10 Tricks to Lighten Up Your Holiday Treats

Rethink Your Roast


For meat lovers, nothing says holiday celebration quite like a perfectly cooked slab of prime rib. I don’t mean to sound like the Grinch here, but it’s also one of the fattiest cuts going. For an equally elegant meal that’s more health- and heart-friendly, consider swapping your rib roast for a succulent, lean beef tenderloin, which has about half the calories and less than a quarter of the fat. Or, branch out from beef and try other lean holiday entrées, like roast turkey, Cornish game hens, or pork tenderloin.
