All in all, our holiday meal is healthy at the bone. It is all the extras we add that mess it up. I do my green beans in balsamic vinegar with some slivered almonds. I also have a great carrot soup that is so nice and different. Pumpkin is great for us, so are cranberries. Just find ways to use them without the crust and sugar. Don't let the holiday stress you out. Have a plan, and have some fun.
