It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Who else LOVES the holidays?! ❄🎄🎁 The music, the treats, the lights.....it just all feels so magical ✨
For most of us the holidays are a time when we treat ourselves to some delicious goodies that we normally wouldn't indulge in. Mashed potatoes, stuffing, and a nice big slice of grandma's pumpkin pie? Yes please! 😍
But if you are feeling sluggish from all those treats, we've got ya covered with some healthier versions of your favourites that will make you feel like you are indulging without the food hangover.
My mom makes snowballs every year for Christmas. I thought that everyone had these delicious morsels of joy in their lives but I was surprised to find out that a ton of people have never even heard of them!
Snowballs are a Canadian East Coast tradition that you won't want to miss out on. Check out our healthified version right here!
