Silk Soy Nog Cheesecake

Ah, cheesecake for the holidays. Great taste, great holiday tradition, and lots of calories. Guess again! This new version of an eggnog cheesecake is made with silk soy nog with about one quarter of the fat and calories. Combine that with a reduced fat crust and the result is a dessert that is still full of taste but lighter on the calories.

Sweet Scalloped Potatoes

Holiday meals are a wonderful tradition, but the calories add up fast. Backus Registered Dietitian Shannon Haynes shows how to make delicious and low-fat scalloped potatoes using a combination of red and Yukon Gold potatoes along with sweet potatoes which add a lot of vitamins to this dish. By using low-fat milk and low-fat cheddar cheese in the recipe, Shannon shows how to cut back on the calories.

Healthy Roasted Nuts

This recipe features a variety of nuts mixed with seasonings and baked to a golden brown. The result is a healthier snack or gift for our friends and families instead of the traditional cookies and sweets.

Cathy’s Pumpkin Bread

This modified recipe for pumpkin bread will help you watch the calories but still have great taste. The video contains good advice on how to make this happen as we wind down from all of the hefty holiday meals and start to plan ways to watch our weight in the new year.

Mango Salsa

Mango adds a healthful dose of beta-carotene to this refreshing salsa. Beta-carotene is a powerful antioxidant that helps stop free radical damage; it’s found in most orange-colored fruits and vegetables. Serve this colorful salsa with a vegetarian chili or baked tortilla chips. Enjoy!

Creamy Cruciferous Risotto

Cruciferous vegetables have powerful plant nutrients that greatly enhance our immune system! This high-fiber dish has many spices adding much flavor to this risotto.
