TOTW Tuesday: Serve Santa a Healthier Cookie Tonight!

by Ashley on December 24, 2013

Hi there! Merry, merry Christmas Eve! I hope you are enjoying time with family and friends during this magical time of year! I am working most of the day (fingers crossed we get out early), but cannot wait to get home and let the celebrations begin.

I am cooking a big breakfast for my family tomorrow morning so I hope to make it home in enough time to prep everything before the festivities tonight!  On the menu goes something like this: g-free biscuits and vegan sausage gravy (the hub’s latest challenge for me), raspberry chia jam, breakfast casserole, eggless breakfast casserole, yogurt parfaits, fresh fruit, smoothies, coffee, tea and mimosas! I’m crossing my fingers that everything turns out delicious!


Anyway, being Christmas eve, today’s Tip of the Week was an easy one for me to select: instead of filling Santa up with unhealthy white sugar filled cookies, give his reindeer a break and serve him up something a little bit healthier this year!

Santa and Mrs. Claus both will thank you for helping him fight off disease like diabetes, cardiovascular disease and cancer and get a little bit healthier this Christmas season!

Merry Christmas dear friends! I hope Santa brings you all of the desires of your heart!

Good health!
