With two weeks until Christmas, we're right in the midst of the holiday season and at Ultimate Bootcamp, we know it can be tough to keep your healthy eating habits on track. That's why we've enlisted the help of Stacy Schwartz, a nutritional health coach in Boston, to give us a few of her favorite healthy recipes for the season! Read Stacy's bio here. Enjoy!

Family and friends come together for the Holidays, and a house full of hungry guests can make it hard to please everyone. From a halibut entrĂ©e to a holiday ‘nog with a twist, check out these two delicious healthy holiday recipes.

Honey Macadamia Halibut

  • 1/4 cup macadamia nuts
  • 4-ounce halibut fillets (1-inch thick)

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • 1 tablespoons coconut oil

  • 3 tablespoons honey

  • Chop nuts, spread on a cookie sheet, and toast in the oven or in a toaster on 350 degrees until golden brown, about 5-7 minutes. Check every minute or two and stir or spin tray around to toast evenly.
  • Rinse fish and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Heat oil in a skillet.
  • Cook one side of fillet over medium heat for 4 minutes.
  • Flip each fillet and cook for 3 minutes on the other side.
  • While fish is in the pan, spread a layer of honey on each fillet and add a layer of nuts on top.
  • Flip over and cook for 2 minutes and add honey and nuts to the top side.
  • Flip again and cook 2 minutes.
  • Halibut is cooked when the meat is no longer translucent.
  • Remove from heat and serve.
  • (This dish goes great with steamed string beans).
