a Healthy Happy Holiday menu

About this time of year we hear an awful lot about “the holiday 10,” the anticipated weight gain from all the festivities. Well, who says that has to happen?

… “you just gotta live…” and “there is so much chocolate everywhere” and bake sales and cookies and…

Guess what? I believe in indulgence. And indulgent food can still be good for you, can still work within those goals for keeping slim and fit, and doesn’t have to cause the sugar rush and energy crunch of most holiday fare.We’ve created a collection of wheat-free, refined sugar-free, and dairy-free recipes.

Our menu follows and please let me know if you have healthy traditions of your own.

Enjoy! Dr. Greg, Marie, and your team at the Alaska Health Improvement Center
