Holiday parties can be nerve-wracking on their own, but having to plan a menu of heart-healthy foods for the holidays can seem almost impossible. Coming up with healthy holiday recipes for the entrees and appetizers is usually pretty easy, but what about desserts? What can you serve that your guests haven’t already had at a half-dozen other parties?
What if I told you that you could serve healthy holiday dishes that were so chic that your guests would never know how simple they were – or that they each had a health benefit?
Give these healthy holiday recipes a try this holiday season and you’ll never have to put up with another fruitcake again. You can thank me later.

Jack-O-Lantern Sugar Face Scrub
You will need:
- 1 cup of raw sugar
- 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
- ¼ cup of pumpkin pie filling
In a small bowl, mix the raw sugar and cinnamon.
Then, add all of the pumpkin pie filling and continue to mix.
Once it’s completely mixed, apply this simple sugar scrub to your face, rubbing continuously for at least 1 minute (but not more than 2!)
Rinse your face with warm water, and look at that revived, clear complexion! For the best results, follow this DIY sugar face scrub with my favorite peel-off mask recipe on the next page.
