It’s officially the holiday season! Toady on Good Food Friday I shared simple tips to stay healthy this holiday season.
A easy and simple cold-weather meal
Between holiday parties, shopping and travel, we need healthy meals that are SIMPLE. Pacific’s NEW LINE of organic soups made with bone broth fit the bill. They come in five delicious, hearty flavors made with plant-based add ins like white beans and kale. Each contains with 7-10 grams of protein per serving so some major staying power. Simply pour, heat and eat.
Upgrade your healthy party platters
One way to upgrade your healthy party platters to add fruit, veggies and CRACKERS made with veggies. I shared the Sweet Potato, Sweet Beet and Kale ARTISAN crackers by RW Garcia. They are made simple, nutritious ingredients including chia, sesame and flax seeds, which have those good for you fats. All RW Garcia products are made from stone ground non-GMO corn and they are certified gluten-free. You can find them at Harris Teeter.
Upgrade your pasta dishes
My next healthy holiday tip is to replace your traditional pasta with a pasta made with legumes. I shared the Simply Legume Pastas by TOLERANT. They’re organic, naturally gluten-free and made with only one ingredient – legumes! Unlike traditional pasta, which is mostly carbohydrates, these are higher in protein, fiber, iron and B vitamins. So it’s an easy way to bump up the nutrition of your holiday pasta dishes.
Bring balance to the holiday season
You can ALSO bring balance to your holidays with great tasting beer. I shared the Michelob Ultra Pure Gold. It’s a first of its kind organic beer that’s lower in calories and carbohydrates than a glass of wine. One bottle has 85 calories and 2 and a half grams of carbs. It’s made with organic grains, free from artificial flavors or colors, and it has a light and refreshing taste.
