Cookies and Milk at every home: A snack for Santa???

Changing to a healthy diet is almost as difficult to do as giving up the smoking addiction. Traditionally people put out cookies and milk for Santa and according to my friend, Dr. Alvin F. Poussaint; those are high calorie, high sugar and high fat foods. If you or the children want to leave Santa a wonderful snack, according to my friend, Dr. Barry Sears, try these:

Deviled eggs with hummus
2 egg whites hard boiled, yolks discarded
4 TBLS hummus
Paprika to taste
Slice the eggs in half (discard yolks) and fill each egg white half with one-fourth of the hummus and top with paprika to taste

One 6 oz glass of 2% milk (no side of cookies)

1 oz turkey breast, 10 grapes, 4 almonds

Veggies & Cottage cheese
¼ cup low-fat cottage cheese
½ tsp extra virgin olive oil
¼ tsp black pepper
10 green beans cut into ½ inch pieces
8 cherry tomatoes, halved
Stir the extra virgin olive oil into the cottage cheese with the pepper, beans and tomatoes

Tuna with Hummus
1 oz canned tuna packed in water
¼ cup hummus
Drain the tuna fish and mix with the hummus

Cottage cheese & Fruit
¼ cup low-fat cottage cheese
½ an apple OR ½ an orange OR 1 kiwi
1 macadamia nut OR 3 almonds

(For the cosmopolitan Santa) 1 oz piece of cheese and 4 oz red wine
