The holiday season offers a great time to celebrate with friends and family. On the other hand, it’s a time when most people struggle with their diets. That’s why New Year’s resolutions for weight loss are so common and sadly, so often abandoned. If you can satisfy yourself with healthy holiday treats, you may be able to skip making a resolution for next year altogether. Instead of eating and serving fatty and sugary foods that only offer tight pants and empty calories, consider these healthy holiday treats.
Some people say that fruit is really nature’s candy. Prepared this way, fruit tastes better than candy. You can use all sorts of fruit, including strawberries, kiwi, and even orange slices.
To make the dip:
• Soften up an eight-ounce package of reduced fat cream cheese.
• Mix in 3/4 cup of coconut milk.
• Add a generous tablespoon of honey to the mix.
• Dip and enjoy!
Healthy Veggie Dip
Greek yogurt offers a much healthier alternative to sour cream. You can choose to use a packet of dip mix and just substitute the sour cream with Greek yogurt. If you’d prefer to control your ingredients, try adding a pinch of salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder to Greek yogurt. Be sure to buy the plain kind if you plan to dip veggies or salty snacks. You can also use this type of mix for a guilt-free topping for baked potatoes.
Quick One-Serving Apple Cobbler
This is a great and simple recipe to remember when leftover holiday treats are calling you to the fridge for a midnight snack. Simply put apple slices on a microwave plate, add a few dashes of cinnamon, and top it with a touch of butter or margarine. You can also coat your slices with spray oil.
Microwave this mixture for about two minutes in most microwaves, and you will have a naturally sweet dessert that tastes even better than apple pie filling and doesn’t have added sugar. To give this dessert that finished cobbler texture, sprinkle some granola over the top and enjoy!
