The holidays are a time to indulge, but everything you put on your plate can impact your health. Here are some healthy recipes to think about adding to your holiday spread this year.

A Twist on a Holiday Classic

Cranberry Cream Cheese Spread from Taste of Home

Take a holiday staple and switch it up from your usual cranberry sauce. Incorporate dried cranberries, dried apricots, and orange zest to add a tangy twist to a reduced-fat cream cheese base, which saves you some calories before dinner. Try it with multi-grain or whole wheat crackers for a low-carb option.

Trade-In Traditional Turkey

Herb-Roasted Turkey Breast from Food Network

For a smaller gathering, this recipe is a simple and delicious way to add flavor to your roast turkey. Since the recipe only calls for bone-in turkey breast you’ll also save time on thawing, cleaning, and carving your holiday meal. This health-conscious recipe also mixes sage and rosemary with olive oil instead of butter to cut fat intake.

Save Room for Dessert

Fresh Gingerbread Squares from CookingLight

This take on basic gingerbread packs a flavor punch without bursting your belt buckle. Ginger, cinnamon, molasses, and even stout beer come together for a fluffy yet satisfying treat that will bring the holiday desserts to a new level. Any beer leftover from prep pairs nicely with this recipe.

Happy holidays to you and yours from the ProHealth Family!
