Healthier Holiday Desserts

During this time of year it takes heavy duty discipline to eat healthy when there are so many temptations around.  Especially if you have a sweet tooth (At Thanksgiving I believe my son ate a whole Graham Cracker Pie).
Just before Thanksgiving, Marquette’s Employee Wellness – Healthy Cooking Series demonstrated Healthier Holiday Desserts.  Usually, I do not care for tofu, but Chef James Melik demonstrated a Chocolate Tofu Silk Pie that was delicious and packed with protein
The following resources can help guide and allow you to indulge sensibly this holiday season with healthier versions of all your favorite pies, custards, cakes, and more…

Have a Happy and Healthy Holiday Season!
