Let’s be honest, the holidays wouldn’t be as much fun without all the goodies! It is the only time of year we’re practically encouraged to splurge a little.
So go ahead and savor those extra calories in cookies and pie—and avoid going too far overboard by cutting back on liquid calories while celebrating!
Did you know, 8 oz of eggnog has almost 350 calories, and 19 grams of fat!? Yeah, crazy. For a healthier option, buy the reduced fat version, or make your own using egg whites.
And a 12 ounce hot chocolate can have the same amount of calories as a Whopper with Cheese from Burger King! A healthy solution would be to shop for sugar free, use skim milk and, yes, skip the marshmallows and whip cream.
A peppermint mocha—even worse! 16 ounces will pack 400 extra calories and 16 grams of fat! Instead, try adding a tablespoon of coffee-mate seasonal flavor peppermint mocha to your cup of joe instead.
How about this, a Pumpkin Spice Latte has 380 calories and 13 grams of fat in just 16 ounces! Really, your best bet here is just to order a smaller size, and sip slowly!
I can’t ask ya to skip on the champagne toast! There’s only 156 calories in an 8 ounce glass, but do enjoy in moderation. The more you drink, the calories will add up, and getting a little tipsy will make you more likely to overindulge in food!
