Treats Can Be Healthy
December has a way of sneaking up on me. I get a few gifts, start planning our holiday schedule, and bam! Less than 3 weeks are left.
Although we try to steer away from a consumer-based holiday season, we still participate in the general merriment with our annual decorating of the twig and our homemade advent calendar for Maddie.
What's a homemade advent calendar consist of? Well I'm glad you asked.
It's a set of little boxes, artfully decorated by your very own farmers, and filled with things that will delight our 2-year old.
Organic (some of it local) dried fruit, a locally purchased handmade wooden christmas ornament, pinecones, and other little marvels that make our toddler go "ooooh".
And while it is important to allow our little ones to live in a world of wonder and amazement, it is just as important to treat us older folks too!
Since blenders have become all the rave, a multitude of recipes have become available, most of them featuring a healthy dose of greens.
Here are a few of my holiday cocktail favourites, which I tend to consume sans alcohol, but are really intended to contain a bit of holiday spirit:
In all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, one must remember to have fun!
