It can be really difficult to maintain a healthy diet during the holiday season. Between the craziness and all of the holiday treats, I find it extremely difficult to maintain a healthy diet. When the American Cancer Society asked me to share a healthier holiday recipe, I decided to find a great healthy holiday cookie recipe – one that was also vegan. I was vegan for health reasons earlier this year, and I learned that there are some very good substitutes for dairy products and eggs – especially for baking.
I decided to bake peanut butter cookies, and found this great healthy cookie recipe on Food.com.
So, how did they taste? Admittedly, I could tell there was no butter or egg in them. However, I liked them just as much as any other cookie I've made, and my husband and son agreed. While there still is sugar in them, they are much healthier without the egg and butter. Click over to the original recipe for the nutritional information.
Looking for other ways to keep a healthy kitchen? The American Cancer Society has some great suggestions for foods to keep in your pantry so you can throw together quick meals when you are busy. You should also eat lots of fruits and veggies to help reduce your cancer risk, and limit alcohol consumption to no more one drink per day for women or two drinks per day for men. You can find more healthy holiday recipes (and upload your own) on the More Birthdays Facebook page.
