Indulgent bites: Holiday appetizers

December 18, 2013
By Katie Koerner , Marshall Independent

Holidays are a time to treat yourself and loved ones to delicious homemade dishes, but New Year's resolutions can pressure people to stick to a restrictive diet or avoid yummy treats that might pack on pounds. Depriving yourself of treats during the holiday season can actually lead to more weight gain than the gain for people who do not restrict themselves, according to a 2008 study in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology. This season, indulge in these low-calorie bite-size appetizers (recipes below). Just one will leave you satisfied without feeling like you let down your New Year's resolution. Plus, the salmon cucumber cups contain essential fats to keep you healthy this holiday season. The American Heart Association recommends eating two servings of fish, such as salmon and tuna, each week to decrease risk of cardiovascular disease.
