Tessa The Domestic Diva

Creamy Hot Artichoke Dip

By far one of my favorite dips. To be honest I try and stay away from it because of it’s “intense” calorie load. But now I don’t have to. Thanks to Tessa. One of the quintessential holiday appys made healthier. Thanks Tessa!

The Spinach Spot

Cranberry Spinach Salad with a Cranberry Vinaigrette

Who said the holidays have to be a time when we all put on 5 pounds? Look at this beautiful salad loaded with nutritious ingredients. Why not have a salad for dinner or lunch to lighten up the load of all those rich holidays feasts? Don’t you just feel healthier just looking at it? What’s your favorite holiday salad?

Queen of Quinoa

Quinoa Stuffed Sweet Potato

I just love this! We often have quinoa cooked and ready to go in the fridge for fast breakfasts and dinners. I just can’t wait to try this out as soon as I get some sweet potatoes! Doesn’t this just look like the perfect comfort food, perfect for a dark, cold and stormy night?

Eating Freely

Festive Fig Bites (no bake)

It wouldn’t be right if I didn’t share some holiday treats. After all it is the season of indulgence. But why not treat yourself to something healthy and sweet. These grain free, dairy free, raw and vegan figgy bites are perfect for the holidays, no matter who’s on your guest list! I’m sure this would work with dates too.

Cooking Quinoa

Salted Quinoa Chocolate Bark With Pistachios

I can’t resist salted sweets. They are the perfect combination. Then she went and added popped quinoa and pistachios…swoon. Since the holidays couldn’t be complete without a little chocolate, I think a little “bark” is in order!

I invite all of you to share, no matter where you are on your journey, but I ask you to stay mindful when sharing your recipes that this is a whole (real) food blog. This means, no ingredient lists that include edible oil products (velveeta, frozen whip topping), protein powders, ketchup, white flour, margarine or white and brown sugar.
