Christmas only comes once a year, cherish the time you have with your family and friends.  Do not worry so much about what you eat on Christmas Day, but rather, pay attention to what you eat the rest of the year.  If you end up making one of my recipes, please share a photo with me on any of my social media links to the right of the blog.  I am always available on Instagram @ahealthier_fitterme.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Question: What is your favorite Christmas Day tradition? 
 We watch A Christmas Story every Christmas day, shortly after opening presents.


  1. What a great round up of amazing healthy recipes! I want to try those Paleo Banana Muffins!

    1. The muffins are so good, you would never know these are heathy ;o)

  2. I'll take one of everything, please. :) Everything looks so delicious! <3

  3. You sure covered everything! This is a great roundup of holiday recipes.

  4. What an awesome round up! I need to get my hands on that quinoa salad and those chocolates!

    1. Thanks Natalie! The quinoa salad is always a hit!

  5. Yum definitely going to be making eggnog :)

  6. Those are some great alternatives. I will probably still eat the food I shouldn't and eat too much but I am hoping since I have been losing weight during the holiday season I can stay on track after the holidays.

    1. I did eat some yummy traditional treats and don't regret a bite! Yes of course... these will be here to stay ;o)

  7. yum! i love eggnog, and your Banana Muffins look amazing!

  8. I am dying to try a coquito since you first blogged about it!

    1. lol.. it is so good Andi! I am glad you are curious enough to try it!

  9. i definitely just eat what i want during the holidays and deal with it for the new years after. :P probably need to start cutting down and eating healthier though.

  10. All of these look amazing! Thank you for collecting and sharing!

  11. I have been trying to live by that philosophy, eat well throughout the year and bring the house down on christmas but thats not to say i do not treat myself throughout the year.

  12. Yummy round-up! The one that jumped out at me was the eggnog... it's something that I so rarely have, but is such a fun holiday treat.. :) I usually can't make it through an entire carton of store-bought eggnog, but maybe doing the homemade version means that I can scale down to just a cup for so... just right for me. Xmas day traditions... don't have any really, besides opening presents. ;) Happy holidays!


  13. My boyfriends family are all quite healthy, so our Christmas dinner was actually not bad for me at all! I always love a good treat at Christmas too. I've had a lot of chocolate though... oops!
