- Question from Treina: Where can I find holiday classic recipes with healthy substitutions — that taste good?
Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D.
Certainly my website and my blog are filled with recipes that are beautiful, taste good, and filled with healthy ingredients. And they are all family-approved and tested before going up. Each family's traditional recipes are going to be unique to them, so it's difficult to make a blanket statement, but that's a good place to start. Just for color, you can take your typical recipes and add a touch of red or green for holiday color.
Along that same thing, you can take any recipe that's traditional to your way of celebrating the holiday and garnish it with something festive that's red or green: tomatoes, red or green peppers, some kiwi fruit, or green melons or green apple slices, green pepper strips. Work on decorating the food or the tray it's being served on.
The Ask-the-Expert Online Conference called Nutrition Through the Holidays featured Diana Dyer, M.S., R.D. and Larissa Korde, M.D., M.P.H. answering your questions about what and how much to eat when holiday treats abound.
