Posted on October 25, 2012
The holiday season can be a challenging time of year to make healthy choices. But healthy holiday eating is possible. The experts at Travaasa offer some tips to help guide you through healthy holiday eating options.
Bake a lighter pumpkin pie.
Pumpkin is rich in nutrients, such as vitamins A and C, beta-carotene and potassium. Enjoy this classic holiday dessert without the waistline worries by giving your ingredient list a switcheroo. Swap in evaporated skim milk for whole milk, egg whites in place of whole eggs and a low-fat graham cracker crust instead of traditional pie crust. Top your treat with fat-free whipped cream and savor every delicious bite.
