We put two versions of classic holiday apps, cocktails, and desserts side-by-side to see if our editors and fitness experts could decipher between the full-fat and "healthy" recipes. (The results are pretty hilarious!)
Let's face it: Some holiday party foods are just too good to give up. The good news: There are tons of healthy variations out there on all your favorite apps, cocktails, and desserts (yes, even rich and creamy egg nog and spinach and artichoke dip!). Better yet, you might not even be able tell the difference between the lower-cal recipe and the classic, full-fat version! OK, we admit it, you might be able to tell the difference if you put each side-by-side (our taste testers were pretty darn good!), but for those situations when you just can't cut out any of your favorite holiday treats and still want to fit into your clothes post-New Year's, these healthy recipe variations on the calorie-packed originals should do the trick.
