Healthy Holiday Recipes

Looking for some healthy holiday recipes that work with the Medshape Diet Plan?  Our magical kitchen elves have put together some fantastic tasting alternatives to traditional holiday fare:

Deviled Eggs

  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Mustard (yellow, or spicy brown, etc.)
  • Mayonnaise (Walden Farms)
  • Dill or sugar free sweet pickle relish
  • Chives, minced
  • Seasonings (salt, pepper, paprika, Spicy Seasoning Salt, etc.)

Peel the eggs and slice in half lengthwise; remove the yolks to a bowl. Combine the yolks with the remaining ingredients to taste and add enough mayonnaise to make them creamy; beat or whisk until smooth. Spoon or pipe the yolk mixture into the whites; sprinkle with paprika, Spicy Seasoning Salt and/or minced chives. An easy way to pipe the filling into the whites is to put the filling in a zipper bag, seal, then snip off one corner and squeeze into the whites.

Vanilla Peppermint Protein Shake

This healthy alternative to the original is simply delicious. And it’s low in carbs!

Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

So this healthy alternative to traditional mashed potatoes might sound a little different, but give it a try. It’s actually pretty tasty!

  • 1 Head of cauliflower
  • 1-2 tbs of chicken broth
  • A little dill
  • I can’t believe it’s not butter spray

Separate cauliflower into florets, cut each into smaller pieces and steam until very tender. Put into food processor and process until smooth and creamy adding a small amount of chicken broth as needed. 1-2 tbs should be enough. Add a tbs of dill to taste and spray each serving with I can’t believe it’s not butter spray. Do not freeze.
