10 anti-holiday recipes that prove this season can be delicious and healthy

The holiday season has arrived with its cozy atmosphere, joyous celebrations and inevitable joy. From Thanksgiving feasts to Christmas cookie exchanges to Auntie Eva’s irresistible jelly donuts, not to mention leftover Halloween candy, fall is still here and winter can feel like a non-stop gorge fest.

Complete resistance is largely futile, but it’s actually helpful to arm yourself with ways to minimize the effects of all the things you eat and drink during the holidays. One approach is to serve hearty, festive meals in small portions and focus on savoring the flavors slowly. The second is to counteract those holiday calorie-bomb meals with some light meals in between.

Contrary to popular belief, bland food doesn’t have to be tasteless, boring, or unsatisfying. And contrary to popular belief, meals don’t have to fill your entire plate, especially if you’re trying to balance a heavy holiday meal.

It’s possible to enjoy the season to its fullest while maintaining a healthy balance. Whether you’re low-carb or plant-based or gluten-free or like to eat everything under the sun, we’ve got you covered with these 10 easy, low-calorie meals from across the dietary spectrum.
