14 Healthier Christmas Recipes For Every Part Of Your Meal

Christmas is almost here and we couldn’t be more excited for the food, the family and the presents.

That being said, there are a bevvy of unhealthy options out there, that’s why – while many of us can’t wait to indulge – will be hosting our own dinners filled with endlessly more nutrition options.

If you are looking for some healthy Christmas recipes, we’ve thought up one of the most streamlined (yet decadent) menus yet.

Appetizers are important and can be prepared the day before – meaning that they are half the stress and can keep your guests entertained while you’re frantically scrounging around the kitchen.
