Bon Vivant #11 - Healthy Appetite

Happy New Year everyone! Hope you all had a fun New Year's Eve and celebrated it with family and friends. I did too. Rather too much fun that we all are lacking sleep now. But the sugar rush is such that it's doing it's work. So after all the holiday season and cooking rich food, I am sure everyone wants to try and eat healthy. Half of the world population has this as one of the their new year's resolution I think. :o) I don't really make resolutions, but I do start back into healthy eating after the holiday indulge. 

So this month Bon Vivant, I invite you to like up all your healthy cooking. I do not want to define what is healthy, please use your on discretion when linking up your recipes. You could replace certain fat ingredients like butter with oil in your recipe, you could bake instead of frying, you could use multi-grain instead of all purpose, or you could exchange the main ingredients of the recipe with a healthier substitute. Possibilities are endless.. And who knows your recipes might be next to be selected for featuring on my blog. Please see the notes below about this. 

Rules for the Bon Vivant event :
~ Multiple entries are allowed. Usage of the logo is a must.
Linking back to this announcement page is mandatory to get the word out. I have noticed many of them are not back linked. I will have to promptly remove them if not linked back after one notice.
~ Vegetarian and non-vegetarian recipes are allowed. No pork or beef ingredients please.
~ Blog post should be in month of Jan.
~ Two old posts are allowed, if re-posted again in Jan.
~ Please link up your post using the linkz below. In case of any problem linking please send me an email with your name, recipe name, recipe click and url to
~ Non-bloggers can email the recipe along with a picture of the dish to the above email address.

NOTE - "Favorite Bon Vivant of the Month"
- I will choose a recipe from all the entries to Bon Vivant in the previous month (in this case, it will be Jan 2013 Bon Vivant).
I will inform the owner of the recipe before-hand about the selection, so if you have any apprehension you can let me know and I will pick another one to feature. Also I will wait for two days for reply, just so that I don't wait too long to choose another one. 
- I will try that recipe in the next month, take pictures, but link for recipe will be given to the original recipe of yours. So I will feature you, your blog and your recipe on my blog. 
A humble note: I am featuring one recipe a month, that does not mean that other participants weren't good enough. It's just that I liked the recipe and wanted to try it immediately. Solely based on my instincts and discretion.
