Cranberry Applesauce Bread- Vegan and GlutenFree from HeatherChristo.com

I hope that you all had an absolutely wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday and nice long weekend. Our Thanksgiving was Chaotic and large and by the end of it I was completely stuffed silly and saturated in red wine. Gahhhhh!!!!

And then the rest of the weekend, the more I tried to reign in my gluttony the worse I faired! If you remember, the week before that I was in Mexico gorging on chips, guacamole and margaritas. The last two weeks culminated on Sunday with 9 hours of Christmas Cookie baking (and sampling) and a big huge bowl of my FAVORITE comfort food, Old Fashioned Spaghetti and Meatballs (recipe in Pure Delicious.)

So now I am ready to just DETOX. Like I am starting a cleanse Monday morning and I’m going to crush a three day juice cleanse starting Tuesday. I am going to insta-story and snap chat my progress- wish me luck. I am most definitely going to need it.

OMG, and while I am sipping on green juice trying to reverse the damage of the last two weeks, I’m going to start sharing all of the most delicious Christmas recipes!

I guess I have to detox to retox with more Christmas Cookies next week.

This Cranberry Applesauce Bread is a good way to just start rolling into the Holiday Season, don’t you think?! I love this bread which is amazing as breakfast, a snack or dessert. I love to make this for my kids and be able to cut off wedges (so easy!) for breakfast or pack a slice in their lunches.

I like to top it with just a dusting of powdered sugar, but you could also top with a glaze or even frosting! Enjoy!
