Health Guide for the Holidays

Don't let the holiday dinners pack on the pounds - here's the nutritional run down of the top 11 foods at your table.

An average slice of pecan has a little over 500 calories, while pumpkin boasts slightly over 300. The classic apple pie is right in between the two, coming in at a bit over 400 calories. All of them boast small quantities of several vitamins and minerals, except pumpkin pie, which has more than a full day’s worth of Vitamin A.
