Tasty Tips for Healthy Holidays

Ideas for Nutritious Meals from Culinary Trained Dole Dietitian Melanie Marcus

With winter holidays just around the corner, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the amount of delicious food that will be offered over the next few weeks. The truth is traditional holiday foods, while delicious, can be full of unhealthy fats, salt, sugar and often loaded with calories. Here are a few of my personal tips to get you through the Holiday Dinner without feeling like you completely overdid it. 

The Main Dish:

Desserts and Drinks:



Healthy Cranberry Sauce

Serves 8



24 oz fresh DOLE® Cranberries

 ¾ cup DOLE Pineapple Juice

½ cup applesauce (no sugar added)

½ cup water juice and zest of one orange

2 tablespoons honey (optional)


Put cranberries, pineapple juice, applesauce and water in a sauce medium-size saucepan and bring to a boil.

Allow the sauce to simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.

Remove from the heat; when the sauce has thickened, add the juice and zest of the orange along with the honey if using.

Allow to cool completely and store in fridge for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight before serving.
