Thanksgiving may have passed, but December is filled with tempting treats from Christmas parties to New Year’s celebrations. Registered dietitian Julie Upton shares some tips with PopSugar to lighten dishes without sacrificing flavour.

Upton also recommends baking with canola oil because it is heart-healthy, low in saturated fat and has a neutral flavour.
