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.
