1. Moscow Mule mocktails

It wouldn’t be the holidays without some tasty libations to kick things off. Say “cheers” with these Moscow Mule mocktails and toast to good health.

2. Spinach pomegranate salad

Pomegranates are in season, and their stunning red seeds (also called “arils”) add a festive pop of color to any dish. Serve this spinach pomegranate salad for a fresh start to your holiday dinner.

3. Zucchini latkes

Latkes, also known as potato pancakes, are a Jewish food traditionally cooked on Hanukkah. These zucchini latkes are an amped-up version of the classic recipe, providing an extra boost of vitamins and minerals including potassium, folate, and Vitamin C.

4. The new meatloaf

Meatloaf is the comfort food. It’s simple, hearty, and a perfect centerpiece for your holiday spread. Try this meatloaf recipe that even veggie-lovers can enjoy, which is chock-full of mushrooms, zucchini, bell pepper, and tomato. You can also make this recipe vegetarian with soy crumbles, giving a new definition to the word “meatloaf.”   

5. Simple apple crisp

Apple crisp is the best of both worlds: It’s a yummy dessert and a great way to fit in some extra fruit, nuts, and whole grains at a time of year when these more nutritious foods may be a little lacking. For a sweet ending to your holiday meal, skip the refined sugar and bake this simple apple crisp, made with only a few spoonfuls of raw honey and maple syrup.
