"Healthy" Holiday Food to Avoid
The Holiday season is in full gear and you will surely be invited to many celebrations. If you want to avoid putting on those pesky extra Holiday pounds here are a few tips from eatingwell.com to help you navigate the buffet line!
1. Mixed Nuts- take it easy, have a small sampling but keep it to a minimum so as to not load up on calories and fat.
2. Veggies with Ranch Dressing- try the vegetables without the dressing, they can be just as yummy naked or with a tiny scoop of hummus.
3. Cheese & Crackers- cheese is high in fat and calories, crackers are high in calories- go back to the vegetables!
4. Spiced Cider- it might taste great but its packed with calories. Treat yourself to one small glass and then switch to seltzer with a lime or lemon wedge
Remember, sometimes we eat just to eat and not because were hungry. Beware of the difference and your Holidays will be happier!
