Healthy Holiday Dishes | Delray Beach Apartments

Avoid gaining weight during the holiday season by preparing these healthy side dishes at our Delray Beach apartments.

#1 Salads

The Harvest Cobb Salad can be used as a side dish or a main course. It’s a very hearty salad with avocado, chicken, and bacon bits. It combines savory elements like sunflowers, eggs, and squash with sweet fruits like apple and raisins.  Persimmon and Pomegranate Salads are sweet, tangy, and full of seasonal ingredients.  The combination of colors makes a beautiful and elegant addition to your holiday meal. This Roasted Delicata Squash Kale Salad combines raw and roasted veggies with grains. The chickpeas pack the punch of protein you need for a filling salad.

#2 Soups

Parsnip Cumin Soup offers the perfect flavors of autumn. This vegan soup features pureed parsnips, carrots, cauliflower, celery, and cumin for a nourishing, immune boosting meal. There’ nothing more satisfying than a traditional potato soup.  The rich and creamy texture perfectly complements the crunch of bacon bits, cheese, and green onion. Curried Pumpkin Coconut Soup adds a little spice and depth of flavor that you can’t find in a traditional pumpkin soup or bisque. It’s also rich in Vitamin A, which can help you get through the flu season.

#3 Unique Veggie Dishes

Prepping Spinach Balls before your holiday meal makes an easy and healthy appetizer. Spinach, eggs, cheese, panko crumbs, and herbs are blended together and baked for a perfect bite-sized snack. Combine savory and tangy flavors by roasting Brussel sprouts and green apples together. Add apple cider, olive oil, salt, pepper, and thyme to maximize flavor! If you need a healthier alternative to a dessert pie, try this buttery cinnamon-sugar squash.  This dish is the perfect blend of savory and sweet.
