Parties and family gatherings are a staple of the holiday season, but with so many delicious options, it can make staying on track difficult. Don’t let the holidays weigh you down! Finding healthy alternatives to your favorite holiday dishes is easier than you might think.

“With two-thirds fewer calories and 85 percent less fat than original pumpkin pie, this crustless option is both a crowd pleaser and better for your health,” said registered dietitian, Nicole Morrissey, RD. “Baking your pies without crust is a great way to keep things health-conscious while still treating yourself to your favorite holiday food favorites.”
