Holiday Recipes You Can Feel Good About

We want to continue emphasizing the importance of your relationship with food. It fuels you, energizes you, and allows your body to do what it needs to do. If it tastes great in the process, bonus. Should you eat foods you don’t love? Not necessarily, but should you be sure you’re eating foods that are colorful and REAL (fruits, veggies, meats, nuts, sweet potatoes, and the like)? For sure. So, we wanted to put together a few recipes for you this holiday season that you can enjoy and feel great about.

Harvest Chicken and Sweet Potato Salad from Eat the Gains: This chicken & sweet potato salad takes all those fall flavors and combines them together. Roasted sweet potatoes, seasoned chicken, cranberries, pecans, and a cinnamon tahini dressing.
