I love this time of year. It’s filled with long dinners with friends and family, delicious food, and great conversations. I often host holiday dinners at my home, and love to create healthy, nourishing, and mouth watering dishes to serve to my loved ones.
So many of my patients have anxiety around this time of year and feel that they must succumb to sugar treats and processed junk available at holiday parties. Well, I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to sabotage your health goals to enjoy the season. Recipes that use real, whole, nutritionally dense foods not only keep you healthy, but they taste better too.
Today, my team and I put together a list of my favorite holiday recipes in case you’re looking for ideas for your holiday dinners. We’ve got appetizers, sides, mains, and even dessert. Enjoy!
