Wait . . . a Nutritious Christmas Dinner Table?!

As eggnog makes its appearance onto grocery shelves and cinnamon settles in for the long haul of winter, the holiday topic of sustenance and libations are near the forefront of every conversation. Long standing traditions and authentic recipes are discussed while standing in front of a stove. Sauces simmer, cookies bake, and the aroma of the holidays permeates the olfactory senses.

Meanwhile, beliefs hold that diets go out the window and nutrition hibernates during the month of December. Luckily, ACCFamily wants to see you and your family embrace the knowledge that holiday meals can INCLUDE nutritious options that keep in tradition of favorite foods.

Take the examples of yams, cranberries, pomegranates, lentils, and cocoa. Each of these items contain helpful benefits to your help and can be added in a variety of ways to your holiday meals. Check out the article over at cookinglight.com to see the specific benefits and possible uses in meals.
