Healthy Holiday Recipes Week Two Round Up

Here’s week two of the Healthy Holiday Recipe Round Up and we have some great recipe finds for you to add to your holiday menu. With Thanksgiving just a week away in the US it’s time to start planning what you are going to serve for this special meal.

First we have a Root Vegetable Ragout submitted by Sarah of Heart Of Cooking. This veggie stew is more like a pureed soup so it would be great to serve as a first course. It is not only healthy, it’s dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, egg-free and sugar-free, for those of you who need to follow a special diet. Try this veggie ragout, it sounds totally yummy!

By the way, I thought I should mention that Watkins chicken soup and gravy base is gluten and wheat free.

Our next recipe is great side dish for diabetics or anyone who wants to eat healthier from Amanda at Mrs W’s Kitchen. You’ll find 3 versions of Pureed White Beans a high fiber alternative to mashed potatoes, they all sound delicious so let us know which one you tried!

Carrots are one of our favorite vegetables and we are lucky to have an organic grower just down the road. Try these Organic Citrus Honey Carrots, they make a wonderful side dish for your vegetarian or traditional holiday meal. These moist, Low Fat Lemon Muffins are perfect for a holiday brunch or any time you want a quick snack. Both recipes are from Love Homemaking.

Last but not least, here is a healthier version of a traditional favorite Christmas Spice Cookies. Cookies are an enduring favorite holiday treat with milk or hot cocoa for the kids or served with coffee or tea for adults. This version has whole wheat four, honey and molasses so you can indulge with out guilt.

My apologies for posting this a day late. Thank you to everyone who has submitted their recipes, and we look forward to seeing your recipes next week. Here’s how to submit them.
