Don’t Be a Cocktail Weenie

Hors d’oeuvres may seem safe because they’re tiny, but eating a plateful could equal the fat and calories of three trips to the Chinese buffet. So this time of year, when you’re on your way to holiday party number 14, be careful selecting what to eat. Just because it says "mini" sausage and cheese quiche, doesn’t mean the fat and calorie damage is minimal. Even the Hummer has a mini version, but that doesn’t mean it’s small in size or cash. See below for nutritional information on 16 types of hors d’oeuvres. Beware of anything that’s creamed, puffed, fried, or has the word pig in it. Stick to the cocktail shrimp, vegetable platter, anything that’s grilled, baked, or smoked. If you behave this well throughout the season, Santa may just bring you a mini version of yourself for the New Year.
