With one more party to go there is one more hurdle before the celebrating is over. Let’s try to stay on track with healthy eating.

Here are some healthier options for:

12oz hard cider versus 6oz Eggnog and save 250 calories

12oz light beer versus 12oz regular beer and save 40-60 calories

4oz wine versus 4oz Margarita on the rocks and save 90 calories

1.5oz of spirits with 6oz soda water versus soda or tonic and save 60 calories

Make sure to drink water between alcoholic beverages (add a lemon or a lime to the glass and no one will no it’s water).

Have a great holiday party weekend. Celebrate responsibly and Here’s to a Healthy, Happy New Year!

Happy, Healthy Holiday Meals

2011-12-20T01:56:19+00:00 December 20th, 2011|Nutrition|0 Comments

If you are hosting the holiday meal and want to keep your families food fare healthy…… considering swapping out a few ingredients. Eat healthy without sacrificing taste!

•Using two egg whites in place of one egg can reduce the cholesterol and produce the same tasty result.
• Use low-sodium, fat-free chicken broth in your mashed potatoes to add flavor and lighten holiday fat content.
• Substitute applesauce for oil, margarine or butter in muffins and quick breads like banana bread. Try substituting a small amount at first, as the more you substitute the more the texture of the finished product changes.
• For dips, sauces and pie toppings, use non-fat Greek yogurt and whipped topping. (whipped toppings have less calories for the same amount)
• Sliced almonds make a delicious, crunchy topping in place of fried onion rings.
• Choose reduced-fat cheeses for salads and casseroles.
Happy eating!
