healthydecThe Gluten-Free Menu Swap continues with more Gluten-Free, Healthy Holidays. This week, it’s Healthy Holiday Drinks!

Drinking at holiday parties can create digestive problems for some of us. The hydration is good, but if you’re adding lots of sugar and alcohol, you may end up with some problems: inflammation, indigestion, diarrhea, and unwanted weight gain. 🙁

But there’s no need to abstain from all holiday drinks. I found some gluten-free drink recipes with healthy, superfood ingredients, like antibacterial and antiviral herbs and spices, vitamin-rich juices, vegan and paleo ingredients, etc. Warm or cold, alcohol or not, these festive drinks are sure to keep us happy and healthy through the holidays.
