by Anjolie Flores | Nov 30, 2022 | Diet, Healthy Living, Recipes

Around the holidays it can be so easy to just ‘cheat’ on eating healthy. But! Then you end up paying the price later with added weight, inflammation, and feeling ‘icky’ overall. However, there are options to still enjoy eating treats without totally forgoing your health goals. The first 5 are from my own archive and the last five are from some of my favorite other healthy recipe blogs. I hope you will love these cookies for years to come! So, without further ado, here are my Top 10 Healthy Christmas Cookie Recipes:

Number 1: Chocolate Peppermint Cookies

Up first is one of my personal favorites, Chocolate Peppermint Cookies! These cookies are a better alternative than other cookie options because they are gluten-free, low-sugar, and vegan.

Number 2: Sunbutter Cookies

Healthy Christmas Cookie Recipes

I have been using the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for the last few weeks and It has helped me so much. I struggle quite a bit with work related stress. When I'm in the chamber I feel completely relaxed, so much so that I can bring my laptop inside and work without stressing. The calmness I feel in the chamber lasts for the remainder of the day as well. I have found too, the more consistent I am with sessions throughout the week the better I feel. The office staff seems well trained in running the tanks too, so I feel safe. I see Dr. Kilcup as well for my brain and gut health. Until now, I don't think I've ever known what "normal" or "healthy" feels like. Thank you all, sincerely!

Darrell is highly knowledgeable and really gets to the root of the problem. Unlike a lot of doctors, Darrell doesn't just throw prescriptions at issues. He will test and test - digging for the cause and then working on fixing the issue. He and his staff are professional, courteous, and a joy to be around.

I am very grateful to have found Dr. Kilcup and be his patient for the last couple of years. He has helped me restore my health back after being exposed to toxic mold for years. He helped identify and treat all of my symptoms I was experiencing and address the root problem. I was looking for the right person who could help me heal with natural therapies and supplements and Dr. Kilcup was the perfect fit. Every appointment and session was necessary and one step towards all the progress I made. Dr. Kilcup is a great functional medicine doctor who was also an advocate for my own health and well-being. I never received any care or attention to detail from other Doctors in past experiences except with Dr. Kilcup. Anyone who is seeking a holistic path towards healing or improving their own health should see him.
