TOP 3: Healthy Christmas Recipes

My kids love the sugary treats during the holidays... so I need to balance out the sugar crazies with some delicious family-friendly, nutrition-packed meals!


This first recipe is something the kids can help you prepare. Don't forget to keep hands and fingers safe from sharp knives and raw meat! You can swap out chicken or tofu for turkey!

Turkey (or Chicken/Tofu) and Veggie Skewers:

  • What you'll need:

    • Turkey breast, cut into cubes

    • Cherry tomatoes

    • Bell peppers (red and green), cut into chunks

    • Zucchini, sliced

    • Olive oil, for marinating

    • Italian seasoning (optional)

    • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Let's get cookin':

    1. Marinate turkey cubes in olive oil, Italian seasoning (if using), salt, and pepper.

    2. Thread marinated turkey, cherry tomatoes, bell peppers, and zucchini onto skewers.

    3. Grill or bake until the turkey is cooked through and the veggies are tender.



Next up we have my personal favorite that can be made with organic flour or gluten free corn, almond or casava tortillas.

Christmas Tree Quesadillas:

  • What you'll need:

    • Organic tortillas

    • Cooked chicken, shredded

    • Black beans, drained and rinsed

    • Corn kernels

    • Shredded cheese (cheddar or Mexican blend)

    • Avocado, sliced

    • Salsa or Greek yogurt for dipping


  • Let's get cookin':

    1. Cut tortillas into triangle shapes to form Christmas trees.

    2. On one half of each triangle, layer shredded chicken, black beans, corn, and cheese.

    3. Fold the other half of the tortilla over the filling to create a quesadilla.

    4. Heat in a skillet until the cheese is melted. Arrange avocado slices on top to resemble ornaments.

    5. Serve with salsa or Greek yogurt for dipping.


Last but NOT least, if your kids are like mine, you can get them to eat their veggies if they can play with them first! This is less of a recipe and more of an art project, but you get the jist!


Snowman Vegetable Platter:

  • What you'll need:

    • Cauliflower florets

    • Baby carrots

    • Cherry tomatoes

    • Cucumber slices

    • Hummus or yogurt-based dip


  • Let's get cookin':

    1. Arrange cauliflower florets in the shape of a snowman on a platter.

    2. Use baby carrots to create the snowman's body and cucumber slices for the scarf.

    3. Add cherry tomatoes for buttons and eyes.

    4. Serve with hummus or a yogurt-based dip for a tasty and festive veggie platter.


These recipes offer a festive touch while incorporating nutritious ingredients, making them perfect for family meals during the Christmas season!


Merry Christmas & LOVE and YUM!!
