As the New Year approaches, people you just gatta let go!! Don’t carry 2016 baggage into 2017…..

Sometimes when you have outgrown the situations in your life, and you’re not aware, or don’t have the courage to move on ~ life will move on you. You may have been told that your company is going in another direction. You knew it was coming and you didn’t prepare yourself. Now you are angry and feel you were wronged. You have to move on.

Your relationship of many years may have ended and you were devastated, confused and shocked. You’re in pain; feel disillusioned; full of despair. However, it’s time to move on.

Unlike the infamous fruit cake, you’ll want to have this. You can kick off the celebration with this festive treat  by combining citrus fruit, pineapple & kiwi for a colorful salad, & adding pomegranate seeds for an extra touch.

 

Ginger Angel Food Cake

This airy, light, heavenly dessert is flavored with fresh ginger & spiked with a lime-raspberry topping.

 

Pumpkin Cheescake

This pie favorite, is packed with all the pumpkin flavor, but with only a portion of the fat, by using reduced-fat cream cheese & greek yogurt.

 

Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake

Just the name makes you want to take a bite!  Reducing the amount of cream cheese & adding cocoa powder & melted chocolate…results in a silky smooth, rich, chocolaty dessert!  Yum! 😍

 

Lighter Chocolate Chip Cookies

A true, child favorite…lighter in fat, but not the taste! These chewy delights are still packed with delicious flavor, with whole-wheat pastry flour, added oats, & agave nectar, so you can indulge without the guilt! 🙂

 

Whole Grain Apple-Cranberry Stuffing

Ok, ok, I KNOW this isn’t exactly a dessert, but technically…it does have fruit 😉 Considering stuffing is an all time holiday favorite for a mass amount of families, I figured I should squeeze it in. You don’t mind right? 😉  Whole grain baguette is substituted for the traditional white bread , & topped off with apples, dried cranberries, ground cinnamon & sage. Dig in!

 

Mmm, Mmm! 😍 I don’t know about you, but I just may start my holiday tasting early! I do hope you found these recipes helpful….as always, feel free to comment.

I’ll be posting again tomorrow, Friday my usual day… with a final Christmas treat for you, before the holiday, so be sure to check back for it.”Toodles!” 😊
