It's true that Americans are more health conscious these days, but that awareness seems to wane during the holidays. Celebratory meals typically include large amounts of cholesterol in the form of cream, eggs and fatty meats—bad news if you’re concerned about heart disease and other illnesses linked to high cholesterol counts.
However, with a little vigilance and a lot of herbs you can significantly cut cholesterol from traditional holiday fare without sacrificing flavor. This holiday feast is healthy, mouthwatering proof. Let the celebrating begin!
