classes, edited cookbooks, written for magazines, tested and styled recipes, and traveled whenever opportunity has arisen. But at heart, there's nothing I love more than sharing a meal with friends around the yellow table.

For me, cooking has always been a way of life. As a (mildly precocious) ten-year old, I planned and prepared a four-course Valentine's dinner for my parents, birthing a lifelong passion for dinner parties. That was just the beginning. I've been cooking ever since, whipping up souffles at a chateau in Burgundy, searing filet mignon for a wealthy client's dog (bizarre, but true), butchering ducks for confit de canard in Paris, baking the night shift in Nashville, and bathing the floor of my NYC apartment in turkey brine...the story continues.
