Healthy Holidays : Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is tough enough, but when special occasions roll around most people throw up their hands and dive into the Super Bowl snacks, Fourth of July hot dogs, Halloween treats, and New Year's champagne - knowing they'll regret it later. In Healthy Holidays, actress and healthy living expert Marilu Henner offers another choice. Here Marilu shows us how easy and fun it is to prepare healthy meals for family and friends for special occasions and holidays year-round. As in her other bestselling health books, Marilu throws out the red meat, dairy, and refined sugar and fills the kitchen with the freshest fruits, vegetables, grains, soy, seafood, poultry, and "legal" sugars. But denying ourselves is "not" on the agenda: Start the year right with delicious New Year's Day recipes, such as Asian Grilled Salmon and Sauteed Asparagus with Shallots - and pamper your guests with a spa party. Enjoy a romantic Valentine's Day with Honey-Baked Chicken, Warm Wild Mushroom Salad - and Cupid's Chocolate Cake, made with "healthy" sugars to keep you in the mood. For a delicious Fourth of July picnic, pack some of these treats: Sugar Snap Pea and Cucumber Salad, Curried Tuna Salad, and Blueberry Cobbler with a Cornmeal Crust. Prepare a mouthwatering feast for Thanksgiving that gives a healthy start for the holiday season - including Roast Turkey, Henner Holiday Dressing, Pecan Sweet Potatoes, and Pilgrim Pumpkin Pie.
