Recipes to Make your Holidays Healthier

Whether it’s sitting around the family dinner table or munching on endless holiday party snacks, the holidays mean food. And lots of it! While we don’t want to sacrifice all goodies during the holidays, it can be hard to keep from overdoing it.

If you’re hosting a party or a meal, or attending one, try one of these recipes to help you keep the holidays healthy.

This turkey recipe adds loads of flavor by roasting on a bed of vegetables, fruit and herbs.

No holiday dinner is complete without the tasty sides. These Stuffing Muffins from Skinny Taste are delicious but baked in a muffin tin for easy portion control.  And this Lightened-Up Green Bean Casserole is a must-have for your holiday table.

This Goat Cheese Queso Dip can be easily made in advance making it perfect to take to any gathering and still stay on track with your diet!  Serve with fresh vegetables or veggie chips for an appetizer sure to please.

And let’s not forget about dessert!  Food Network has lightened-up this Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake by replacing most of the cream cheese with cottage cheese and cocoa powder.  With a hint of melted chocolate, you will love indulging in this rich, velvety dessert.

The holidays should be a time of making memories with friends and family and not a time to stress about what you put on your plate.  Even if you’ve been on a healthy eating plan all year, you can still enjoy this season by indulging in a few things you only get to have once a year and by making healthy ingredient swaps when you can.  Season’s Eatings!
