The Best of the Worst - Holiday Food Edition

75% of Americans gain weight around the holidays.*

Christmas is about food, right? You know what I’m talking about. Every family has those recipes that only come out around the holidays. Christmas is about hanging around family and eating --in general, indulging -- often in foods that aren't all that good for us. But there's not good, and then there's not good! Here are 4 different food pairings: TurkeyvsHam-creatas-istock Better: Roasted Turkey Breast (6oz) – 225 calories, 2g of fat, 0g sat fat, 1,170mg of Sodium, 2g of carbs, 50g of protein Worse: Honey Baked Ham (6oz)- 340 calories, 18g of fat, 6g sat fat, 1,640mg of Sodium, 18g of Carbs, 28g of protein Take home point: They both are high in sodium, but to get a more nutrient dense meal I would go with the Roasted Turkey.  

christmas-tree-page-borderchristmas-tree-border1-h-1471f-qlruauz3 green-beansBetter:Sauteed Green Beans with Olive Oil & Garlic – 114 calories, 9g fat, 1g sat, 7mg sodium, 8g carbs, 4g fiber, 2g protein

 

Worse:Green Bean Casserole (1cup)- 197 calories, 11g fat, 3g sat fat, 575mg of Sodium, 23g carbs, 4g fiber, 0g protein281545994_1385050987

  Take Home Point: Just because it has vegetables in it doesn’t make it healthy. Go with the lighter option of sautéed green beans and save your waistline from the holiday bulge.   candy-canes-borderh 20111129-Eggnog-SODeliciousBetter:So Delicious Coconut Milk Egg Nog (1 cup) – 90 calories, 3g fat, 3g sat, 115mg Sodium, 15g Carbs, 1g fiber, 14g sugar, 0g protein. Worse:Traditional Egg Nog (1 cup) – 200 calories, 9g fat, images5g sat fat, 100mg sodium, 26g carbs, 20g sugar, 5g protein Take Home Point:If Egg Nog is your drink of choice for Holiday parties, go with the option that has fewer calories, but then again who goes to a party and doesn’t drink “traditional” egg nog? christmas-tree-page-borderchristmas-tree-border1-h-1471f-qlruauz3 Cherry_Cream_Cheese_Pie-4Better: Homemade Cream Cheese Pie with Cherries (1 slice) – 492 calories, 10g fat, 0g sat, 329mg sodium, 69g carbs, 8g protein UnknownWorst: Homemade Pecan Pie (1 slice) – 530 calories, 29g fat, 9g sat, 420mg Sodium, 63g carbs, 1g fiber, 5g protein Take Home Point:Unless you truly want to eat an apple or grapefruit for dessert you are going to be getting a lot of calories, so choose wisely. *http://www.moneycrashers.com/avoid-holiday-weight-gain-statistics/
