Seasons Greetings Friends!
The holidays tend to give us ALL THE FEELS, which reminds us how lucky we are to have you here on this journey with us! We appreciate your support in our goal to share Paleo with as many people as possible, in the hopes that it can change someone’s life in the way that it has changed ours. We’re so grateful every time you share our recipes and say hello on social media. We consider you all friends, so we are bringing you to the table and sharing all about our holiday celebrations!
PS: NEW Paleo discount codes at the bottom, so don’t miss them!
In our family, the celebratory foods of the holiday actually start the week before when we give friends, family, and co-workers treats as their holiday gifts. Our homemade Marshmallows are always a popular hit, and making them with the boys is the best part! This year we also made Chewy Ginger Molasses Cookies and Peppermint Fudge for the goodies bags. I love seeing people’s joy when homemade treats are delivered to their desks!
Then… this happened. Over the course of two days our Christmas tree dropped almost all of it’s needles. The best part? The boys were GREAT about it! Cole moved his little Christmas tree from his room to the living room for the whole family to use, and he even removed some of his decorations so that other family members could each put a couple of their favorite ornaments on it. The boys’ positive attitude about this whole this thing will be a memory I’ll NEVER FORGET, it’s a reminder of what this season is about to us: kindness, togetherness, and joy!
We’ve got a lot of family traditions that we JUST LOVE! On Christmas Eve we’ll either have a simple, comforting one-pot meal like Juicy Pot Roast, or we’ll order in gluten-free pizza. We’ll read Christmas books together, like Who Will Help Santa this Year? and then the boys will put out some healthier treats for Santa, but even more exciting, they love leaving carrots for the reindeer!
On Christmas morning our family (even the non-Paleo ones) enjoys our long-standing tradition of Monkey Bread to snack on during Christmas morning while we open gifts. We already shared ALL OF OUR HOLIDAY EATS in this week’s What We Ate Wednesday, and have outlined our whole meal plan, including our EPIC Christmas brunch —> HERE!
For Christmas dinner we’ll have leftovers or recreate some of our favorite take-out, like Mongolian Beef and Thai-Fried Rice from Real Life Paleo. Our family loves to stay in and snuggle while playing with new toys. The best part is spending a relaxing day together – it’s one of my favorite days of the year!
From our family, to yours – from now to New Years and all of 2016 we hope your days are filled with good food, laughter, fun and lots of joy!
