New Year's Day is around the corner, and most of us will be celebrating the start of 2017 with a delicious brunch. If one of your resolutions includes health, go ahead and add these two tasty items to the menu: Quiche Lorraine and Bloody Mary Ice Pops. My slimming versions will be the perfect "bonjour!" to a fantastic year.

Quiche is an ever-popular breakfast dish, but its buttery crust and full-fat filling cause calories and saturated fat to add! I've slimmed down the recipe and amped up the nutrition by creating a delicious spinach crust with a cheesy Parmesan flavor. I've also nixed the heavy cream and bacon and chosen lower fat substitutes. The end result? A whopping decrease from 600 calories to only 220 calories per slice. Now, go ahead, and enjoy!

Joy's Bloody Mary Ice Pops

In the mood for a boozy brunch? A Bloody Mary is one of my favorite sips. However, with all of the fancy garnishes, each glass can pack more than 130 calories. I reinvented this classic and created Bloody Mary Ice Pops — better known as "Poptails" in my house. Ringing in with only 20 calories per pop, these spicy, savory treats even have edible celery popsicle sticks! Get the recipe here!
