The problem with the holidays isn’t usually copious amounts of weight gain. It’s the fact that most people never lose the excess pounds they put on over the holidays, but instead, continue to gradually put on weight year after year.
One way to achieve a healthy waistline is to swap out those high calorie, high fat dishes for options that are better for you and still just as tasty. H-E-B has easy holiday swaps that will help prevent sneaky weight gain this holiday season. Try these tips from your H-E-B Registered Dietitians
For mashed potatoes, swap Greek yogurt instead of butter and sour cream. Greek yogurt helps to provide the creamy texture we enjoy with higher protein, lower fat, and less calories overall. Swapping 1/4 cup of butter for 1/4 cup of H-E-B Plain Greek Yogurt can save you more than 300 calories and 20 grams of fat per serving.
Instead of green bean casserole opt for roasted brussel sprouts (or cauliflower) with chopped butternut squash and scallions. Drizzle with your favorite olive oil and toss with roasted pecans or almonds for an extra layer of flavor. Plus the vitamin C content of the squash can help boost the uptake of iron from the Brussels sprouts. Not to mention saving you over 200 calories per 1 cup serving.
Choose hummus and whole grain chips (or veggies) versus your favorite calorie laden dips and appetizers. Boost fiber, protein, and healthy fats while reducing calories, saturated fat and sodium.
Instead of frozen desserts use phyllo dough to prepare fresh baked fruit tarts. Sprinkle with cinnamon and cloves for added flavor without adding sugar. The fresh fruits will boost the fiber content of your desserts, as well as reduce added sugars. The swap from traditional pie crust to phyllo dough can save you nearly 300 calories per serving.
