Healthy Holiday Cooking

Return to Health and Wellness

“Healthy” and “holiday” don’t usually find themselves in the same sentence, especially when it comes to food. But that doesn’t have to be the case. Holiday celebrations and traditions are an important part of life to be enjoyed. You can learn to reduce the large amounts of fats and sugar usually found in holiday recipes and focus more on the “star” ingredients — fruits and vegetables. With a little planning and a few simple changes, it is possible to enjoy great tasting holiday foods while still maintaining a healthy lifestyle and avoiding the weight gain often associated with the holiday season.
