We know what’s on your gift list: Easy holiday desserts that taste great, are good for you (OK, not as sugary or fattening as traditional seasonal treats), and make amazing gifts. You’re welcome!
There’s nothing better than spending a cold winter day inside by the fire, whipping up delicious holiday treats for your friends and family. But all those baked goods you indulge in during the month of December can take a toll on your waistline; according to recent research from Cornell University, the average weight gain for Americans during the Christmas-New Year’s season is 1.3 pounds. (What’s more, it took half the participants in the study five months to shed the weight they’d gained during the holidays.)
Hey guys! We are back with another post on how to cook the latest health foods that are new and exciting yet somewhat mysterious and unknown like Quinoa!

So we aren’t sure about you guys, but sometimes eating healthy can be kinda tricky. That is why this week’s DIY/How To post is about how to make Spaghetti Squash! You know that healthy Spaghetti pasta alternative everyone has been going crazy about!? Well we found a great How To on one of our favorite sites, Dashing Dish which is a website packed with healthy alternatives of classic comfort foods. To some, just trying new foods is a big step let alone actually making them. That is why we feel that the best and easiest way to get people interested in trying new healthy recipes is to show them how easy they actually are to make. After seeing it for yourself you’ll be saying, “Spaghetti Squash is a cinch!”
