Dr. Tim Says....

It’s holiday time, and that means food. I believe that you should splurge on holidays, but at the same time it’s just as easy to not overdo it as it is to eat everything in your path. One of the toughest places for people to stick to healthy eating habits is parties.

Here are a few ideas to help you eat well and eat healthy at the holidays: 5 Tips for Healthier Holiday Dining

Featured Recipe

CranberriesHoliday Panna Cotta with Chocolate Cranberry Sauce
Panna cotta is Italian for cooked cream and often served at the holidays. It is a tradition throughout other Mediterranean countries as well. The nutmeg gives this recipe a warm, holiday feel.

This recipe is low in sodium and safe for Coumadin® (warfarin) users and those with GERD / Acid Reflux. Those who are lactose intolerant should avoid this recipe.

Featured Ingredient: Nutmeg

Nutmeg'Nutmeg is sold both as the whole seed and ground. The seed is about an inch long and oval shaped with a light brown skin. Grinding your nutmeg fresh, like grinding any spice fresh, is far superior to any ground nutmeg that you can purchase.

Zyliss Nutmeg GraterI have a nutmeg grater. These come in a variety of styles but the one I have is made by Zyliss. It has a little cylinder that the nutmeg fits into and then is held in place with a spring. As you run the holder back and forth over the grater there�s no chance of grating your knuckles. A must for any serious chef. Zyliss Nutmeg Grater
