There’s no denying it… even if you have the best intentions and the most paleo-perfect holiday menu, you will likely eat too much on Thursday.
This is a little inspiration for a healthy, light meal for your post-holiday feast fest.

1/4 c. sunflower seeds
1/4 c. sliced almonds
1/4 c. pumpkin seeds
2 Tbsp. sesame seeds
1/4 c. dried cranberries
3 heirloom carrots, shredded
