You don’t have to be Italian to appreciate good Italian food. And the Feast of Seven Fishes—a Christmas Eve tradition that hails from Southern Italy—certainly doesn’t disappoint. In true Italian fashion, it involves multiple courses (seven, as you might have guessed), each of which involves a different type of seafood. To partake in the full feast without completely forgoing your healthy-eating goals, we’ve made a few calorie-conscious tweaks. LivingHealthy’s lighter Feast of the Seven Fishes still celebrates the Italian tradition without skimping on flavor or festiveness. Buon appetito!
