Holiday Makeovers

Holiday meals don't have to be heavy and unhealthy – the trick is amping up the flavor in traditional dishes with seasonal produce, herbs and, of course, walnuts! There are simple substitutions that can make holiday recipes that little bit healthier. For example, when a recipe calls for cheese, use aged cheese. The stronger the flavor, the less you need! Or try substituting applesauce for some of the shortening in baked goods, which can reduce added fat while keeping them moist. Stealth nutrition can be added to festive dishes by incorporating raw or toasted walnuts – providing a delicious crunch and flavor that family and friends will enjoy.
