The holiday season is full of festive spirits, time with friends and family, and delicious food! Often I hear people talking about the holiday recipes they are excited to enjoy and, of course, lamenting how many calories are in each tasty dish. While the holidays are a wonderful time to indulge in some of our favorite foods, there are simple changes we can make to ensure our health goals aren’t put on hold! Over the next several days I am going to share three of my favorite holiday recipes with you so please try them out!

Have a happy, healthy (and delicious) holiday!

Cinnamon Roasted Almonds 

This one is delicious and SO easy- it is perfect for parties and, of course, snacking! All you need is almonds (2 cups), ground cinnamon (1 teaspoon), salt (½ teaspoon), and olive oil (1 tablespoon). First, preheat your oven to 250°. While it is heating up, mix the almonds, cinnamon, salt and olive oil in a large bowl and toss it to coat all the almonds. Then spread the nuts out in a single layer on a baking sheet and put it in the oven for one hour. You can enjoy them immediately or store them in airtight container for later!
