The holidays are full of delicious foods that can fill a home with so many comforting smells. A wonderful time of year filled with friends, family, and our favorite love language, FOOD!

You may have recently discovered you have a food intolerance, or you're on a specific diet to heal your gut for a brief amount of time, and need to cut-out those high-inflammatory foods over the holiday season. These are foods containing gluten, dairy, or high in sugar. This might have you thinking you'll miss out on all the scrumptious foods, but that's not the case! There are loads of healthy twists on your holiday favorites so you don't have to sacrifice nostalgic tradition. We have a list of a few you can use, below.
