In the fall and winter months I find it easy to fall into the trap of making heavy, creamy food. There is nothing like a big, cheesy lasagna to warm you up on a cold day. The only problem is that these foods can be laden with calories which is deadly for one’s diet. I try to balance out the heavy food with lighter dishes like the one below. This helps keep me in check so I am not scrambling to shed pounds in order to get into a bathing suit the following summer. Here are some great ideas for lighter fall and winter meals. Enjoy!
