This time of year has the reputation for being a calorie-rich and guilt-inducing marathon of over-eating.
We love treating ourselves after a long day (and month!) of staging but when we choose healthy decadence, we feel so much better, inside and out.
Healthy eating isn’t a fad; it can be a way of life through all seasons. We think if you are willing to try these new dishes for your holiday feast (and beyond), you will be surprised at how flavourful and creative they are, both on the plate and on your palate.
Here are some wonderful looking recipes that we can’t wait to make for ourselves, and share with dear friends and family this holiday season.
