Spring holidays are here and sometimes we need a little something special when we gather with friends and family. Here are a few traditional recipes that I have doctored into lighter fare for you to enjoy as you celebrate Easter and Passover. Feel free to enjoy these foods but remember to limit your portions and journal them as indicated for each recipe.
In anticipation of Easter, it would be a good idea to get a little extra exercise and/or bank a few calories by eating less throughout the week prior to the holiday. If you plan ahead and exercise portion control, your won't skip a beat on your diet as you enjoy the holidays with friends and family.
Honey Wheat Buttermilk Bread or Rolls
I like to use my bread machine to make the dough and let it rise once--then I break it into rolls and let it rise overnight in my refrigerator. Then, when you are ready on Easter day, just take it out and bake! They are great right out of the oven.
