MyPlate Holiday Makeover

Friday - Nov 22, 2013

We all cherish time-honored holiday traditions; yet want to make healthier choices when celebrating the holiday season. Simple swaps or ingredient substitutions are a great way to revamp classic favorites - making them healthier without sacrificing the memories.

The MyPlate Holiday Makeover infographic provides ideas to help you make great choices. From baking to seasoning, this new resource can show you an easier way to make your meals healthier. Choose recipes that include unsweetened applesauce or mashed ripe bananas instead of butter. Boost the flavor of foods with spices and herbs such as cinnamon, cumin, or thyme and cut back the sugar and salt. Brighten up your meals with fruits and vegetables and go easy on the sauces, gravies, and cream.

Join us for our MyPlate's Holiday Makeover series to find quick and easy tips to get you through office parties, neighborhood potlucks, and family gatherings. Visit ChooseMyPlate.gov, MyPlate Facebook and @MyPlate on Twitter to find more suggestions and tips to help you get through the holidays.
