Healthy Base Initiative: Favorite fall & holiday recipes

image001
Don’t overstuff yourself this holiday season! Fall and winter cooking don’t have to be calorie-packed thanks to the latest Operation Live Well e-book. The Department of Defense’s wellness initiative just published its fifth e-book, featuring some of the Operation Live Well team’s favorite fall and holiday recipes. The 49-page booklet includes healthier options for fall favorites, with a few classic meals like turkey and stuffing. The goal is to showcase that even your favorite comfort foods are OK to consume during this festive season, but in moderation.

Visit the nutrition section of the Operation Live Well page at Health.mil and click on “Operation Live Well Releases Fall and Holiday Recipes” to download and print your copy today. While you’re there, be sure to follow Operation Live Well’s social media channels, including Pinterest, for more healthy meal ideas.
