How to make traditional holiday dishes healthier


1/2
Cranberry-pecan-quinoa_vert-1_pp-685x1024We get it: You want to make whatever holiday feast you’re cooking up a little healthier this year. But if you serve a tofurkey instead of a turkey, your Uncle Larry will either boycott your dinner or show up with a bird anyway.

Not to worry. “There are smart ways you can make traditional holiday dishes healthy where people don’t feel like they’re eating 1970s health food during the holidays,” says James Beard Award-winning chef Maria Hines. “You want it to be delicious and familiar.”

Or chasing meat-eating relatives from your holiday table…
