With the holiday season in full swing, albeit a little different this year, we wanted to give you some awesome ways to tweak classic holiday dishes in order to cut down on sugar and empty calories and amp up the nutrients.
Who doesn't love pie? Crestless pies or pecan crusted pies in place of a traditional crusted pie, or just grilled fruit!
Yogurt in place of whip.
Sour cream in place of almond milk.
Chickpea flour and eggs or coconut oil in place of butter
Grade b maple syrup in place of sugar.
Celtic sea salt or lemon juice in place of processed salt
Cream cheese in place of hummus
Coconut milk in place of half and half
Veggies and shrimp in place of meat and cheese
Dark chocolate in place of milk chocolate
