You CAN have a drink and eat dessert, without letting yourself go this Christmas/New Year’s. We compare the macros in some of your go-to holiday treats – so you can make the smartest choice and stick to your goals, without missing out on the fun.
ROAST HAM vs TURKEY BREAST
We don’t have any issues with a good quality glazed ham, but juicy turkey breast is the cleaner option and wins in the protein department. Check out the top-rated turkey meals on the MACROS menu.
GIN & TONIC vs DRY CHAMPAGNE
In case you didn’t know, your G&T is full of added sugar. Have your gin with soda water instead of sugary tonic water to keep the carbs down. Or go for Brut/Extra Brut champas instead; the dryer the champas, the lower the carbs. Check out these other MACROS-friendly drink options.
MINCE PIE vs RUM BALL
If you love a Chrissy treat but want to keep the calories down, a rum ball is your best (Now the challenge is to stick to just one!).
PAVLOVA vs CHRISTMAS CAKE
Yikes! Neither one’s ideal if you’re trying to cut calories, so pick your fave one, make it your once-a-year holiday treat and savour every bite. Pro-tip: serve your pav with unsweetened Greek yoghurt instead of cream to significantly slash the calories and fat. Or, whip up one of these festive and MACROS-friendly desserts that don’t taste like diet food.
