Celebrate Healthier Holidays With These Delicious and Good-for-you Menu Items

The holidays are a time for celebration with friends and family. Finding the healthiest and most delicious recipes for this joyous season can sometimes be challenging. At Famous Foods, we offer an array of organic and natural foods in Vancouver to help you create the perfect baked goods and dishes to keep you happy and healthy throughout the holiday season.

Here are some ideas for your next get-together with family and friends.

Start with apples

From apple crumble bars to simple baked apples, this versatile fruit can be the foundation for a wide range of healthy desserts. Choosing organic apples from Famous Foods can allow you to enjoy healthy eating during the holiday season. Apple cider can be dressed up with cinnamon and spices to create a delicious hot drink for you and your family.

Go gluten-free

Many of your favourite holiday treats can be even better when you make them gluten-free. Substituting arrowroot flour, sorghum flour or other paleo flour options in your cookie recipes can allow you to create an array of delicious gluten-free options for snacking and sharing during this festive time of the year.

Dip into healthy snacks

Fruit dips and vegetable-based dips for chips can allow you to snack healthier throughout the holiday season. Spinach, artichokes and Greek yogurt can be the main ingredients in a delicious dip suitable for breads or chips. Consider hummus as a healthy alternative to dips based on sour cream for a happier and healthier holiday.

Keep the main attraction healthier

While roasted turkey, chicken or beef are often the centerpiece for holiday meals, you can also offer vegetarian and vegan alternatives that are just as tasty. Pasta with a hearty sauce is a great way to accommodate those who do not eat meat or who would prefer a less-heavy entrée for their holiday meal. Famous Foods offers a variety of produce that can help you create a delicious pasta dish for your friends and family.
