If you're looking for some fresh, clean dish options to include in your spread this holiday season, you're not alone! More and more of our patients at Barton Chiropractic Clinic are choosing to combine a healthy diet with chiropractic treatment in order to unlock hidden health benefits like better mobility, improved flexibility, restful sleep, peaceful mood, not to mention a cognitive boost.
Below are a few dishes that will keep your holiday season healthy.
Sweet Potato Lasagna
Sweet potatoes are a great substitute for starch-heavy bulk potatoes. Sweet potato lasagna will be a big hit with your vegan attendees, not to mention provide a healthy alternative to the normal Thanksgiving fare.
Kale, Fruit, and Nut Salad
Definitely include a salad at the table, and use kale in lieu of romaine for additional health benefits. Adding dried fruit and plenty of crunch (almonds, sunflower seeds, etc.) will diversify the flavor and give you additional healthy fats that will help your mind stay sharp.
Use Dark Chocolate
Try to be sensible when planning desserts and make sure you use dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate. Dark chocolate is believed to have nutritional value and serve has healthy fuel for the brain. Dark chocolate and all-natural peanut butter make an excellent combination.
