With a handful of ingredients, you’ll have yourself a healthy and easy to make appetizer. Not to mention, they are cute and again, easy to make! These spinach balls include either frozen or fresh spinach, three eggs, grated cheese of your choice, Panko crumbs, parsley, coriander, or cilantro, and garlic salt. Mix the ingredients together, bake, and these simple finger-food appetizer won’t last long. To get your dose of organic liquid vitamins, add a splash into the mix and no one will notice it’s a healthy recipe.
Lamb is a great entree choice for a holiday meal and it’s also a fairly lean meat. This recipe is full of hearty flavors, including rosemary and garlic, and has a savory sauce made with blackberries, ginger, cinnamon, balsamic vinegar, and more olive oil. The sauce is the perfect vessel to add a few drops of organic liquid vitamins into. Is your mouth watering yet?
What’s a holiday meal without cranberry sauce? This recipe is easy and perfectly healthy. Cranberries are tart, so it can be tempting to add cups and cups of flour to sweeten them up, but instead, use maple syrup, honey, brown sugar, or agave. All you have to do is let the cranberries boil in some maple syrup, add a couple cinnamon sticks, pour in a few drops of our organic liquid vitamins, and wait until the sauce thickens a bit. This sauce will make the perfect addition to each bite of your roasted lamb.
Spiced Hot Fruit Bake
Full of warm, fruity flavors, this bake can be passed out as a dessert with a spoon of ice cream or even as a breakfast dish. Slice up some apples, pears, throw in some chunks of pineapple, and toss in a cup of cranberries, some coconut palm sugar for sweetness, cinnamon and nutmeg for a topping, and to garnish the dish toss on some walnuts or pecans. This fruit bake is a great way to start your day or to finish off a meal full of flavors and health benefits.
Even though this is the perfect time to indulge in a meal full of sugar and carbs, you don’t have to give up on your health goals. You can have your cake and eat it too with easy to use organic liquid vitamins. Just like hiding vegetables into your kid’s treats, you can sneak some healthy vitamins into your guests’ dishes.
