Festive and fulfilling

As the holiday season enters the home stretch, with one party blending into another, now is the time to taper off rather double down on goodies. Between festive occasions, dining on dishes rich in flavor and low in fat is a superb way to ensure you walk rather than crawl into the New Year. After all, shaving a few hundred calories here and there means not having to shed pounds come January. Try these healthy holiday dishes to keep you fortified between feasts. (Text: Enrique Gili)
