Many people want to feel healthier after the holidays and recent research suggests the best place to do that is in your own kitchen; one new study found that people like healthy food more when they make it themselves.

You don’t have to go gourmet to get there, according to Cooking Light (which is owned by TIME’s parent company). The Cooking Light Diet is a new meal plan designed to get your diet back on track with weekly menus. For people hoping to shed some pounds, the diet offers recipes based on food preferences and factors like how much you love leftovers.

Here’s what a day on the diet looks like:

Breakfast
