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.
Naked hot chocolate just isn't fun. But whipped cream and marshmallows can easily double the calorie count of a steaming mug of cocoa. Instead, pull that milk frother you bought when you thought you were going to make cappucinos for yourself every morning. Using frothed milk instead of whipped cream seriously cuts into the calorie and fat count. And if you still feel the need something more festive, sprinkle a few red and green sprinkles on top.
