Foods to Avoid During the Holidays With Possible Substitutes

Swedish meatballs – instead, try some cold cuts like ham or turkey
EggNog – instead, try a cinnamon or other spiced tea
Stuffed potatoes – instead, eat a regular baked potatoe or red potatoes
Creamed spinach – instead, spinach without the cream or broccoli
Pot Roast – instead, breast of turkey or sliced steak
Fruitcake – instead, a fruit tart
Pecan Pie – instead, a fruit tart
Cheese Cake – instead, a slice of pound cake
Croissant – instead, some whole grain bread
Hot Buttered Rum – just leave out the butter, and then spice with nutmeg
Cinnamon Rolls – instead, a slice of toasted whole grain bread with a bit of jelly
Ice Cream – instead, sorbet

Making sensible diet choices is easier than it seems and there’s no time like the present to start.

Here’s to a fun, tasty and skinny holiday.
