Holiday Food

Planning Healthy Holiday Food is the key to special holidays. Most of us have favorite memories of our holiday meals where we learned special family stories and enjoyed holiday recipes handed down through the ages!

Each year, new family members were added, through birth or marriage, and others passed on to be remembered fondly. Our meals remained fairly constant and brought comfort! Food is like that. Grandma’s poppy seed bread, and Grammies home-made Chex party mix still bring warm memories, even though both of them are in heaven!

Many holiday meals revolve around heavy starchy foods. Take the Thanksgiving meal, turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, corn, rolls, jell-o, and pie, it is a carbohydrate feast.

We will try to keep the basics, and use healthy diet habits to lighten meals and give you some ideas to use your creativity. We will use Lifestyle Solutions to plan our holiday meals that are more healthy and balanced, but still out of this world! Who wants that awful Thanksgiving feeling of bloatedness!
