It is easy to overindulge on holiday meals and treats this time of year. The best part of the holiday season is enjoying festivities with family and friends. It is possible to enjoy the season while also serving delicious foods that support good health. Below are some simple, better-for-you holiday recipes that will leave your guests impressed and wanting more!

Mushroom-Stuffed Pork Tenderloin

Stuff a pork tenderloin with a savory mix of mushrooms and bacon and roast to perfection — no one will guess that it’s a healthy holiday main dish. See the recipe HERE.

Eggplant Ricotta Bites

Lightly breaded eggplant is sautéed instead of deep-fried, giving it crunch without excess oil. It is then topped with ricotta and tomatoes for an eggplant Parmesan-inspired appetizer with much less fat. See the recipe HERE.

Whole-Wheat Spaghetti with Swiss Chard and Pecorino Cheese

This meatless pasta dish gets lots of flavor from kalamata olives, tomatoes and sautéed greens. It makes an easy vegetarian main dish or accompaniment to meat, fish or chicken for the meat-lovers at your table. See the recipe HERE.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Pomegranate and Hazelnuts

Roasting Brussels sprouts brings out their nutty flavor. Adding pomegranate seeds, orange zest, and toasted hazelnuts makes for a perfectly festive side dish. See the recipe HERE.
