Feed My Skin this Christmas with Wholesome Festive Recipes BY Jette Saunders
I LOVE Christmas - especially the eating part. For me, it's all about getting together with family and eating mountains of great food.
Now, I’m absolutely all for eating whatever you want during the festive season - but, if you feel so inclined to include some healthier, more skin loving options in your Christmas repertoire - look no further.
All of these recipes serve 4 as a side, simply multiply or divide to suit your numbers.
Merry Christmas! Love Jette x

For me and my family, we have always had seafood as part of our Christmas lunch. This prawn cocktail is mostly traditional, but with some slight adjustments to make it more skin lovin! Greek yoghurt contains probiotics as well as being a great source of protein, calcium and some B vitamins. Avocados are rich in healthy fats and many vitamins and minerals, and prawns are a great source of protein and many vitamins and minerals.

Honey, cumin and sesame roasted carrots
This is just my favourite way to eat carrots. Sesame seeds are a source of natural oils, antioxidants, protein and fibre and carrots are a great source of vitamin A, K and fibre. And most importantly, they are delicious!
