But traditional holiday fare is often far from health-conscious. And while one or two sweet indulgences may not be detrimental to your waistline or long-term health, balance is key. Making healthier choices this holiday season could mean the difference between a satisfying treat and unbuttoned jeans. Watch on to learn about our top 6 desserts to avoid this season.. 1. Apple Pie Between the sugary filling and processed pie crust, this dessert can be somewhat of a wolf in sheep’s clothing. A typical slice of apple pie contains between 300 and 400 calories, 20 grams of fat and up to 20 grams of sugar — and that’s if you don’t go back for seconds! 2. Pecan Pie While this treat has been gracing holiday tables for decades - a single slice can contain more than 500 calories, 27 grams of fat and 31 grams of sugar. Ouch. Although the impressive calorie count could deter even the most passionate of pie lovers, the real danger here is the sugar and fat content. At around 300 calories, pumpkin pie is a better choice. 3. Cookies Where there’s an abundance of cookies, most don’t stick with just one. If portion control isn’t your strong suit, stick to healthier options like a handful of dark chocolate almonds, which can provide heart-healthy antioxidants. If you can’t help but give in to the call of the cookie, try making a batch yourself with healthy substitutions. 4. Fudge Chocolate lovers nationwide know that holiday season means fudge season. But at 5 grams of fat per ounce, if you’re unable to stick to a small serving, it may be wise to skip the fudge altogether and opt for chocolate frozen yogurt instead. 5. Cheesecake A typical piece of cheesecake contains more than 250 calories and a whopping 18 grams of fat. The danger in this dessert is the amount of saturated fat hiding in each slice — at almost 10 grams! While not all fat is bad, saturated fat can raise your cholesterol, which can increase your risk of heart disease and stroke. 6. Pumpkin Roll Pumpkin desserts are seasonal, so many indulge while they can on high-calorie, high-fat versions. But there’s a way to have your cake and eat it too — without cake even coming into the equation! Opt for pumpkin custard to get that sweet, seasonal taste. At around 200 calories per serving, this treat’s creamy texture will leave you satisfied. It can be easy for your diet goals to go out the window when you see plates of decadent holiday desserts. The key to making it to the new year in a healthy way lies in your habits. Stay active and make a healthy holiday plan - by going into the season with a plan, you’ll worry less about what’s on your plate and more about spending time with family and friends — which is the real reason for the season!
