Calorie Content of Common Holiday Treats

December 20, 2017

 

I think it's fair to say that most of us overindulge a bit this time of year.  It's hard not to with holiday parties every weekend or a constant flow of cookies in the break room at work.  I don't want to sound like Scrooge but there is a time and a place to enjoy your favorites in moderation.  Remember to pick your time to overindulge and make sure it is something special.  Another area where calories can add up quickly are the liquid calories.  Try alternating your cocktail with a glass of water in between.  To help you stay on track over the final weeks of 2017, here is a list of calories for common holiday treats.
