Nog Heaven!
It's BAAA-AACK! We couldn't resist serving up our insanely great eggnog recipe now that the holidays are here again. True, there are a few good packaged nogs out there. First there was Silk Nog -- great stuff with less than half the calories of regular eggnog. Then along came Vitasoy with Holly Nog -- another delicious, guilt-free version. And while we love those, Hungry Girl's super-easy, make-at-home version has just 88 calories per 8-oz. serving!!! And it is super-thick & creamy and tastes as good as the real thing (trust us -- we've now tested it out on 213 people!). So dust off that blender of yours and go NOG WILD!

5 cups 8th Continent Light Vanilla Soymilk (or another light vanilla soymilk**)
1 small (4-serving) package Jell-O Sugar Free Fat Free Instant Pudding mix, Vanilla
6 no-calorie sweetener packets (like Splenda)
1 tsp. rum extract or imitation rum extract
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

In a blender, combine all ingredients and blend on high until mixed thoroughly. Refrigerate for a few hours to allow it to thicken. Makes five 1-cup servings!

HG Alternative! For some "over 21" eggnog, add 5 ounces of rum to the recipe. With 153 calories and a POINTS® value of 3* per serving, that's WAY better than an ordinary eggnog cocktail!

Bad Egg
460 calories and 20 grams of fat for a cup of anything is just ludicrous. Only a fettuccini alfredo shake could rival those frightening nutritionals (um, don't get any ideas!). Alta Dena's Holiday Eggnog is a big fat no-no. This stuff is a thick, gloppy mess. And that's without rum. If you decide to get a little nutty and spike the stuff with alcohol, don't forget to tack on an extra 65 calories or so for each ounce you add. Eeeek! Skip this nasty nog and whip up some of HG's No-Nonsense Nog instead. Even WITH alcohol, ours is a total calorie bargain. (And by the way, don't be fooled by Alta Dena's so-called "lite" eggnog. It still has 340 calories per cup. No thanks.)

December is National Fruitcake Month. Fruitcake, while well known, is not very popular with most humans. It's also super-high in calories & fat. Celebrate with a yummy, fruit-packed Fiber Cake instead!
