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.
