Staying healthy and fit during the holidays is a noble goal, but groaning tables filled with traditionally rich foods will set you back and then some. But that doesn't mean you have to avoid holiday meal get-togethers. You just have to make choices in line with your way of eating. The best way to do that is to stick to the leaner, lighter fare like turkey, salads, roasted vegetables and fruity desserts, and pass on these traditional holiday foods.
Cheesecakes show up at every holiday meal, but they're available year-round. So don't throw away your day's calories on a single slice.
