Planning Your Holiday Menus
With Thanksgiving just barely behind us it’s hard to imagine in a matter of weeks Christmas and Hanukkah will be upon us!
The holidays bring more time with family and loved ones, more traditions, more memories, and of course… more food! If you’re still stuffed from the stuffing and if that turkey-tired hasn’t quite worn off, you may be considering ways to make the next month as painless on the waistline as possible. The bad news is – candy & cookies are never going to be calorie-free, but the good news is that there are tons of better-for-you options to pick from as you set your holiday menu.
Nibblers: Instead of Spinach Artichoke Dip which has 9 grams of fat and 100 calories per 2-tbs serving, reach for the salsa with 0 fat and just 10 calories per serving.
Sides: Sweet potato casserole is delicious, but with 11 grams of fat and 379 calories per 3/4 cup serving it might be worth passing on and replacing with garlic mashed potatoes for just 4 grams of fat and 170 calories per serving.
The Main Event: Everyone loves a good Prime Rib (including and especially us!), but if you want to keep your Spinach Artichoke Dip and Sweet Potatoes, swapping it for Skinless Smoked Turkey will save you 53.5 grams of fat and 444 calories per 6-ounce serving.
The Sweet Stuff: Can’t decide if you should cut a piece of Pecan, Pumpkin or both?? Pumpkin pie has 1/3 the fat of pecan and 60% less calories — WOW! You could almost have TWO pieces of pumpkin! (We won’t tell!)
Still need a gift for the neighbors? Whip up a batch of homemade Baileys Irish Cream and voila!
- 1 2/3 Cups good Irish whiskey (Jameson is a nice pick)
- 1 Cup heavy cream
- 1 (14 oz.) Can fat free sweetened condensed milk
- 2 Tablespoons Hershey’s chocolate syrup
- 2 Teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 Tablespoons cold coffee
Place all ingredients in a blender or high for 20 seconds and transfer to airtight containers. Kerr canning jars from Walmart with a bow around the neck make for a festive presentation.
This makes 4 pints and will keep in the fridge for up to two months! Never be empty handed when a neighbor pops over again — this is too easy!

Everyone knows the cold grey months of winter are notorious for making a homebody of even the most social butterflies. Let’s face it – staying in and cozying up by the fire almost always sounds better than stacking on layers of itchy sweaters and venturing out into the cold. We all complain about feeling more lethargic in the winter, but for many the winter months only accentuate the exhaustion and lethargy experience year-round despite getting plenty of shut-eye. So what’s up with that?
Depending on who you ask you could get a dozen different explanations for your sleepy nature, but at the end of the day most people are able to perk up if they make a couple of simple lifestyle changes.
1. “I’m too tired to work out…” we’ve all said it before, and while preserving our energy may seem like the logical route for having more of it, studies prove the opposite is true. Regular exercise boosts strength, endurance, and your mood as it improves your cardiovascular system, and delivers increased oxygen and nutrients to your tissues. Adding 20 minutes of light exercise to your schedule 3 times a week may be a great way for you to tackle your sleepiness.
2. Another culprit you may want to investigate in your quest to find energy is your diet. If you’re a sucker for sweets and simple carbs your sugar highs are likely to blame for your energy lows. To reduce drowsiness, make an effort to keep blood sugar steady by enjoying a lean protein along with a whole grain at every meal. Good choices include baked or grilled chicken and brown rice, salmon and sweet potato, or salad with chicken and fruit.
3. If you aren’t getting enough iron in your diet you may experience sluggishness, irritability, weakness, and an inability to focus since less oxygen is traveling to your muscles and cells. Increase your iron intake with lean beef, kidney beans, tofu, eggs, dark green leafy vegetables, nuts, and peanut butter, and pair them with a good source of vitamin C. If you think you may have an iron deficiency you should consult a physician.
