As part of the Christmas season, I want to share with you 12 eating clean and saving green Christmas ideas. They’ll include recipes, gift ideas and more and hope they’ll inspire you and keep you in the holiday spirit!
My family loves hot chocolate so I searched for clean recipes and found a yummy one from Southern Living. I also used this recipe to put together cute little Christmas gifts for the grandparents.
