Welcome to Day 7 of the Holiday Challenge!

On day 1 of the Holiday Challenge, I asked what your holiday food temptations were. The most common answers were cookies and eggnog.

Below are a couple healthier choice, lower calorie holiday recipes for you to try.

Holiday Spice Cut-Out Cookies

HungryGirls No-Nonsense Nog

Do you have any low fat/low calorie holiday recipes to share?

Do you make low fat/low calorie treats during the holidays?

I always offer frozen berries with Cool Whip as a dessert on holidays as an alternative to the typical high calorie fare.  It's hard to watch your diet when everyone else has something good to eat.  I layer into champagne glasses frozen mixed berries, and alternate with Cool Whip to make low calorie healthy parfait.

I don't make low fat treats but I stock up on veggies & fruits so I can make a quick veggie/fruit platter on a whim and I count calories.

Fat's not the enemy...sugar is. Fat actually enhances flavor, so I'm not going to look for recipes to make low-fat treats that use chemical substitutes in place of real food.

I will exercise restraint, instead.

I like this idea, subbing real whipped cream for the Cool Whip.
