A holiday treat can fit into a healthy lifestyle. It may be an adjustment saying “no” to traditional Christmas treats, but having alternatives that support your body is a gift you can give yourself and your loved ones.
Fruit is some of the healthiest food we can eat. It’s full of powerful antioxidants, slowing down and preventing cell damage. A platter of red grapes, berries, pears and apples provide anti-aging properties because of these antioxidants. I enjoy serving ‘caramel’ dip, made from dates, from this recipe Apples with “Caramel” Dip.
In addition to a fruit platter, add a few cookies as a holiday treat. The cookies listed here are made with natural ingredients, free from refined flours and sugars, dairy, gluten and eggs. Each of these cookies are delicious and easy to make.
