YOU REACHED AFC CULINARY CAMPUS 4th of 4 CYBER LOCATIONS
A holiday meal doesn’t have to be difficult to prepare or devoid of flavor, texture and lots fatty feels.
We prepared for you just such a meal on fat-freechef.com.
Reduced fat. Hey Coca-Cola doesn’t only sell Coca-Cola. We do it all. We’re all going to eat some fat throughout the holidays, so why not shoot for low fat?
As long as it’s good!!

THE Scales & Mirrors HOLIDAY MENU
This easy to make, fairly quick meal, given the number of dishes, contains all the flavors and textures of an American Holiday!
Warning. You may want to use 2 packages, as the temptation to keep nibbling after these nuggets are cooked is strong. Very strong.
We’re making a brown mushroom gravy using the Parsley Diet Soup as a base. With the addition of a few ingredients a savory gravy is achieved, while still keeping down the fat content. Traditionally gravy was made from the fat drippings with a little water and thickener added. Today we don’t use the animal and we don’t want the gravy to be predominantly fat.
Makes about 5 cups
They look like super fluffy sweet potatoes, but when you don’t have the time, and you want a nutrient boost, add carrot juice in place of the milk the recipe calls for on the package. Instant never tasted so good! You just may make this a habit!
Use wherever you use regular mashed potatoes!
We made 4 servings
Super simple pan-fried cabbage, requiring only a little oil, caraway seed and salt and pepper. How easy is that? The surprise is the flavor achieved, when simply caramelizing green cabbage without a lot of extraneous ingredients that distract from its natural flavor essence!
A beautiful expression of fat-free – velvety, light, impressive simplicity, gently coating the peas as you lift them from the sauce. Or hey, why not take some sauce along? Two spoons for service – one slotted, one not!
This calypso is a slow dance – enjoy the moves!
Those cranberry skins can get in the way of enjoying the cranberries. So what do we do? Make a pudding-like sauce that smooths the edges making the entire cranberry experience one to savor. Cilantro – in ground seed form and fresh leaves – now becomes something to talk about. You could call it the Halfway Cranberry Sauce – both jellied and whole in the same elegant sauce!
Makes 3-1/4 cups
Make your cranberry sauce and gravy ahead, then savor the day! Or, use canned cranberries and jarred gravy to make it even easier. Keep it animal-free!!
happy holidays to you and yours!
