Healthy Prep for the Holidays!

I cannot believe Christmas is just right around the corner!!! Crazy!!! I feel like this year went WAYYYY too fast!! Anyways.. this season is a season that people seem to fall off track with their nutrition.. they go for the cookies, rather than the healthier dishes and snacks.  I won’t lie, I am guilty of it too at times! But for the most part, I love cooking up some healthier versions of dishes so I do not feel guilty and bloated at the end of the day!

Today I went out and got some Brussel spouts to prepare a dish for our Christmas meal! If you have read any of my blog posts before, I am a HUGE fan of spice! So these bad boys are gonna be a little sweet and a little spicy!!
