Holiday Season! : The Rothfeld Center’s Featured Paleo Recipes


The holidays are quickly approaching, and 2015 is right around the corner! One of the best things about the holidays is that no matter what you celebrate or where you celebrate, there will always be good food around. Food is important during the holidays because it brings people together, carries on traditions, and creates memories. We have found some traditional Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa dishes that are Paleo friendly, which are definitely worth a try (and guilt free!). We love to hear from our followers, so if you have any finger-licking, Paleo recipes up your sleeve this holiday season, please let us know!
