Delicious Holiday Foods You Shouldn’t Eat!
Uggghhhh! Some of these Holiday foods I could do without, but some of them really get my motor revving! Health.com has come up with a list of the highest calorie traditional Holiday foods. No wonder I'm as big as a house! Let's take a look!
Who knew these little cookies packed such a punch. I don't like them as much as say, Chunky Chips Ahoy, so I figured they had to be healthier… Right? Think again! With all the flour, sugar and buttermilk, they can have as many as 260 calories in one small piece with 12 grams of fat!
Candy canes are full of Holiday deliciousness. My horses love peppermints, too. They're not that bad calorie-wise… Unless you eat the whole box! They average out around 60 calories a piece.
I love sugar cookies! Especially the ones you get at Brookshire's with the thick icing on top! They're even better fresh. Hard sugar cookies are no fun! And they're called 'sugar' cookies for a reason! They generally have around 200 calories per cookie and 14 grams of sugar!
I love Egg Nog. And egg nog daquiris are even better than the plain drink! It's creamy, alcohol goodness! Too bad it's hell on the waist line! One cup, that's one cup, not as in one glass, but one actual measuring cup holds 350 calories, a day's worth of sugar and 150 milligrams of cholesterol.
I can't remember ever actually eating fruit cake. Maybe the 'fruit' turned me off? I do like fruit cake cookies though. They just seem more moist. It's a good think a fruit cake cookie is smaller than a slice of the cake because a slice weighs in at over 400 calories and 13 grams of fat.
I do love me some peanut brittle which shouldn't be a surprise because I'm a total nut! If you're on a diet though, you might want to stay away from it! One piece typically has 150 calories and 5 grams of fat.
I'm a Southern girl and I love me some pe-cans! You know we can tell from the way you say the word pecan, what part of the country your from! It's pure sugary goodness mixed with nuts, butter and flaky pastry. What's the downside? Oh yeah, at least 500 calories a slice, 37 grams of fat and 26 grams of sugar.
Starbucks Peppermint White Mocha
Yummy! Yummy! Yummy in my tummy! I love Starbucks even though it's price is high and so are it's calories. What fun is a sugar free, soy drink when you can have a Starbucks Peppermint White Mocha?!?!? Watch out though, the 16oz drink packs 540 calories into that cute cup along with 76 grams of sugar… three times your daily recommended allowance!
Is this like bread pudding? I like bread pudding. I don't think I've ever had plum pudding and that's good because it weighs in at a hefty 360 calories, 15 grams of fat and 30 grams of sugar!
Yummy meatballs! I like 'em all. You could call me an appetizer junky! Watch out for these though. With all of the bread, butter, cream and salty beef broth, they clock in at around 400 calories A PIECE! Yes, that is per meatball! Yikes!
