Make Your Holidays Happy & Healthy With Clean Eating

RSS

While it may seem counterintuitive, eating clean during the holidays is deliciously doable and easier than you might think. Why wait until the morning after when you’ve already gained several pounds to dive head first into your weight loss goals when you can start today? Eating clean is all about finding healthier replacements for the foods you love.

A few of you asked what I will be serving for Easter (Resurrection Day), so I thought I would share my clean eating secrets with all of you. Cooking delicious food for family and friends can be very tricky, and my family is no different. If you're like me, you will always find the following types of eaters at your dinner table: The finicky one, the gluten-free person, a Lacto-Ovo vegetarian, a bodybuilder who needs a ton of lean proteins, and my favorite kind to feed... the polite ones who eat whatever you put in front of them!

Being Italian, I love to feed people, especially when you hear the YUMMMMMM, this is delicious, from each one of them. This year it's brunch after church and the menu is roast turkey breast, crunchy cabbage slaw (AKA bunny food), mock mashed potatoes for the clean eaters, roasted asparagus bundles (recipes can be found in The Metabolism Solution), and of course, a sweet Italian kugel (it's noodle kugel for the carb eaters). And, for the best part (dessert), the crowd-pleasing “Skinny Cheesecake” (recipe below), and of course, my famous lower-carb, lower-calorie Peanut Butter Balls to offset some jelly beans that might find their way into my mouth!

Most of these recipes use LynFit Egg White Protein because eggs are so popular this time of year, and for a good reason. As a Christian, we believe the egg represents rebirth, creation, and promise. I love Easter for this reason—it brings a feeling of newness and rebirth, no matter what you believe. Happy Easter from my family to yours!

Now, let me help you make your holiday happier and healthier with these delicious recipes that your whole family will love. You can find even more clean, healthy, metabolic boosting recipes here.
