      This the season to be jolly!  Holidays are my favorite time of the year and I usually celebrate it by gifting edible treats to my loved ones.  It’s a beautiful way to express your love, to show you care about their happiness and their health.  These work great as stocking stuffers, Secret Santa gift exchanges, holiday potlucks, and a healthy garnish over salads and entrees for your holiday dinners.  Protein rich, Paleo, vegan, and low carb, they satisfy everyone’s craving for that sweet something that matches their holiday spirit!
