Eggnog

A typical cup of spiked eggnog will cost you about 350 calories per cup — that’s the equivalent of five sugar cookies! Here’s a quick trick to drive down calories in no time: simply mix ¾ cup store-bought or homemade eggnog with ¼ cup vanilla almond milk. This simple dilution tip will save you roughly 100 calories per serving.

If you’d like, spike it by adding a shot of rum. Cheers!

Mashed Potatoes

A cup of starchy spuds contains about 300 calories. Instead, try my revised recipe, which combines white potatoes with steamed cauliflower to drive down the calories and carbs in this comfort food favorite. It delivers big on flavor but for only half the calories. The end result is a creamy, dreamy, dish.
