Below are a couple healthier choice, lower calorie holiday recipes for you to try.

i don't have any to share. i'm trying to think if we make anything that fits that description. Nuts are always around but w the way ppl eat them, I doubt that is healthy.

We have plenty of veggies for the big meal, but I think u meant nibble food and snacks.

i think my chex mix may be the closest to healthy thing i make.......


I don't know where the sunbeams end and the starlights begin; it's all a mystery.

i love this! thanks for sharing Roma!

DH was told by some1 who is diabetic I think that she gets a dessert ice cream sandwich fix when she puts cool whip btwn two graham cracker sheets and freezes them. I'm not that big on graham crackers but he's been wanting to try it so we will prob have cool whip around for the holidays.

I'm gonna try your parfait.

Quoting romalove:

I always offer frozen berries with Cool Whip as a dessert on holidays as an alternative to the typical high calorie fare.  It's hard to watch your diet when everyone else has something good to eat.  I layer into champagne glasses frozen mixed berries, and alternate with Cool Whip to make low calorie healthy parfait.

Everything in moderation. I do not really have low fat treats but I do watch my intake.

I don't do low fat, I just try to monitor how much I eat.

I splurge and go all out with holiday baking. I just try to eat very small portions of whatever it is :)

I like the WW pumpkin spice cake: 1 can pumplin (not the pie mix) and 1 box spice cake mix.  (Some add water, I never have and it turns out a lot like gingerbread.)

I don't have any low fat recipes. My family has never made any low fat foods during holidays.
