If you’re one of the many looking to make some better for choices when it comes to holiday eating here is the scoop on healthier options for your favorite seasonal dishes and cocktails.
Sweeten Holiday Dishes Naturally
Pro tip? Just add in some California Raisins. They just add a nice natural sweet flavor and are 100% all-natural fruit, sweetened only by the California sun. There’s no added sugar, juice or preservatives and a quarter cup of raisins is a fruit serving that has 7% of your daily value of fiber and 6% potassium. Add them in your holiday sauces, glazes and salads or treats, like an orange blossom raisin tart.
