10 Tricks to Lighten Up Your Holiday Treats

Lighten Up Latkes


It’s fine to indulge in the real thing—crispy, fried latkes—at least once during Hanukkah festivities, but if they’re going to be a regular feature on your holiday table, experiment with better-for-you versions that are baked or cooked in a nonstick pan with just a small amount of oil. Or, get creative with recipes that use low-cal veggies like zucchini, cauliflower, or broccoli in place of starchy potatoes. Dollop your latkes with lighter toppings, including light sour cream, nonfat Greek yogurt, or natural (unsweetened) apple sauce.
