This year, more than ever, celebrating with a healthy meal is another way to care for ourselves and each other by serving real food to support our immune systems and balanced moods. 

Couple a great feast with the stress of a pandemic and it’s a recipe for overdoing it – we’ve all been there. It’s so common it’s become a cliché, you’re lethargic, ready for a nap, and can’t think about taking another bite. Let’s stop that overeating holiday cycle by the best way we know how, by stocking our table with balanced, real foods instead of processed foods that often trick our brains into consuming more.

To get you started, here’s a roundup of some of our favorite Nutritional Weight & Wellness holiday recipes. From brining your turkey, to delicious appetizers, savory sides, and sweet treats, we’ve got you covered! The best news when cooking for a smaller group means … more leftovers! Come Friday your fridge will be stocked with healthy options to combine for more delicious meals.
