This is the time in January when we all start slipping on our New Year's resolutions. So while we've pledged to cut down on the bad stuff and eat better this year, the temptation to go back to our old ways is tempting. Luckily, the TODAY Food Club is here to keep us going strong with delicious and creative recipes that work for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Joanie of ZagLeft looked to South America as inspiration for this dish, which includes a wonderful chimichurri that works on all types of meat. To keep things light, she pairs the sauce with turkey meatballs that are great as a standalone appetizer or pasta topper (remember, go whole grain!).
