Healthy Holiday Swaps: Healthy Cranberry Sauce

Written By Jason Kieffer • 1 min read

The big Thanksgiving feast is already this week! Hopefully you’ve added my Stuffing and Mashed Potato Swaps to your menu for a mouthwatering Thanks-slimming, and I’ve got one more healthy holiday swap for ya— a healthy cranberry sauce in the form of Pomegranate Cranberry Chutney.

The real killer of traditional cranberry sauce is the sugar content, in the upwards range of 100+ grams of sugar, and you haven’t even had your pie yet! This version of cranberry sauce is a crowd pleaser at PFC Fitness Camp and will be a favorite around your Thanksgiving Table.
