  • 1 large red onion, sliced

  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, plus more if necessary

  • 6 ounces smoked salmon  

  • 1 Persian cucumber, thinly sliced

  • Fresh dill, chopped

  • Fresh chives, chopped

  • Cream cheese

  • Kosher salt

  • 8 slices wheat bread

 

1.) Put the butter in a shallow, wide pan. Once melted, add the onions and cook over medium high heat. Toss in butter to coat and dash with a bit of kosher salt. Turn the heat down to low, cover and cook for 30-40 minutes or until browned. Stir occasionally. (If you need to add a little more butter to keep the onions from sticking, go for it.)

 

2. Once onions are browned, remove from heat and set aside. Lightly toast the bread slices and spread a thin layer of cream cheese on each one. Top four slices with a healthy sprinkling of fresh chives and dill followed by a few slices of cucumber, salmon and finally onions. Lay the remaining slices of bread on top.

Being health-conscious doesn't necessarily mean that you can't enjoy the holiday season and have a little bit of what you fancy. It simply means that you should continue to be vigilant and be prepared for the festivities.There are many ways in which you can help to strike a balance between maintaining a healthy diet and joining in with the fun and festivities.

 

1. Exercise: Most people have a little extra time available over the holiday season when they are not at work. Take this opportunity to develop a regular exercise regime. This will help to burn off the excess calories and fat consumed over this period. It will also get you into the habit of exercising, and you can continue the regime after the holiday season is over.

 

2. Review your cooking methods: These days there is no excuse for not utilizing the many healthy ways in which food can be prepared. Instead of frying, grill your food. If you're roasting, use one of the many available low-calorie spray oils. Try steaming vegetables...
