With all the efforts to stick to healthy eating all year round, then when the holiday comes in, all of that “job well done” healthy eating mantra seems to have just thrown out the window. Temptations come throughout the months of November and December. We dine more richly during these seasons at family dinners, cocktail parties, office holiday gatherings, potluck suppers and many more happenings to which dishes on these occasions’ tables seem obligatory to indulge with. Then, here comes the guilt lurking. Stirring your conscience, pulling you back to your diet standards, telling you to stop loosening your belt every time you hop into special occasions. Well, that’s forgivable! These beloved dishes don’t appear all year after all, so why cut the joy of pampering yourself from the menu? But let’s not forget our limitations and not overdo it of course. So we compiled these recipes you can add to your holiday menu that’s not only appetizing and soul-filling but “strict” diet-friendly too.
