Preparing holiday meals can create stress on budgets and waistlines, but a West Virginia University Extension Service specialist says simplicity is key to keeping guests happy and healthy during the holidays.
“Holidays are often associated with big, traditional meals. By taking a simplistic approach, you can save yourself unnecessary stress, extra calories and strained finances,” said Amy Gannon, a registered dietitian and specialist with WVU Extension’s Family Nutrition Program.
Gannon serves as a faculty member for the Family Nutrition Programs. As a registered and licensed dietitian, she works to promote pediatric and adolescent nutrition across the state, focusing particularly on limited-resource audiences.
