Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to share tips on creating healthier holiday meals during the Mercy Heart Center's Holiday Lites program. What a fun event!

Many of you who attended this event asked for a copy of my presentation. So, here it is! In it, you'll find information about:

  • Visual presentation of food
  • Ingredient selection
