The holiday season means one thing: food. So many holiday traditions revolve around meals, whether it’s a big turkey dinner with the whole family, an appetizer-heavy holiday party with coworkers, or latkes and sufganiyot during Hanukkah. Your family may have special meals that are made only for the holiday season, or perhaps you mix it up and go out to restaurants or host potlucks.
If you’re looking for holiday recipe inspiration with a healthy twist, you’ve come to the right place. We’ve rounded up some of our favorite holiday recipes to inspire your holiday cooking, baking, and relaxing, all made with the versatile, nutrient-packed Red Beet Crystals.
What makes beets such a must-have for all your holiday meal planning? They’re rich in a variety of vitamins and minerals, including vitamin C, potassium, and magnesium. We make our soluble crystals from the juice of freshly harvested organic beets for delicately sweet flavor that enhances your go-to everyday and special occasion recipes.
