Healthy Holiday Foods: Eggnog recipes

Worst: Eggnog

Before you toast the holiday season with a glass of eggnog, consider this: an 8-oz serving can easily exceed 250 calories and 5g saturated fat. (Wouldn't you rather have dessert?) Choose a 4 oz. glass of wine instead, or if you're hosting, try making our lightened version shown here―it has just 152 calories and 2.7g saturated fat. If you're the designated driver, or just abstaining, here's a non-alcoholic drink you could sip all night long: seltzer water mixed with a bit of 100 percent fruit juice.
