Christmas Baking without artificial dye (plant-based)

  • 2 min read
Baking is part of the holiday magic that no one should miss out on. The smell of cookies in the oven on a cold winter day can't be beat. The feeling you get when you take a bite of the familiar family recipe with loved ones all around you, is a moment that is good for the soul. While it may not be part of your "healthy diet" (whatever that means), it shouldn't be off limits. Be present and guilt-free as you enjoy this time.
Swapping artificial coloring with all natural coloring is an easy substitute. With these plant-based options, you can have fun baking and not feel like you are missing out at all. Nobody will say "these cookies are great but I really miss the flavor of Red 40."
