Holiday eating tips — the rush has begun, read them caerfully

Keep in mind I’ll be posting my 12 Days of No-salt, No-fat, No-sugar Christmas recipes as we get closer to the big day Dec. 25.

The rush of articles and blog posts about how to eat healthy around the year-end holidays already has begun, I’m getting tons of advice in various feeds I follow. But most of it is not worth the time to read, really. Tips like eat smaller portions make me want to stuff the writer’s face into a bowl of high-salt salsa.

Getting ready for holiday cooking? Check back here often for no-salt, no-sugar, no-fat recipes.

That goofy tip is in this article I found in the Harlan Daily Enterprise, which I discovered is in Kentucky. But there are some others you might find useful, such as:

• Gradually reduce the amount of salt used in cooking.

• Cut the amount of salt in recipes by half.

• Rinse canned vegetables before using or choose low-salt versions.

• Replace solid fats such as butter, lard, stick margarine, and shortening with oils when you are cooking.

• Replace half of the fat or oil in recipes with unsweetened applesauce.

• Use cooking spray in place of oil when cooking.

Take a look and see if you find others. And keep in mind I’ll be posting my 12 Days of No-salt, No-fat, No-sugar Christmas recipes as we get closer to the big day Dec. 25. You can read last year’s list in the meantime to help you start your meal planning.
