I thought I would share some of my favorite holiday recipes!
2 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup sliced almonds (or pecans, walnuts, peanuts)
1/2 cup unsweetened flaked coconut
2 tbsp maple syrup (or honey)
1-2 tbsp canola oil
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Chicken Noodle Soup
We have soup and salad every Christmas Eve. A nice way to keep it light!
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp pepper
3 carrots, diced
3 celery stalks, diced
2 small zucchini, diced
2 small yellow squash, diced
9 cups water
1 cup skim milk (10 cups of liquid, you can put in less water and more milk if you wish)
10-12 low sodium crushed chicken bouillon cubes
4 chicken breasts (cooked and diced)
1 bag whole wheat eggs noodles
1/2 bag frozen peas
In a large pot, saute celery and carrots in cooking spray until tender. Add zucchini and squash for the last few minutes as they will take less time to cook than the other vegetables. Add water, milk, bouillon, and cooked chicken and bring to a boil. Add egg noodles and peas and cook until noodles are just tender (they will continue to cook as they sit in the hot liquid so be careful they don’t get mushy). Leftovers are great the next day!
