Let’s all face it, the holidays are not always the best time to start a healthy nutrition plan. There are studies all over showing anywhere from 2 pounds, to even 10 pounds of added weight gain all because of Aunt Betty’s delicious, homemade, flaky-crust apple pie! Well, maybe not just the pie. From unhealthy carbs and fat, to doctoring up the veggies with cream sauces and fried toppings, it’s really hard to escape the cravings your taste buds yell out for during the holiday months.
Instead of giving you healthy recipes, per say, we’ve found a great blog about making better choices. If mousse, biscotti and pumpkin pie sound good, then you are on the right track! (Did you read that sentence again to see if you read it right? Yes, we said biscotti is on the right track!) Our friends at Main Line Health have an oldie but a goodie when it comes to making better choices during the holiday dessert battle. Have you ever considered really enjoying that decadent pumpkin pie, but leaving behind the crust? Maybe it’s the glob of whipped cream on top that satisfies your sweet tooth, but skipping it, and enjoying the pumpkin pie for its original taste without the additional calories could be your answer to making better choices.
