There are always strategies that help choose the healthier holiday treats that help choose the healthier holidays treats.  Information always helps you  make your best choices .

Choose a slice of pumpkin pie over pecan or mince meat.  (difference of about 187 calories).  Even better, don't eat the crust on the edge which holds a majority of the calories.

Choose 4 tbls of hummus over 4 tbls of spinach/artichoke dip ( saves about 100 calories).

Choose 4 stuffed baby portabella caps vs. 4 Swedish meatballs ( saves about 100 calories).

Choose 6 shrimp with cocktail sauce, instead of 6 coconut shrimp (savings of 56 calories).

Remember that many eggnogs, lattes, and mocha's are like a liquid dessert in terms of calories.

Have fun, but choose wisely!
