Healthy Holiday and Occasion Recipes
Find healthy, delicious holiday recipes including Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, and 4th of July recipes from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Farmers’ Market Fried Rice
This fried rice recipe features a fall mixture of sliced Brussels sprouts and parsnips, but feel free to use whatever is fresh and in season. This recipe works best in a wok— a skillet is too small for the volume of food and requires more oil to prevent sticking. Always use cold cooked rice otherwise the fried rice will be gummy and sticky……………….

Pulled Pork with Caramelized Onions
Traditional pulled pork is barbecued, which gives it a smoky flavor. But the slow cooker happens to be the absolute easiest way to cook pulled pork—and you can get a hint of smoke by adding chipotle chile. Serve the pulled pork with potato salad, collard greens and grits. Or make it into a sandwich and serve it on a bun with coleslaw…………

Maple-Roasted Sweet Potatoes
In this easy vegetable side dish recipe, sweet potatoes are tossed with maple syrup, butter and lemon juice and are roasted until tender and golden brown. The delicious glaze that forms on these maple-roasted sweet potatoes transform this ultra-simple dish into something sublime……….

Find healthy, delicious grilled pizza recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.



Smoky Corn and Black Bean Pizza
The secret to a grilled pizza is having all your ingredients ready to go before you head out to the grill. Make it a meal: Toss the extra black beans, diced tomato and some avocado with prewashed salad greens and a tangy vinaigrette and dinner is on the table in no time…..

Black Bean Nacho Pizza
Break out the napkins! This pie is an over-the-top, vegetarian concoction with black-bean spread, Jack cheese, tomatoes, scallions, olives and pickled jalapenos; it’s part nacho, part pizza. For an even more decadent treat, serve with low-fat sour cream. Beer pairing: Spicy foods need spicy beers—go for an India Pale Ale (IPA). If you’re not a hop-head, the malty sweetness of brown ales work well with the sweeter elements on the pizza…..

Grilled Pizza with Pesto, Tomatoes & Feta
Dazzle your guests, and keep the kitchen cool, by baking pizza on the backyard grill. For convenience, this recipe uses prepared pizza dough, found in most supermarkets, and pesto from a jar……

From the EatingWell website it’s 30-Minute Low-Calorie Soups. Low Calorie Soup Recipes that includes black bean soup, seafood chowder, chicken soup or gazpacho. Don’t miss out on these delicious, healthy and satisfying Soup Recipes and Ideas. It can all be found on the EatingWell website.



30-Minute Low-Calorie SoupsEatingWell2

Quick soups and quick stews to help you slim down.
Soup is satisfying when you’re on a diet, especially as the weather turns cooler. Even better, soup can help you slim down: studies show that soup makes you feel fuller and more satiated than other types of food. Researchers think that it may have to do with the high water content. Also, when soup is piping hot we eat it more slowly and that gives us time to notice when we feel full. Try one of these quick, super-satisfying, healthy soup recipes tonight, such as black bean soup, seafood chowder, chicken soup or gazpacho.



Sweet & Sour Beef-Cabbage Soup
This wholesome sweet-and-sour soup combines beef, caraway seeds, sweet paprika and cabbage—ingredients that star in a number of German dishes. It is particularly nice served with crusty rye bread. For an even heartier soup, add diced cooked potatoes along with the cabbage……

Japanese Chicken-Scallion Rice Bowl
Here’s the quintessence of Japanese home cooking: an aromatic, protein-rich broth served over rice. Admittedly, Japanese cooking leans heavily on sugar – for a less traditional taste, you could reduce or even omit the sugar…….

Ribollita Soup
Ribollita, a traditional hearty Tuscan soup, typically uses day-old bread to add body and thicken the broth. This ribollita recipe uses a bean mash, which keeps the soup gluten-free and adds fiber. Garnish with extra-virgin olive oil or pepper and grated Parmesan…….

Trying to eat clean? These recipes are low in saturated fat, sodium and added sugars, and deliver natural whole grains, fruits and vegetables and green tea. Find out more about our clean eating tips—what foods to eat and what to skip.



Penne alla Primavera
Penne tossed with spring vegetables, such as carrots, morel mushrooms, asparagus, peas and fava beans, along with loads of fresh herbs is a perfect example of Mario Batali’s rustic approach to great-tasting Italian food. When both fava beans and morel mushrooms are in season, by all means use them in this recipe. But if you can’t find either of those, substitute what looks best. Basic cremini mushrooms will work and frozen lima beans are a good option…..



Grilled Shrimp with Melon & Pineapple Salsa
Grilled shrimp is perfectly accented by this light, summery pineapple-melon salsa. The flavors are bright and fresh, just right for a hot day. Use just one melon or any combination of melons—including watermelon—for the versatile salsa. For best flavor marinate the shrimp overnight…..

7 Small But Powerful Diet Habits That Add Up to Major Weight-Loss Success

Some great tips from the Eating Well website, 7 Small But Powerful Diet Habits That Add Up to Major Weight-Loss Success.



Eating Well

These small and easy changes will help you eat healthier.
When it comes to weight loss, it’s the little things that can really add up to make a big difference. Think “diet” and you might assume it requires a radical revamp of your life or misery-inducing restrictions. But when it comes to lasting weight loss, research shows you’re better off making small, consistent changes rather than aiming for a major diet or lifestyle overhaul. The key is that the changes are practical and sustainable so that you can permanently adopt them into your everyday life. In one study, people who made tiny adjustments to their eating habits were able to stick to their new routines—and had more success slimming down compared to those who didn’t incorporate the tips. To help shed pounds, without making any huge changes, follow these 7 easy habits for weight-loss success.



1. Eat Breakfast Every Day
Research shows dieters are more successful at losing weight—and keeping it off—when they eat breakfast. If you don’t already eat breakfast, start. If you are already a breakfast eater, try eating the same breakfast multiple days each week. Repeating the same meals can help you shed pounds, according to research. One of my morning favorites: a whole-wheat English muffin topped with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter and ½ sliced banana. This meal delivers a modest 278 calories, along with filling fiber and protein. It’s also portable and ready in less than 5 minutes, so forget about using any “I don’t have time for breakfast” excuses…



2. Downsize Your Dish
Studies show that we eat less when we use smaller dinnerware. The theory is that our eyes get tricked into thinking we are eating more because our plate is full, making the food portions look bigger. The result: we are satisfied with less food. Try eating your meals on salad plates instead of larger dinner plates….
