Sweets for the Holidays: Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Sugar Free, Oil-free Holiday Treats

Holidays are a time of celebration and cheer. They’re special events when you set aside time to get together with friends and family to simply appreciate each other. It’s a time to enjoy the festivities, the decorations, the parties and the connection with the special people in your life.

The fall and winter holiday season begins with Halloween and Thanksgiving, and continues through to New Year’s Day, 2 months later. In between are Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, Yule, and Solstice, holidays that are celebrated to varying degrees by those in the Western world.

One thing that all holidays and celebrations have in common is their focus on food.

Office parties, family dinners, and holiday open houses offer an array of tempting cookies and festive desserts. Unless you have yummy healthy treats and really strong coping strategies it’s hard to resist.

The foods that fill your holiday plates do nothing to enhance your health and do everything to clog your arteries, raise your blood sugar, expand your waistline and leave you feeling sluggish, bloated, and foggy headed.

Even if you've been dedicated to vibrant health for a long time, staying strong and true to your health commitment is a challenge when you’re surrounded by the smells and tastes that remind you of past holidays and connect you with family and friends. You may have even learned to equate these foods with love.

The pressure from friends and family to eat the old favorites can be overwhelming, especially if you've only recently adopted healthy eating habits. Add to that the magnitude of the long holiday to-do list (shopping for, wrapping, and exchanging gifts; sending cards; decorating; and making food) and it's only natural for you to become overly stressed or anxious.

Face it – most of us, myself included, grew up using food to comfort and soothe us.

Certain aromas may remind you of the comfort of grandma’s house on a special holiday, or a special person or feeling that you became connected to early on in your life.

Rather than giving in to temptation, or depriving yourself of tasty foods and feeling angry and resentful about it, you can learn to recreate your favorite holiday treats in ways that are delicious, nutritious and fun and easy to make.

Learn how to satisfy your palate while letting go of the emotional attachment to the foods of your past. Join us for our class “ Sweets for the Holidays: Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Sugar Free, Oil-free Holiday Treats” and learn to make amazing gluten free, dairy free, raw vegan versions of traditional holiday treats such as gingerbread men, cookies in festive seasonal shapes, candy, turtle brownies and more.

You can take these to parties, give them as gifts or serve them at your own holiday gatherings. These recipes are not just for the holidays, either. You can use them for celebrations all year long.
