Classy Cranberries and Savory Sweet Potatoes: A perfect holiday duo
- Start by choosing whole food ingredients in place of processed or canned goods in your holiday recipes. By utilizing fresh cranberries in a recipe you can adjust the amount of sweetener you would like to add, instead of buying canned.
- Reduce the sugar amounts in your favorite recipes. Instead of adding in a whole cup, try adding in just ¾ or 2/3 of a cup and see if you notice too much of a difference.
- Try swapping unrefined sugar with healthier alternatives like maple syrup, honey, coconut sugar, or sucanat for added vitamins and minerals.
- Add dried fruit to recipes in place of extra sugar to add sweetness as well as added fiber and nutrients.
