Tis the season when our diets are tested. The holidays bring food temptations from sweet treats to family feasts. It’s tough to say no, but those no’s can turn to yeses if you know how to cook right and cook light. Health Matters heads into the kitchen with Chef Adam Hegsted for a special hands-on holiday edition designed to help you learn the tricks to tasty eating with recipes that won’t destroy your diet.  Even if you’re not looking to shed a few pounds this show will help you find new ways to enjoy your favorite foods with a little less guilt.
