Holiday Recipes and Nourishing Yourself Through the Season

Fifty recipes for holiday and winter entertaining, nourishing yourself through the season, adding sparkle to your meals, and gifting. All of these recipes are gluten and dairy-free. The majority are completely plant-based, and when appropriate, whole-grain, lower in sugar or refined sugar free.

All photos and recipe titles are linked. In whatever way you’re spending this holiday season–whether it will be in company, life as usual, eating during the off season after a busy athletic season or training through it, healing your body or celebrating it’s health– I hope you find inspiration and nourishment for your winter meals here. And that the darker days offer time to slow down and reflect on what brings joy or peace amidst the season.
