Stonyfield Tip of the Month: Healthy Holiday Recipes

December 20, 2012 01:19 PM
Cooking with yogurt is a great way to keep the calories of your holiday dishes in check.
Sticking to a healthy eating plan during the holidays can be tough—parties, family gatherings, and workplace break rooms offer a seemingly unlimited supply of calorie-laden goodies. While you can’t control everything that’s offered to you, you can do your part by providing a healthy option.
 
If you’re contributing food for a holiday event, bring something that you would feel good about eating. That doesn’t mean it has to be tasteless and boring. Healthy options can be delicious, too. One great trick to boost the healthfulness of your dish is to substitute high-fat ingredients (think butter, heavy cream, vegetable oil, mayonnaise) with a more nutritious alternative, such as yogurt.
 
Cooking with yogurt is a great way to keep the calories of your holiday dishes in check. Plus, yogurt adds nutritional goodness, a distinctive taste, creamy texture, and wonderful moistness to your cooking.
 
Below are two recipes to try this holiday season; each uses yogurt as a main ingredient. You’ll also notice the ingredient list provides a variety of options for you to choose from. This will allow you to personalize each dish for your particular taste preferences.
 
Have fun experimenting and Happy Holidays!
