Smart Nutrition: Meeting The Holiday Food Challenge

It’s time for another monthly installment of Smart Nutrition here on MiddayToday, a conversation about navigating the twists and turns of holiday party-going, and holiday party-giving.  Is there a better way of preparing those partridges in a pear tree than soaking them in lard and serving them with thickly buttered bread?  And what about the guests we invite to our parties who arrive with a list of food allergies, preferences and prohibitions that’s taller than the tree in Rockefeller Center?  Is there a way to be both naughty and nice when it comes to nutrition at this time of year?  

Joining Tom in the studio to help us sort it all out is the Nutrition Diva, Monica Reinagel.  She’s an author and a licensed nutritionist who joins us on Midday every month, and who blogs on food, diet and health issues at nutrition over easy.com.  Also with us to talk about the holiday's culinary challenges  is Andy Thomas, the Executive Chef at The Elephant Restaurant in Baltimore.

Tom and guests take your calls, comments and suggestions for good Yuletide eats on this edition of Smart Nutrition.
