A Whole Bunch of Healthy Holiday Recipes

 

In search of healthy holiday recipes for a healthy Christmas dinner and beyond? You're in luck, because you'll find a whole bunch of healthy holiday recipes right here.

After munching on buttery trail mix, chomping on one cheese appetizer too many, and wolfing down rich desserts at least once or twice a week since Thanksgiving, you might actually be craving a nutrient-packed dish that's light on the stomach. But since the holiday season isn't typically synonymous with healthy eating, how can you celebrate all the festivities and still show your body some much-needed love with good-for-you foods? 

I've got a few ideas. In this blog post, I'm dishing out a list of oh-so-healthy side dishes perfect for any potluck, plus big-batch punch recipes that will bring life to any party (even the alcohol-free ones!). And while some dishes are concocted with the intent to cut calories and sugars, I'm sharing heart-healthy recipes that actually bring nutrients to the table. I'm going to be serving up many of these recipes at my holiday-themed birthday party (yes, I'm a Christmas baby!) this weekend. Start taking notes now, especially since we're in the holiday homestretch!
