Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes with Rosemary
This first option is perfect if you are on a low-carb diet since you are using cauliflower to make mashed potatoes instead of carb-laden potatoes. These are simple to make by cooking your cauliflower, then mashing it up with a fork, or putting it into a food processor. You can then add in all your favorite seasonings, like salt and pepper, along with some rosemary mixed in.
Smoothie with Blueberries
Blueberries and other fruits like pomegranates and citrus fruits are ideal superfoods to enjoy during the winter. If you want a quick and easy breakfast before holiday shopping or on a particularly busy day, why not make a smoothie? This is a great way to use up these fruits and have more vitamins in your diet.
Herbed Butternut Squash
To use your butternut squash, there are many options available. A simple way is to make a side dish with cubed squash that is cooked. This also tastes great with some winter herbs, like rosemary and thyme, plus salt, pepper, olive oil, and a little garlic. It is simple and delicious.
Winter Kale Salad
Salads are perfect as a side dish for your holiday dinner, but can also be used for a light lunch. To pack in a bunch of superfoods at one time, make a kale salad with pomegranate seeds, cranberries, nuts, and add in a little quinoa for an added nutty flavor.
