Pull out your long sleeves and cardigans, sting up those lights, and start planning your healthy holiday foods! Good food brings people together throughout the season, but if you’re on a Paleo or AIP protocol you may be apprehensive about joining these events. The good news is that you can still enjoy healthy holiday foods while still supporting your health!

It can be hard to plan ahead, especially if your holiday schedule is jam-packed with activities. My team and I understand the struggle, which is why we want to make the holidays as easy as possible while following The Myers Way® protocol. 

The Myers Way® AIP & Paleo Holiday Recipes eBook is filled with 46 mouth-watering, seasonal recipes approved for all of The Myers Way® protocols.

The recipes feature all the fall flavors and spices from your childhood, only better. Not only are they simple to make, but they’re loaded with seasonal produce, grass-fed proteins, and gut-healing, thyroid-supporting nutrients.

Featured AIP Holiday Recipes

Whether you are hosting holiday meals or attending them, knowing you don’t have to come up with healthy holiday foods from scratch can be a major stress reliever.

The recipes you’ll find in The Myers Way® AIP & Paleo Holiday Recipes eBook are simple, easy, and best of all downloadable. If you’re great at planning ahead or finding yourself in a pinch, it’s the perfect portable resource to take with you wherever you go!

For a quick sneak peek, I’ve featured three recipes from my eBook that give you a taste for all the delicious foods and treats you can make now, and for holidays to come.

Peppermint Mocha Frappé

Nothing speaks the holiday language like the flavor of peppermint mocha. That said, coffee lovers should be careful. Many of today’s iced drinks are loaded with inflammatory sugars, processed ingredients, and artificial flavors.

This rich, creamy, gluten-free holiday recipe is one of the many healthy holiday foods I recommend. It’s packed with both The Myers Way® Mocha Latte Paleo Protein and  The Myers Way® Collagen Protein. The protein helps curb your appetite, and with the added gut, skin, and immune health benefits you get to have your treat and eat it too!

How To Make Pepper Mocha Frappé

You’ll need just a few ingredients for this delicious, nourishing festive frappé. The first is, of course, ice cubes. I recommend filtered water to help reduce the toxins commonly found in tap water.

For the liquids, you’ll need coconut milk and peppermint extract. Coconut milk is a great dairy-free alternative to cow’s milk and is rich in healthy fats, is a good source of potassium, and may help lower cholesterol. We’ll also be using whipped coconut cream in this recipe, which hosts similar benefits and is a healthier alternative to store-bought whipped cream.

I like to use peppermint extract over the syrup because it’s less processed, doesn’t contain additional ingredients, and has multiple uses. If you’re in the reintroduction stage of your healing journey, you can add crushed organic candy cane bits as a garnish. This also applies to the optional chocolate shavings. 

Lastly, you’ll also need both my The Myers Way® Mocha Latte Paleo Protein and my The Myers Way® Collagen Protein powder. These ingredients give this frappé recipe that extra nutritional boost you’ll need this holiday season. With gut-healing collagen proteins, this virtually tasteless, gluten-free addition mixes easily into this and many other recipes.

This recipe can be made in as little as five minutes. Here’s what you’ll do:

The first step is to place the ice cubes, The Myers Way® Peppermint Mocha Paleo Protein, The Myers Way® Collagen Protein, and coconut milk in a blender. Blend these together until the texture is smooth and creamy.

Grab your favorite glass and pour the blended ingredients in. Top with whipped coconut cream, crushed candy canes, and shaved chocolate, if you so choose.

That’s it! You can sit back and indulge in healthy holiday foods that support your gut health, skin health, and immune system. 


1 cup ice cubes

1 scoop The Myers Way® Mocha Latte Paleo Protein

1 scoop The Myers Way® Collagen Protein

1/2 cup coconut milk

1 tsp peppermint extract

Organic crushed candy cane (if in reintroduction

phase), whipped coconut cream, and shaved

chocolate (optional)

Creamy Ginger and Pear Soup 

When the weather outside is frightful, it’s nice to have something delightful to fill your stomach. This Ginger and Pear soup recipe is a scrumptious, gluten-free holiday recipe that is sure to please gatherings both great and small. 

