Have Your Cake and Eat it Too with “Skinny Mini Holiday Desserts”

Indulge in Moderation Without Giving Up Sweet Treats You Love

Chicago, November 01, 2012 – The dessert table can be your worst enemy during the holidays, but it doesn’t have to be. Indulgence and moderation go hand-in-hand with CanolaInfo’s “Skinny Mini Holiday Desserts” Recipe Collection. Now you can have your cake and eat it, too!

“It isn’t necessary to feel deprived of your favorite holiday desserts,” says Cheryl Toner, M.S., R.D. “Instead, shift your thinking about how much is enough. When you are living an active, healthy lifestyle most days of the year, there is room for a small holiday treat.”

CanolaInfo’s “Skinny Mini Holiday Desserts” Recipe Collection takes care of portion control for you. It features bite-sized indulgences to limit calories, while giving your sweet tooth the craving it seeks.

“Keep in mind that you don’t need to eat a whole piece of pie or chocolate bar in order to satisfy your appetite,” says Toner. “Have a small bite, slow down, and savor it. The skinny mini desserts offer just the right amount of holiday indulgence without guilt.”

Each skinny mini dessert recipe contains 200 calories or less per serving and is made with canola oil, which has the least saturated fat and most omega-3 fat of all common culinary oils. This oil keeps the saturated fat levels low (2.5 grams or less per dessert serving). Recipes include:

“Classic holiday ingredients used in these recipes like chocolate, cherries, dates, ginger, pumpkin and peppermint will ring in the season,” says Toner. “Enjoy the flavors, as well as the sights, sounds and joy of the season.”

The complete “Skinny Mini Holiday Desserts” Recipe Collection is available at CanolaInfo.org.
