Healthy Holiday Recipe Round UpYou are invited to join the healthy holiday recipe round up to share and find delicious, healthy recipes for your holiday menu. Starting on November 12th, 2008, and then every Wednesday for the next four weeks Cooking with Just The Right Spice will be featuring healthy holiday recipes from across the blogosphere.

Do any of these traditional holiday foods sound familiar to you? Turkey with bread stuffing, creamy mashed potatoes and gravy. How about sweet potatoes or yams with brown sugar and marshmallows, green bean casserole, and breads. We can’t forget the many desserts and goodies such as pies, cakes, cookies, squares and other treats that are being planned for the upcoming holiday.

Don’t despair, you and your family can enjoy your holiday feasts and still maintain a healthy diet. Substituting whole grains, low fat, low sodium ingredients and using less sugar are some of the ways in which you can cook up a healthy alternative.

To help you find healthier versions of traditional and unique holiday recipes for your menu I’m hosting the recipe round up! I’ll be posting recipes for the holiday here which support living a healthier lifestyle and I’ll be linking to other great recipes that help you sustain that goal as well.

Four weeks of healthy recipes for the holidays!

Thank you to give more people a chance I’m limiting it to one entry per blog per week but there are three weeks left so that means you can enter three times.
