Lighter Foods for Post-Holiday Meals

The holidays are a time of indulging and, yes, often overindulging! Luckily, there’s a nice break between Thanksgiving and Hanukkah and Christmas to help you slow down from heavy foods and get some of the delicious seasonal greens and other produce on the menu.

The holidays are a time of indulging and, yes, often overindulging!

When you’re among friends and family, and so much delicious food, it can be hard to say no to another scoop of mashed potatoes or a late-night snack of leftover pie.

Luckily, there’s a nice break between Thanksgiving and Hanukkah and Christmas to help you slow down from heavy foods and get some of the delicious seasonal greens and other produce on the menu.

Start Fresh

Get the day going on the right foot by filling your breakfast full of fresh produce. Our Double Greens Smoothie, filled with spinach and kale, is the perfect option. Or try these others:

Sunny Citrus Smoothie

The midday meal is an ideal time to relax and eat a filling meal. Round out any dish with a big salad of fresh greens and your favorite dressing (like our No-Oil Balsamic Dressing).

Try:

Lentil and Quinoa Salad with Cashews
Kale, Carrot and Avocado Salad

Snack Smart

OK, so you might not feel like reaching for the carrot and celery sticks. You can still eat healthfully while calming your snack attack. Try our Pumpkin Pecan Cookies if you’ve got a cookie craving, or try these snacks:

Flavorful, healthy dinners don’t have to take a lot of time. Using fragrant herbs and spices, you can transform a variety of ingredients and not need to add heavy fats, cream, or less-nutrient-dense foods.
