Making you Holiday's Sweet [calorie-free]

Did you know that seasonings can add sweetness to some of your holiday foods without the extra sugar and calories?
Allspice, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger, mace and nutmeg make great additions to holiday foods.

Incoporating them into your diet:
  • Try adding ginger to a fruit glaze
  • Blend frozen raspberries with a pinch of ginger and a small amount of fruit-juice concentrate and toss the glaze with fresh berries or sliced fruit.
  • For a warm treat, add a cinnamon stick to your coffee grounds before brewing
  • Top with nonfat or low-fat whipped topping and a sprinkle of shaved chocolate and enjoy!
