We all enjoy indulging in holiday treats this time of year, and there is nothing wrong with having a few splurges throughout the season. However, too many of those splurges can leave us with regrets come New Year's. Rather than give up holiday treats altogether, I like making smart swaps that satisfy my cravings and save calories too! ...

...Here are 6 of my favorite holiday sweet swaps!

1. Do you love mint chocolate chip ice cream? Then try a mint chocolate chip protein bar instead, such as a LUNA Mint Chocolate Chip Protein bar. The protein and fiber in the bar will keep you feeling satisfied longer than the ice cream, and the mint chocolate flavor will satisfy this craving while saving 100 calories!

2. Do candy canes make it hard to stay away from the sweets jar this time of year? Instead, reach for peppermint tea. Peppermint tea has that same great peppermint flavor for zero calories. Plus it's a great warm option for a cold day! Switching from the candy to the tea will save you 60 calories and 14g of sugar.

3. Is creamy eggnog your holiday drink of choice? Then you'll want to try a healthier nog option, such as Silk Nog. It's just as rich and creamy as traditional eggnog, but it's made from soy milk, so it'll save you 100 calories and 10g of fat per serving!

4. If nothing says Christmas like gingerbread to you, you may want to try swapping traditional gingerbread cookies for ginger snaps. These crispy cousins of gingerbread have that distinctive sweet, ginger flavor, but have about 80 less calories per serving!

5. Love peanut brittle? Well, you're in luck! SELF has cooked up an awesome pistachio brittle recipe for you this season (pictured above). Pistachios make this a great alternative to traditional peanut brittle, and this recipe cuts the calories in half! That's a savings of 242 calories per serving!

6. Can't get enough of your favorite Christmas cake? Whether it's red velvet, spice cake, or devil's food, turning your favorite cake into cupcakes will keep the portions easier to control. Plus, on average 1 cupcake will have 60 fewer calories than one slice of cake!
 

New Products for Chirstmas - Women: A bit of advice for the Men who love them

Being a female and after looking at certain websites gift ideas for women....Guys Be Smart!!!!!, just ask your lady what she wants for Christmas!!!  Save yourself the wrath of her disappointment for what Santa didn't bring!!!!

Some women of today don't want kitchen items, or home spa crap that will break within the year......I mean seriously nothing says "Get on the griddle bitch" like giving your signifcant other a kitchen appliance!  Okay that may put you in the dog house when she wanted JEWELRY!

I personally LOVE the kitchen gadgets, but then again, I'm an old school girl who LOVES to be in the kitchen!  My husband is always safe, he lets me choose what I want and then purchases it. 

I know some women who on the presentation of a kitchen appliance have gone beserk!  "I wanted that ring from Tiffany's you jerk"!  Okay, yes they are spoiled, and some are pretty useless!  LOL!!!!  But it is better to be safe than sorry when you get that rolling pin across your noggin!  LOL!!!!!

Make your Christmas season a bit more bearable!  ;0)
