December is Safe Toys and Gifts Month

This Month's Health Tip:

eggnog

Recipe for Healthier Eggnog

Replacing cream with evaporaed skim milk and eggs with egg substitutes cuts the fat by roughly 90% and the calories by about half per serving. Egg substitutes, which are pasteurized, are also a safer alternative to raw eggs.

  • 1 1/2 cups egg substitute (equivalent of 6 eggs)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmet
  • 2 cups evaporated skim milk
  • 2 cups low-fat or skim milk

Refrigerate liquids in advance. Beat the egg substitute for 2 or 3 minutes with an electric mixer at medium speed until very frothy. Gradually beat in the sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. Stir in the milk by hand. Chill before serving. Let guests add their own rum or brandy or a sprinkle of nutmeg, if desired. Yield: About six cups.

December's Poll

    Do you prefer a large serving of a low-fat food, or a small serving of a hi-fat food?

    • I always prefer a small serving of the hi-fat food
    • I usually prefer the smaller serving of the hi-fat food, but not for some foods
    • I'm 50/50 on it, depends on the food or my mood
    • I usually prefer the larger serving of a low-fat food
    • I always go for bigger portions of lower fat food
    • Small serving? Of something I like? You must be delusional!
