Delicious EBS recipes for the festive season

Hello everyone!

The season is festive and I have decided to cheer you up with some wonderful recipes which are delicious, gut, and low inflammation friendly too! I have created over 150 recipes now, and I have curated a little selection for you to enjoy during the holidays.

Moroccan spiced coffee: my Moroccan spiced coffee is amazing as it contains cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and clove. These are warming spices that have incredible anti-inflammatory properties, they help stabilize your blood sugar levels and offset some of the negative effects of caffeine. Watch my YouTube video, it is so easy to make and perfect for this season!
Wild salmon spread: Perfect as a dip with crudites such as carrot, celery, or fennel sticks. Wild salmon is packed with anti-inflammatory omega-3 acids, and this recipe is so easy to make.
My guacamole would work perfectly with the salmon spread for festive nibbles. You can also serve it on its own with crudites. This guacamole contains no raw onions which can be hard to digest sometimes so I hope you all enjoy it!
Roasted carrots and parsnips with cumin seeds: this great source of healthy carbohydrates makes a great side for your Christmas dinner or any meal! It is easy to make, you can use any oil you like or goose fat.
Roasted butternut squash soup: A classic soup that is dairy-free yet so rich and satisfying. The perfect winter warmer!
Italian chicken salad: This could be perfect for a nice salad on the 26th of December with turkey leftovers
Caramelized Apple and cinnamon crumble: I love this recipe with a side of coconut yogurt. It is delicious and uses simple ingredients. Apple and cinnamon are always a winning combo!
2 ingredient dark chocolate mousse pot: These little chocolate bombs are so easy to make, delicious and so simple. You can use nice glasses for individual portions, and garnish them with nuts, berries, or cacao nibs.
Paleo energy bars: Let me warn you, these are totally addictive! You can cut them in small squares, and they make a wonderful and absolutely delicious alternative to chocolates. They keep very well in the fridge and freeze well too, so you can save half for later if you wish to do so.
Mandarin and almond cake: Mandarins and oranges are in season, so make sure to try this delicious and very popular recipe! It is incredibly light and uses very few ingredients, without any added fat either!
Sea salt and chocolate brownies: Absolutely decadent but still ok by my book! Many of you find them tastier than regular brownies, so if you haven’t made them, go for it!
Coconut and chocolate macaroons: I created this recipe for Easter and these mouthfuls of deliciousness work perfectly for the Christmas season too!
Chocolate fudge cake: This is one of my latest creations! My children love it so much that I keep remaking it for them. This recipe is so rich yet dairy-free, gluten-free, grain-free, and nut-free!
Brussel sprout, chicken, and bacon skillet: This is a great, easy, and very tasty dish to serve on a cold winter’s day. You can use chicken or turkey leftovers to prepare it!
Sweet potatoes with rosemary and sage: This delicious recipe is an amazing side dish option and a great source of good carbs.
Roast Christmas chicken: Enjoy this amazing Christmas classic alternative for turkey without worrying that it will turn out dry!
Brussels sprouts with pancetta and sage: This dish will make a great side and is easy and quick to prepare. I absolutely love to make it around this time of the year!
Chocolate soft cake: This beauty is fluffy, light, and not very sweet. Perfect chocolate cake alternative!