This sweet and savory soup is part of my top healthy holiday foods to eat during the holiday season. Pears are considered powerhouse fruits. Rich in vitamins, fiber, and plant compounds, pears can help you better manage your weight, support healthy heart function, and also help fight oxidative stress in the body. 

Ginger is another great ingredient in this recipe. This sandy-colored root has been used for centuries in culinary dishes and herbal medicine. Not only is it famous for its immune-supporting properties, but it also aids in digestion. It can even help alleviate some types of aches and pains.

With additional gut-healing ingredients like onion, bone broth, and my signature Chicken Bone Broth Collagen, it’s the perfect guilt-free soup that will easily become your new favorite comfort food throughout the holidays and beyond!

How To Make Creamy Ginger and Pear Soup

Here’s how you make gluten-free pear and ginger soup. Start by chopping the onion and grating the ginger. Place them in a pan and saute them in coconut oil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Next, add your bone broth, sweet potatoes, and pears. You’ll want to let this simmer for about 25 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft. I find it hard to resist taking tastes because it starts to smell amazing!

Once the pears and potatoes are soft, add the cardamom. Remove from the pan and transfer everything into a blender. Blend slightly until you reach a thick consistency. Serve right away for best results. (This recipe serves 4.)

I usually pair this soup with a Coconut Apple Kale Salad, or my Gluten-Free Rosemary Crackers.


1 scoop Chicken Bone Broth Collagen

1 onion, chopped

1 tsp fresh grated ginger

2 Tbsp coconut oil

Sea salt and ground pepper, to taste

4 cups of bone broth

2 medium sweet potatoes, chopped

2 ripe pears, chopped

Dash of cardamom

Gingerbread Truffles

If you enjoyed decorating gingerbread houses when you were a kid, you’re going to love these gingerbread truffles. A perfect blend of spice and sweet, it’s one of the most satisfying desserts you’ll have at any party. 

They say good things come in small packages. I would have to agree, especially with this gluten-free holiday recipe. Perfectly rounded and lightly sweetened with dates, molasses, and cinnamon, you can indulge without feeling the bulge of bloat, gas, or indigestion later. That’s because my The Myers Way® Vanilla Bean Paleo Protein adds a boost of dairy-free, gluten-free nourishment, keeping you satisfied and preventing you from overeating.  

Speaking of cinnamon, did you know this spice contains properties that support a healthy inflammation response in the body? It also helps balance blood sugars and has immune-boosting effects. 

How To Make Gingerbread Truffles

This recipe is so simple to make and even easier to store. You can even let your kids help you if you like! Here’s how to make your very own gingerbread truffles. Take the pitted dates, ginger, cardamom, molasses, coconut butter, and The Myers Way® Vanilla Bean Paleo Protein, and mix it all up on the blender. Blend on high speed until you reach a smooth consistency. 

Once blended, scrape and roll out the mixture into 1-inch balls. Place in a glass dish with a lid, and keep refrigerated for up to a week! (This recipe makes approximately 15 truffles.)


12 dates, pitted

1 tsp ground ginger

2 tsp ground cinnamon

2 Tbsp coconut butter

3 Tbsp unsulphured molasses

1⁄2 cup The Myers Way® Vanilla Bean Paleo Protein

These three recipes are just a few of the many healthy holiday foods you can make to create the most memorable holiday moments. Not only are they delectable in flavor and presentation, but they’re also specially prepared to continue supporting you on your healing journey. 

Reverse Chronic Illnesses While Enjoying Healthy Holiday Foods

What you eat has a direct impact on your health. That’s why it’s important to be mindful over the holidays of all the things that could derail your progress. 

I know how challenging it can be to navigate the holiday menus and still work towards your health goals. The Myers Way® AIP & Paleo Holiday Recipes eBook is an invaluable resource that takes the guesswork out of what you should and shouldn’t eat, all without sacrificing the flavor and convenience of many traditional holiday dishes.

‘Tis the season to be giving. As you look back over the year or plan for the year ahead, you may be thinking of someone else who wants to improve their health. Give them the gift of health this holiday season by giving them our most popular gut and immune health products!
