It’s the holiday season, but that doesn’t mean you have to forego your healthy lifestyle. Sure, we’re in the spirit to indulge, but by making just a few quick ingredient swaps to your favorite recipes, you can significantly cut calories, fat, sugar, or sodium without ever tasting the difference. Now that’s something to celebrate!
If you aren’t sure where to start, we have compiled a list of simple changes to apply to your favorite holiday dishes that will make healthy eating choices simple this holiday season. Use whole grains, lighter entrées, and low-fat foods to dramatically reduce the calorie count of your holiday meal.
You don’t have to miss out on anything from your favorite holiday yams to stuffing with sausage. Once a year, sweet treats, such as fruitcake, can even remain on the menu as long as you opt for a lighter version. Less sugar, fat, and sodium in your diet this holiday season will make for a healthier new year.
