Are you looking forward to your favorite holiday foods, but not to the added calories? By making a few conscious choices about food ingredients, you can indulge guilt free this holiday season. Check out these 4 healthier swaps for traditional Hanukkah dishes.


Vegetables Latkes


Instead of using potatoes to make this traditional dish, try using a mix of zucchini, cauliflower, and carrot shreds. To shed even more calories, try topping with apple sauce or Greek yogurt rather than sour cream.


Sufganiyot Jelly Donuts


Swap deep frying in oil with baking in a muffin tin for a healthier take on this fried favorite. Fresh fruit may also be substituted for the jelly filler.


Crock Pot Applesauce


This dish takes a while to reach perfection – around six hours – but tastes great! Slow cooking fruit allows the natural sweetness to come out. This means there is no reason to add sugar or sweetener to this dish – just fruit!

Kugel


This traditional casserole is normally made with egg noodles or potatoes. For a healthier take on this dish, make it with vegetables, olive oil, eggs, and a dash of seasoning.

Avoiding deep frying food in oil greatly reduces the unhealthiness. By swapping a few ingredients, you can enjoy your holiday favorites while also feeling good about eating them.
