Holiday veggie trays are designed for Thanksgiving and Christmas celebrations. Both healthy and fresh, vegetable trays are perfect for any holiday party!
I had a big a-ha moment about holiday weight gain while sipping my second glass of champagne at Thanksgiving. For me, I think the biggest culprit to the holiday pounds is what eating happens before the meal: appetizers and alcohol! I was inspired to write this post about holiday veggie trays not only because of this realization, but the fact that the boys had consumed their body weight in crackers before Thanksgiving dinner. And I’m assuming the same might be true for Christmas dinner…. But we aren’t there yet!
Honestly, this post comes from a family friend [Mrs. L] that really inspired me to find the best holiday veggie trays AND act on making a few myself this holiday season. Mrs. L. also let me know that having this veggie platter with healthier dips before a heavy Thanksgiving meal helped her fill up on the good stuff before the main event. Which is a lot to be said as I sat there chugging champagne and spinach dip…
