I am delighted to be sharing 12 of the tastiest festive recipes with some thoughtful and healthy substitutions with you. Lighter bites, sides for the main event, plenty of desserts and sweet treats – everything but the turkey.
This time of year isn’t about being angelic, it’s undeniably about treating yourself and others. And you can do this healthily. I’ll show you how simple, clever use of ‘whole foods’ here and there can transform traditional dishes to help you maintain a gluten and refined sugar-free diet without feeling like you’re missing out. Most of the recipes can be adapted for a dairy-free diet too.
