Fall Foods: Lighter Recipes for Some Favorites (cont.)
Fall Foods Members Are Thankful For
In honor of the season of Thanksgiving, we polled Weight Loss Clinic members about what fall foods they're are most grateful for. They mentioned the usual suspects: roast turkey and the rest of Thanksgiving dinner, apple cider, pecans, Christmas cookies, fudge, and casseroles.
But some notable fall fruits and vegetables got the nod, too, like apples, cranberries, sweet potatoes, and winter squash. And what do you know -- these are all super nutritious, fiber-packed foods! Of course, we do tend to embellish these naturally healthy items with questionable ingredients such as marshmallows, butter, brown sugar, etc. (but that's half the fun).
These are among the autumnal goodies that our members said they're thankful for:
No matter what fall foods you hold close to your heart, you can enjoy them as part of a healthy eating plan. Many recipes can be lightened up A LOT in terms of fat, sugar, and calories. And, of course, all should be eaten only when you are truly hungry, and in sensible serving sizes.
To show you how easy it is to lighten up your cold-weather favorites, here are a few fun fall recipes.
