How many calories do our Christmas sweets load? Melomakarona, curabies, dumplings, basil pie… And only in the thought of Christmas sweets does the appetite open and the craving for a mouthful becomes a must!
However, like all good things in life, these delicious pastries also have a cost. Along with the other Christmas tableware, these sweets may do harm to our silhouette.
So if you had to choose between molasses and curabies, what is the healthiest?
So look at how many calories your favorite Christmas sweets contain.
Curry has a lot of calories and is quite fat, especially saturated, which is considered harmful to the cardiovascular system.
Specifically, a sour cream weighing about 40 grams. contains 240 calories and 9.2 g of fat.
Of course, people aren’t spoiled if you eat a few cookies this year, but they should be eaten in moderation.
Melomakarona is potentially healthier than curabies.
When prepared with olive oil and not with butter, they contain less saturated fat.
A melomakarona weighing about 35 gr. It contains 190 calories and 8 grams of fat.
Dipples have almost half the fat compared to melomakarona and curabies.
One side (45 g) has 170 calories and 4.5 g. fat.
If, in fact, olive oil and not seed oil were used for their production, then you would boost your body with monounsaturated fatty acids.
Which one is healthier: broiled pie or cake?
The best choice is the raspberry pie as it has 50% less butter and contains antioxidant ingredients (maple, mastic, and anise).
In contrast, cake-based basil is made with a lot of butter and a lot of eggs, resulting in a high-calorie value with a lot of fat, mostly saturated.
By comparison: One slice of biscuit (80g) has 255 calories and 7.5g of fat, while one slice of cake (100g) has 350 calories and 20g. fat.
At the holidays, we always eat chocolates. Some of them are healthier, some are not.
Chocolates from genuine raspberries are probably the only sweets that dieters recommend because they are rich in beneficial antioxidants.
The dark chocolate content of stearic acid, which has the potential to metabolize the body as a beneficial monounsaturated fatty acid, makes it healthier than all festive sweets.
One chocolate (20g) contains 110 calories and only 6.5g. fats.
Trunk with chocolate or chestnut
Both chocolate cake and chocolate trunk are characterized by expert dietitians as caloric “bombs” because of the many fats they contain.
A 100g portion contains 430 calories and 32g. fat.
The chestnut trunk contains fewer calories while it is considered healthy as it contains trace elements and fiber from the chestnuts.
Nevertheless, it remains a high-calorie sweet, as a piece has 370 calories and 19 grams. fat.
A particularly sweet winter is the chestnuts in sugar syrup (maroon glaze).
They are low in fat and have a lower calorie value than other sweets. Chestnuts are also rich in fiber and trace elements.
Forty grams of maroon glaze contains about 75 calories and almost no fat.
Finally, panettone is an overproduction of brioche, stuffed with raisins, fruits, and nuts.
With all these ingredients, it makes sense to be full of fat.
One-piece (115 g) contains 405 calories and 18 g. fat.
