"Eat This, Not That" for the Holidays

This from Men's Health. Looks like they got the "Holiday Coffee" wrong. They say to eat a Starbucks Venti Gingerbread Latte (400 calories, 15 g fat) and not a Starbucks Venti Peppermint Cafe Au Lait (170 calories, 5 g fat). Nonetheless, there are also quite a few links to other "Eat This, Not That" and "Best & Worst" items that may be of interest.

Holiday coffee drinks are some of the worst things you'll find at Starbucks, or any java junction for that matter. You can suck up nearly a quarter or more of your day's calorie allotment without even unhinging your jaw. . . .

Short of a tall glass of melted butter, it’s hard to find a more caloric beverage than egg nog. Heavy cream, egg yolks and a heavy hit of sugar spell disaster for this Yuletide favorite. Hot chocolate, by comparison, is a very reasonable indulgence.
