10 holiday recipes that prove the season can be tasty and healthy

The Christmas season has arrived with its cozy atmosphere, joyful parties and inevitable indulgences. From Thanksgiving parties to Christmas cookie exchanges to Aunt Evas irresistible jelly donuts, not to mention the leftover Halloween candy that still lingers, winter can feel like a constant gorge party.

Total resistance is pretty pointless, and it also helps to equip yourself with ways to mitigate the effects of all that eating while on vacation. One way is to offer smaller amounts of rich, festive foods and focus on savoring the flavor slowly. Another option is to combat the holiday calorie bomb meals with lighter meals.

Contrary to popular belief, light eating doesn’t have to be bland, boring or unsatisfying. And contrary to common practice, meals don’t have to fill the entire plate, especially when trying to balance heavy holiday eating.

It is possible to enjoy seasonal bonuses while maintaining a healthy balance. Whether you prefer to eat low-carb, plant-based, gluten-free, or everything under the sun, we’ve got these 10 easy, low-calorie meals from a variety of foods.

Each of these recipes has less than 600 calories (often much less) per serving and can be made in less than 30 minutes. And Albertsons has made it easy to find O Organic ingredients that you can put right in your cart to make preparing these meals even simpler.
