The holidays are jammed packed with family, friends, and food. What a wonderful time of the year, right? Sure, but it can be challenging if you are trying to keep away those sneaky holiday pounds that creep up on us. Don’t sit out the party and miss all the great memory making gatherings just to avoid all the tempting treats. Try cutting back on the portion sizes. Choose wisely and skip the overfilled plate. Maybe bring a dish that offers all the flavor without the weight gain.
Finding healthy holiday recipes can be challenging. Sometimes it may turn out to be a twist on an all-time favorite. Use a low fat ingredient or cut back a bit on the amount used. Don’t pass over those new recipes during your search. One might just become your new family favorite. Luckily, most recipe sites provide nutrition values to help you find what fits your dietary needs.
Holy Moly Guacamole – Healthy Holiday Recipes
Not all guacamole is created equal. This healthy dip by Lisa Lillien is not missing anything but guilt. Holy Moly Guacamole is not your standard guac. You will find a longer list of ingredients, a couple you may not have thought of and lower fat versions.
One perk we really like is the ability to change it up. Want more pepper but less tomato? No problem make the changes. Comments on the site offer quite a few adaptations to make it your way. If you want the same old guacamole this may not be your go-to. Give it a try though, you never know!
