Calorie Contents of Your Favorite Foods

It’s no secret that when it comes to the holidays, we generally throw all caution to the wind. All bets are off in regards to our eating; even those with the strongest of dietary will power may succumb to plates of savory goodness. From mid November to mid January, between parties and family gatherings, the sweet treats and heavy savory meals are plentiful and calling our name at every corner. So, it should be no surprise that Americans, on average, gain one to two pounds during this time, according to Consumer Reports. But, alas, not all is lost in maintaining our waistline and engaging in our holiday treats. Knowledge is power; so, knowing the calorie contents of your favorite foods will help you know what is worth it and what may not be worth the extra helping!
