As much as we love taking in the flavors of the holidays, it's a gluttonous time of year.

Between work events, family dinners, ugly sweater parties, and the usual debauchery, there's a good chance you're feeling like you've overdone it a bit.

That doesn't mean you have to give up on the indulgence.

To help you get a taste of the holiday season in a healthier form, Elena Pezzo co-owner of Green Bar & Kitchen in Fort Lauderdale gave us a wholesome recipe for raw egg nog.
