5 Healthy Holiday Recipes
Traditional foods are an important part of our holiday celebrations. This year, make yours healthier with these 5 scrumptious recipes!
I love the holidays. I get to visit my grandparents in Louisiana, enjoy some downtime, and experience some epic southern-style food. My grandmother's southern recipes are truly special. This year, I used them as inspiration for my own take on holiday foods. I've recreated delicious traditional dishes with more protein and less sugar.
If you want to enjoy holiday fare without worrying about what damage you're doing to your waistline, you need to try these recipes. They're easy, yummy, and boast excellent macronutrient profiles. Bring any of them to your holiday get-together, and I guarantee you'll be the talk of the evening. Or, if you're feeling selfish, make a pie for yourself and enjoy it as a post-workout treat!
So, grab your apron and a mixing bowl. It's time to spend some time in the kitchen. Let me know how your recipes turned out and what additions you made in the comments section below. Happy baking!
