Holiday Treats on a Special Diets
This is the season for holiday meals, treats, and time spent together with family time spent together. This year especially, when our normal plans may have changed some, it was important to me to celebrate as we can and even create some new traditions.
Here at Nourishing Hope, we have readers from 115 countries who all celebrate the season differently.
So whether you are looking for Holiday recipes, or just fun gluten-free and dairy-free treats, here are some of my special diet favorites. In addition to gluten-free, many are grain-free to meet the needs of people on a Paleo, SCD or GAPS diet.
Many traditional holiday treats are loaded with sugar. For my family, I’ve created these recipes to be high in taste and fun, but lower in sugar.
Granted, these recipes do have some sugar; however, I always try to reduce the sugar content where possible. Especially with the fudge and the chocolate bark… you can use even darker chocolate to cut the sugar even more. And some can be adapted by using stevia, monk fruit, or a chocolate using one of these sweeteners.
