Want to enjoy the holidays and your indulgences, but leave the guilt at home? Last year around the holidays I was doing a special cleanse and had a very limited nutrition plan, and cranberries were the only fruit I could eat, ironically. So I found this awesome sugar free healthy cranberry sauce recipe on recipes.steviva.com and it tasted awesome! I thought I had posted it last year but apparently not, so here it is now for you to enjoy for the holidays!
It never ceases to confound me. What would normally be considered health conscious, nutrition minded people who would never touch canned veggies any other time….suddenly the holidays roll around and they are making all their recipes with canned pumpkin…and saying “here’s a healthy nutritious recipe!”
Wait….didn’t you miss something? You’re using a canned veggie! Besides sulfites, sodium, etc…you can easily google and find all the issues with eating canned food. It’s just getting to be common sense these days, especially with vegetables, to go fresh or frozen. Plus, with pumpkin, it’s SO EASY to create the same thing using fresh pumpkin, and it tastes SO much better!
Years ago my mom finally made the switch, and it made SUCH a difference in her pumpkin pies! I’ll never go back, and I’ve become a one man fresh pumpkin advocate each fall and winter! Want to see how easy it is? Here ya go:
I was challenged with going raw vegan for a week, which has been interesting and a learning experience, as is any new nutrition plan. After 4 days of doing well, my sweet tooth’s curiosity wondered what raw vegan dessert recipes I could find online.
I came across this very tasty recipe and had to try it. The first piece I’ve had was good, though I think I will let it sit out to thaw a bit next time. Whether you’re doing raw vegan, regular vegan, or something completely different, you should give this a try…the icing is amazing and very creamy!
