Don’t pack on the pounds on this Christmas! By eating rye, which is known for its low GI content, meaning you feel fuller for longer, you will be inclined to eat less and thus be less likely to put on the dreaded Christmas weight. In addition, rye is also high in fiber and nutrients, such as manganese, phosphorus, copper, pantothenic acid and magnesium. Being a delicious and healthy alternative, what’s not to love about rye?

 

Christmas Cookies: Christmas would not be complete without at least a dozen Christmas cookies and a few to leave out for Santa. Check out Heidi Swanson’s recipe for Swedish cut-out cookies which call for rye flour. They are a slightly different take on the traditional Christmas cookie that we’re used to, but even more delicious!

Holiday Cake: We all know how 99.9% (our personal percentage estimate!) of people can’t stand Christmas fruit cake – no one can dispute this fact! So, why torture your guests with this most hated holiday specialty? Why not offer them a versatile alternative which can be eaten as a savory or sweet? We promise this Malted Chocolate Rye Cake from Good food stories will be a huge favorite this holiday for you! Have a look at the recipe here: Malted Chocolate Rye Cake!

Rye Whiskey Drinks: When it’s cold outside, there is nothing better than to partake in a rye whiskey in front of the fireplace that will warm you from the inside out. In fact, why not try making a Hot Toddy with Rye Whiskey! We found a great recipe at Liquor.com that apparently will “rock your face off!” … with your favorite Rye Whiskey added and a cocktail title like that, how can you go wrong with this drink! You can find the “Rock Your Face Off Hot Toddy” drink recipe here: Hot Toddy from Liquor.com Recipe

Cheers to Rye and the holiday season!
