7 Healthy Holiday Recipes (gluten and dairy free)

Here are my favorite healthy holiday recipes that the whole family can enjoy! Recipes are gluten-free, dairy-free, healthy & delicious! Try some of these for Thanksgiving or other winter holidays.

My Favorite Healthy Holiday Recipes

I wanted to share some of my favorite healthy holiday recipes with you. My definition of a great recipe is one that is simple, wholesome, delicious, and hearty. One that you feel good about feeding to your whole family. During the holidays, if you focus on nourishing your body, you won’t have to go on a diet when January rolls around. And hopefully you will stay healthy and avoid winter colds and flus as well.

In the fall/winter, we are blessed with an abundance of wonderful ingredients – a true harvest time. Fresh rosemary and thyme, crisp apples, juicy pomegranate seeds, sweet winter squashes, Brussels sprouts, and dark leafy greens are just some of my favorites! I hope this guide helps with planning for holiday get togethers, making delicious, homemade food that nourishes the body and soul.

We can help each other through these trying times

Now that we are all stuck at home I am creating more ways to help you connect to the community through healthy and delicious food. Every Wednesday at noon I am doing a Facebook Live show featuring cooking demos, tips and guest chefs from around the country. You can find that on my personal facebook page facebook.com/rachel.zierzow   

I also just started a low-cost subscription called Cooking Together to help people stay healthy while we all work to get through these challenging times. One of the most important things to me is community, so more than ever I want to focus on the community side of Cook Love Heal. Find out more about it here.
