Holiday Snacking Without (too much of) the Guilt

Dilemma: should you eat the pig-in-a-blanket or the mini-quiche?

Answer: probably the mini-quiche--but not the whole tray!

If you're going to let yourself give in to a few holiday food hankerings this year, Real Simple Magazine has some helpful tips on how to choose the lesser of two evils (or the greater of two goods!) from the usual party spread.  Things to keep in mind: steer clear of processed foods, eat in moderation, and eat a variety of foods--especially those colorful vegetables--to get the most from your holiday celebrations without compromising your health.

Alternatively, why wait for an invitation to enjoy seasonal favorites?  The library has a large selection of health-conscious cookbooks to inspire your own holiday menus.
