This Roasted Beet Salad recipe is filled with healthy and flavorful ingredients. You can’t BEET it!

swap refined grains for whole grains

Whole grains offer more fiber and B vitamins than their white, or refined, counterparts. Simple swaps such as brown rice are an easy way to add more nutrition to your holiday dishes.

sub whole milk with low-fat or plant-based milk

Swap out whole milk for a low-fat variety to cut back on saturated fat. Choosing plant-based options like unsweetened almond or oat milks also reduces saturated fat and accommodates for your dairy-free guests.

mix and match potatoes and cauliflower

Try making half mashed cauliflower and half mashed potatoes for a lighter dish! You'll cut back on carbs and calories, and your guests likely won't taste a difference.

swap out sour cream for Greek yogurt

Add extra protein to a dish when you substitute sour cream for plain Greek yogurt. Opt for low-fat varieties to know you are choosing Good For You foods!

instead of eggs, go for canned pumpkin

Use 1/4 cup canned pumpkin for each egg in baked dishes to get more of this favorite holiday vegetable into your meals and cut back on fat and calories in the dish.
