5 Unhealthiest Foods of the Holidays!

The shocking-but-true nutrition information for a cup of egg nog. ::gulp::

The holidays are about jingling bells, not bellies… but almost all of us gain a few holiday pounds. Eat good food and be merry, but do your best to replace these five worst of the worst foods to minimize the gain:

  1. Egg Nog. Drink two cups of egg nog and you’ve already exceeded your daily recommend saturated fat intake. Yup, it’s that bad for you. Made with eggs, sugar, milk, heavy cream and brown sugar… the result is an artery-clogging concoction with about 350 calories in a single cup. It’s basically liquid heart disease. Cheers!
  2. Pigs in a blanket. Pigs in a blanket are those addicting mini hot dogs wrapped in dough. They make the list not just because they are terrible from a nutrition standpoint, but because it’s nearly impossible to eat just one or two. Each piggy is a bomb of calories, sodium, nitrates and saturated fat; one serving has about 1/3 of your daily recommend value of sodium and saturated fat. But who has just one serving?
  3. Peanut brittle. Sure, peanuts are good for you. Until you cover them in sugar and butter. Get ready to gag: A single cup of peanut brittle has almost 700 calories! Add to that: 43% of your daily value of fat, 37% of your daily value of saturated fat and more carbohydrates than a bagel – it’s no wonder that this delicious treat makes my unhealthiest holiday foods list.
  4. Prime rib. A true holiday favorite, prime rib is rich in protein. But it’s also cut from the fattest part of the cow. A single slice has 750 calories and… 45 grams of fat! And now, a message from your heart: Opt for turkey or a beef tenderloin instead.
  5. Pecan pie. Eat a slice of pecan pie, and you’ve already consumed a quarter of your day’s calories; each slice has anywhere from 500 – 600 calories, 40% of your daily value of fat and 25% of your daily value of saturated fat. And that’s without the whipped cream topping!

Enjoy your holidays – and ensure that you’ll be around for many more by replacing these foods with healthier options like unsalted mixed nuts, shrimp cocktail, fresh steamed veggies, leaner meats and healthier (but still delicious!) dessert options.
