Be­tween host­ing, shop­ping, plan­ning and car­ry­ing on with reg­u­lar life (oh yeah, that!), No­vem­ber and De­cem­ber are de­cid­edly the most hec­tic months of the year – but they don’t have to be. Long­time Clean Eat­ing in­sid­ers know that our mis­sion has al­ways been to make life eas­ier, and this is­sue takes the cake.

When plan­ning all the holiday meals you could pos­si­bly be host­ing be­tween Thanks­giv­ing and New Year’s, our recipe de­vel­op­ers thought of ev­ery­thing! In “The Per­fect 10 Holiday Spread,” we’re giv­ing you 7 un­be­liev­ably tasty and veg-heavy recipes that can be mixed and matched end­lessly to suit in­ti­mate din­ner par­ties, mas­sive Christ­mas blowouts and ev­ery­thing in be­tween. Got gluten-free or vege­tar­ian guests? These meals can be eas­ily adapted to ei­ther re­stric­tion so that ev­ery­one can par­take. We love giv­ing you op­tions!

But there’s so much more to plan this time of year. What about all the meals in be­tween gath­er­ings? Don’t let your good habits give way to Uber Eats this sea­son. With a lit­tle week­end batch cook­ing, you can pre­pare 5 recipes that trans­form into 15 through­out the week.

For no-guess­work meal plan­ning, we’ve got just the thing: “Your LessIs-More Meal Plan” on page 72 en­sures you eat clean all week on just 20 in­gre­di­ents (plus a few pantry ba­sics you likely al­ready have on hand), and best of all, this plan in­curs no waste at all, which means you’re eat­ing root-toshoot and ev­ery dol­lar you spend is used up. I’m so in love with this con­cept!

And we haven’t for­got­ten about holiday gifts! Our 6-page gift guide (p. 78) show­cases the best presents for ev­ery bud­get start­ing at $25 to up­wards of $100. Our ed­i­tors care­fully cu­rated ev­ery item, and if we wouldn’t love to re­ceive it as much as we’d en­joy gifting it, it didn’t make the cut.

Have a smooth and cel­e­bra­tory holiday, from your friends at Clean Eat­ing!
