Healthier Holiday Side Dishes

On one hand it,  seems a little early to be thinking about the holidays. On the other, I know the holiday’s will be here in the blink of an eye. Our holiday table is always filled with wonderful things to eat, wonderful and calorie loaded. While I’m a firm believer in everything in moderation I like to balance out our menu with a few healthier choices. Yes, I love some of the casseroles and the mashed potatoes that come with a holiday meal. But I don’t like that stuffed, I’ve just eaten a week’s worth of calories feeling. So I gathered up a few recipes to share with you. Add one or more of these healthier holiday side dishes to your menu for some lighter tastier options for you and your guests.
