7 Healthy Substitutes for Your Favorite Holiday Dishes

The holidays have a way of entangling festivities with not-so-healthy food options, which can make overdoing it all too easy (we see you, cheesy potatoes and pecan pie). If you’re making gains on your weight loss journey, you don’t have to let one day throw you off track (and don’t worry, if you do overeat, it’s OK — it happens. Here’s how to bounce back). 

 

If there are some foods you can’t do without — like those cheesy potatoes, for instance — just go with a smaller portion. Dedicate 75% or your plate for non-starchy vegetables, lean protein and other foods that you’ll feel good about, and give the last 25% to the ones that make the holidays feel complete. It’s all about balance! 

 

To inspire you, here are healthy substitutes to seven common calorie-dense holiday foods. Make these swaps, and you’ll be well on your way to enjoying a healthy holiday meal. Enjoy!
