Survive the Holidays by Making Some Food Substitutions, Part 1

November 16, 2010

Thanksgiving is just over a week away and is the big kick-off for the season of food indulgence. I’m hoping to keep off the extra pounds during the season of gluttony by making some well-considered food substitutions.

One of my all-time favorite holiday foods is egg nog, but it’s so bad for the waist line. A cup of the average commercially prepared egg nog packs on 343 calories, 19 grams of fat, and 149.9 milligrams of cholesterol. All of that BEFORE you add the alcohol.

For your consideration, I offer up a worthy substitute in Silk Soy Egg Nog.

It’s still frothy and delicious, and a cup has just 180 calories, 4 grams of fat, and zero cholesterol.

In the coming days, I’ll offer up additional suggestions for less-fattening versions of my favorite holiday foods, as well as a recipe or two. We’re all in this together, right?
