Healthy for the Holidays

Many of you may be going to some holiday parties soon, and to avoid a growing gut, we've got some tips, which is for men, and women too.

Dieticians made a list for Men's Health magazine.  Here are a few appetizers you can eat:

Barbeque chicken wings, not the buffalo ones....Shrimp on a skewer, which is essentially fat-free...grab some Spinach triangles, high in antioxidants...and also good are Chicken on a skewer and Sushi.

Eat small amounts of the following:

Onion dip, and you're better off dipping with vegetables...Crab puffs, bad because of the cream and mayo...grab only one Pig-in-the-blanket...same for greasy mini Pizzas, both high in fat...and stop at three on Creamed Spinach pastries.

Nutritionists say avoid these at the party:

Cocktail Meatballs and Spring Rolls, both with much more fat than you think...and definitely no Mini Ham-and-Cheese Quiche, which they call the worst.

Email us with any ideas you have or something you want to hear about in our "For Men Only" reports, which are every weeknight on Fox 54 News at 10.
