Healthy Holidays

With the holiday's coming I am on the hunt for some healthy alternatives to my favorite foods. Although I am sure I will taste some not-so-good-for-me foods while out and about, I make it a point to always cook healthy at home.

This blog has become the first place I go to hunt for recipes and I love adding to the list. For healthy holiday recipes I really like the suggestions from Delish and The Food Network.  They support my theory that healthy food can be flavorful as well.

For Thanksgiving Plans Cooking Light is a great resource.  It not only has great turkey recipes, but also provides a vegetarian version for those of you who prefer not to eat meat.  If you are eating the meat version this year remember to skip the skin to save some calories.

Lastly, what holiday season is complete without cookies?  Heart Healthy Online has 21 cookie recipes with healthy substitutions for you to try.

I'd love to hear what is happening in your kitchen as well -- leave a comment!

Also today ... check out this blog hop that I am participating in.

  1. Cooking light is a great magazine - once I learned how to make "light" pound cake I made it everyday for like a month ... probably not the best plan :) Stopping in to follow from the blog hop - hope you can visit and return the favor soon :) www.shaunanosler.blogspot.com/

    To answer your question about the Downy Unstopables, I don't believe it would be easy on sensitive skin.
