10 Holiday Party-Food Dilemmas, Solved
Cheese and Crackers or Crudités and Dip?
The Better Choice: Crudités and DipA platter of nutrient-rich vegetables wins over a saturated fat-filled cheese board. But even here some offerings are better than others. "Favor colorful vegetables, like red peppers, carrots, and broccoli," suggests Kristine Clark, a registered dietitian and the director of sports nutrition at Penn State University, in State College, Pennsylvania. Filling your plate with such a mix guarantees that you're eating a wide variety of vitamins and antioxidants.
But… If the dip contains sour cream or mayonnaise, you'll be scooping up lots of extra calories and saturated fat along with every bite. So don't double-dip.
