I'll be the first to admit that I love the sweet treats of winter, from peppermint mochas to gingerbread cookies to a good 'ol glass of eggnog. But of course, there's festive food and drink everywhere this time of year, so I can't endlessly indulge. I decide when it's worth it to have the real thing and when I take healthier shortcuts. As my holiday gift to you, I'm taking you to dessert school. You're about to learn what other dietitians and I designate as "worth it" in the dessert department.
With a little planning, you can enjoy the holidays while also keeping the pounds off (and maybe even losing a few, too). Yes, you can lose weight this holiday season! See what advice I give in this ReadersDigest.com article. Need some help in cooking at home? See my thoughts on Hello Fresh meals.
Pomegranates are in season through winter! Enjoy their delightful crunch in these mini chocolate dessert cups. Plus, the pomegranate arils provide a delightful crunch while adding sweetness via nature's candy, fruit.
