Holidays are simply not the time for sacrificing - especially when it comes down to the treats you grew up loving to share with your family. Unfortunately most of us don't have the same metabolisms we did when we were eight years old, and instead of looking for Santa, we wind up looking like Santa by Christmas Eve.

Here on the farm don't believe in artificial sweeteners or processed diet foods, so we've developed some healthy, natural ways to enjoy our favorite holiday noshing without resorting to poking new notches in our belts.

"Dilute" your holiday treats with popcorn. Instead of settling down for an evening of Holiday Specials with a big bag of holiday candy, pop a huge bowl of popcorn and mix in a portion controlled amount of your favorite candies. You'll still get your chocolate fix, but hopefully will fill up on popcorn before you over-indulge on candy. Try mixing M&M's, mini peanut butter cups, or white chocolate chips into your popcorn. (Just go sparingly.)

Thin cookies = thin you. This is really the easiest solution for coping with holiday cookies. When you're rolling out your gingerbread, or sugar cookie dough, roll it thinner! That's right. A cookie that is half as thick has half the calories. (Be sure to lessen the cooking time accordingly, though. Thinner dough will cook faster.) Even better: use smaller cookie cutters as well.

Beekman Boys Holiday Recipes Egg Nogg

Holidays are simply not the time for sacrificing - especially when it comes down to the treats you grew up loving to share with your family. Unfortunately most of us don't have the same metabolisms we did when we were eight years old, and instead of looking for Santa, we wind up looking like Santa by Christmas Eve.

Egg Nog in front of the fireplace is a holiday ritual at Beekman 1802 Farm. But nog is like a perfect winter storm of both calories and fat. One 8 ounce serving can have more than 400 calories and 20 grams of fat. Our trick? Use half egg nog, and half skim milk. (Even diluting your egg nog with whole milk will save a hundred calories or so.) Add a little extra cinnamon, and you'll barely notice the difference. (Add enough rum, and you won't notice anything.)
