The holidays can seem like a whirlwind of cooking, shopping, hosting, singing (carolers, I know you’re out there), decorating, the list goes on and on and on. But when we take a break from our daily routines and dive into the holiday season, we can be tempted to break up with our healthy habits. These recipes give us a little extra assistance in the health department and remind us that healthy and holiday can, in fact, go together.

Trainers Karena Dawn and Katrina Scott of Tone It Up are all about balancing social and physical health. These six-holiday sides and bites are fun to make with the whole family but keep you on track with your health goals. If you love their approach to staying healthy and happy, check out their new wellness app, Studio Tone It Up, to make your daily fitness routine a family-and-friends affair.

A doughnut that’s actually full of protein and healthy fats? Frosting made of yogurt, maple, and honey? What is this, Christmas? This doughnut packs in the good stuff, a.k.a. protein powder, almond meal, pumpkin purée, and egg whites.
We secretly wish we could put everything in a slow cooker. This recipe pretty much makes itself, allowing the ingredients to simmer for six to eight hours. With the sweet taste of pumpkin, carrots, cinnamon, nutmeg in every bite, you’re gonna want to make extra so you can have some leftovers all week.
