Health Tip: Host a Healthier Holiday Meal

December 23, 2015

(HealthDay News) — If you’re hosting a meal this holiday season, do your guests a favor and make it a heart-healthier one.

The Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions recommends:

  • Start with healthy appetizers, such as whole-grain crackers, cut vegetables, hummus, low-fat dressings or unsalted nuts.
  • Cut or eliminate salt from your recipes, flavoring with other seasonings instead. Make your own gravy, using low-sodium broth.
  • Make mashed potatoes with low-sodium chicken broth, roasted garlic and fat-free evaporated milk.
  • Use whole-wheat bread crumbs, onions and celery, dried fruit and less butter for healthier stuffing.
  • Bake your own desserts to avoid trans fats.
