It is not uncommon to have lots of sugary treats around the house this time of year. It is important to balance holiday treats and sweets with a well-balanced nutritious diet. Leafy greens and other foods high in fiber will help keep you feeling fuller long and help ward off cravings. Having the ingredients on hand to make a quick salad can be a great way to get ahead of cravings and to keep your holiday indulgences at a minimum. Try making one of these nutritious salads this holiday season.
Citrus Chicken Salad
Citrus Chicken Salad is the perfect blend of tangy and sweet with veggies and protein to boot! Sunflower seeds add a little crunch, and the low-fat shredded Mozzarella provides calcium.
Easy Pasta Salad
Easy Pasta Salad is a staple at my house. It’s the perfect side for almost any meal. The pasta and veggies give you fiber and the Italian dressing gives a great punch of flavor.
Apple and Pear Salad with Lemon Poppyseed Dressing
Add fruits that are in season, like apples and pears, to a green salad if you’re craving something sweet. The fruit and dried cranberries can be a healthy way to satisfy your sweet tooth.
