Diet is no longer one size fits all either—with the rates of diabetes, food allergies, food sensitivities and more, along with friends and family members who are vegan, I’ve learned to offer something for everyone.
I’ve also watched hosts get totally bogged down in the prep and spoil their own holidays never coming up for air. Keep in mind that your guests are coming to nourish their hearts as much as they are coming to nourish their bellies!
So these recipes are from friends and partners, some I’ve known for almost a decade. You will impress your guests, keep it fresh and also have fun. What could be better!
This Simple Grapefruit Avocado Salad is from my amazing friend, Lisa, at 100 Days of Real Food. Enjoy!
- 1 5 ounce bag/box spinach
- 1 grapefruit – peeled and diced
- 1 avocado – peeled and diced
- 1/3 cup red onion – diced
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 2 tbsp orange juice – fresh squeezed
- 1 tsp honey
- salt – to taste
- pepper – to taste
Toss together the spinach, grapefruit, avocado and red onion.
In a small jar or another container with a tight-fitting lid, shake together the oil, juice, honey, salt and pepper just until the dressing is emulsified. Toss with the salad mix until evenly coated and serve.
