Holiday Recipes

As the end of the year approaches, try these healthy holiday recipes. You'll find main dishes, appetizers, sides and desserts!

Root Vegetable Cakes

These cakes make a great side dish or snack and are excellent when paired with our Beef and Sweet Potato Stew.

Roasted Potatoes, Carrots and Parsnips

Roasting vegetables is the best way to bring out their natural sweet flavor. It's easy to do and these three fall veggies make a tasty medley.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts

These Roasted Brussels Sprouts are low in calories and in carbohydrate, which means they may be helpful for controlling blood glucose. Roasting helps to enhance their flavor.

Ratatouille

This is another great side dish for the holidays. It’s packed with vegetables and is relatively low in calories.

Quinoa Dessert Pudding

Quinoa is a high-protein whole grain. This pudding can be a treat during the holidays, but don't forget to rinse the quinoa before cooking. Rinsing it helps to avoid any bitter taste.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

This pumpkin smoothie makes a unique yet tasty treat for the holiday season.

Pumpkin Apple Protein Bars

Freeze these bars in individual snack size bags and grab one on your way to the gym to have as a snack after a good workout! Be sure to use canned pumpkin, not pumpkin pie filling which has extra sugar added to it.

Potato Casserole

A cheesy potato casserole is a holiday favorite for many families. However, this dish is typically loaded with calories, fat, and carbohydrates. This healthier version of potato casserole will save you several hundred calories and several grams of fat.

Pecan Crusted Turkey Tenderloin with Sweet Potatoes

Nothing says the holidays like turkey and sweet potatoes. This delightful dish is full of vitamin A, fiber and healthy fats from the pecans.

Pasta Fagioli

This hearty Italian soup makes a great lunch or side dish with your holiday meal. To cut down on prep time, chop the onion, garlic, celery, and carrots quickly using a food processor.
