The holidays are just around the corner. You may already be preparing a menu with your family favorites. Many traditional dishes for turkey day are rich on taste, heavy on calories, and lacking in nutritional value. But making a few subtle changes can be a great improvement.

While traditional foods can bring a lot of comfort and happiness why not try to mix things up a bit this year by adding a few nutrient rich raw dishes? You can keep Thanksgiving familiar and fun while adding some healthier foods to the menu so that your whole family can reap the benefit of amazing raw foods.

Now might be a GREAT time to pick up the “Recipes for Raw Kids” book and start creating new and healthy family traditions that the whole family will love. This recipes book has many recipes that would be a tasty addition to any Holiday Feast too. Since Persimmons are in season why not make the delicious Persimmon Pudding with a scoop of Raw Ice Cream? The Mini Tomatoes with Pine Nut Cheese or the Mushroom Caps would make great appetizers. The Imitation Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Chickpea Crunchies, and Almond Milk could replace regular mashed potatoes, steamed peas, and Egg Nog. There are many ways to make this year’s celebration a whole lot healthier by adding delicious and nutritious raw food dishes! All you need to do is pick up the “Recipes for Raw Kids” un-cookbook and make a commitment to better health!
