Cooking Healthy for the Holidays

— Written By N.C. Cooperative Extension

Healthy Holiday Cooking
“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.
