Skip these holiday party foods that just aren’t worth the sugar, calories and kilos they’ll pack on.
Eggnog is full of saturated fat, says Maya Feller, MS, RD, CDN of US-based Maya Feller Nutrition.
That’s mainly because it consists of whole milk and heavy cream. “It also serves up a good dose of sugar, as much as five teaspoons per one cup serving,” Feller adds.
Instead of eggnog, she recommends an eggnog latte with a non-dairy base (like almond milk) and no added sugar.
