Meijer Has Tips for Healthier Holiday Meals

Easy Ways to Lighten up Your Meals While Keeping the Flavor

GRAND RAPIDS, MI -- (Marketwire) -- 11/27/12 -- The holidays are here. That means it's the season for family, friends and most of all, food. Are you trying to decide what to make, when to start prepping, how much to serve or how to make it a bit healthier?

"We want to make entertaining as easy as one, two, three," says Shari Steinbach, Registered Dietician and Healthy Living Advisor for Meijer. "Whether you're a first-time host who wants to serve the classics, a pro who wants to put a creative twist on a traditional dish or you want to lighten up your holiday meals but keep the flavor, Meijer is here to help."

There are many options for changing traditional holiday dishes. If you want a flavor kick in the turkey, add a nice herb rub or go with a citrus stuffing. Instead of a pumpkin pie, make pumpkin pie pops, served on a stick. Meijer's corporate chef and team of healthy living advisors have come up with great options.
