Okay, if you had told me a few years ago I would be contemplating using almond flour and cauliflower in place of traditional foods for healthy holiday side dishes I would have called you crazy. Shhhh, don’t tell my family, but I am planning our holiday meals using some of these healthy recipes.

 

healthy holiday side dishes your family will love

 

Holiday meals are so much fun with family coming from out of town, or even just across town. Now that we are living in NC again closer to most of our family, our holiday meals will be shared with a variety of family members. Some healthy, some who aren’t concerned about eating healthy.

It’s important to me to serve food everyone will like, even the healthy dishes.

I asked some friends for their best healthy holiday side dishes to share with you. They didn’t disappoint. Any and all of these recipes are great for healthy side dishes for turkey, ham or whatever you choose.

Whether you choose to use some or all healthy holiday side dishes for your holiday meal, we have your back.

Go ahead, scroll through the holiday recipes below and plan your side dishes today!
