Hi there,
 
Hope you're doing well this holiday season! We have just a week and a half left until Christmas, so I thought I would help you out a bit with some holiday recipes you can add to your meal plan. These recipes will go over well with everyone you might be sharing your food with!
 
Savory
 
Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta & Sage

  • 2 lbs Brussels Sprouts, halved
  • 1 large leek, thinly sliced
  • 4oz pancetta, thinly sliced
  • 1 TBSP fresh sage, chopped
  • 2 TBSP extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt to taste

Cooking Instructions
Set your oven to 375. Place the Brussels Sprouts, leek, pancetta, and sage on a large rimmed baking sheet. Add the olive oil and salt. Toss until coated. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the Brussels Sprouts begin to lightly brown and the pancetta becomes crispy.
 
Slow Roasted Prime Rib
Prime Rib is a holiday tradition for many and oh so delicious.
 
Honey Garlic Chicken Wings
There are plenty of people who don't like spicy, so these wings are a nice option along side the hot ones.
 
Tahini Vegetable Dipping Sauce
Serve with carrots, cucumber, radishes, olives, cauliflower, and broccoli.
 
Sweet
 
Cranberry Sauce
With cranberry sauce like this, no need to limit it only to Thanksgiving!
 
Superfood Chocolate Bark
Just yum. Simple and delicious.
 
Snickerdoodles
I recommend using the coconut oil with these snickerdoodles. They're a huge hit every time! If you don't have a sifter, put the flours through a fine strainer. And remember they need to rest in the fridge for an hour before going in the oven.
 
Salted Caramel Pecan Pie
A new family favorite and easy to make!
 
Christmas Cutout Cookies
It's nice to have a healthier option for this fun holiday tradition!
 
In case you missed it, I talked all about staying healthy over the holidays in the newsletter right before Thanksgiving. Even if you're not able to cook all the healthy options you desire, the tips I shared will help you to let go of the guilt and take actions that will still support your health.
