How much does a cookie weigh? Calorie table Christmas cookies



High-calorie Christmas dinner we can somehow replace with a healthy menu. This is often not the case with Christmas cookies. We all love sweet, Christmas cookies smells tempting and tastes very good. Whether in the supermarket or in the office, on the living room table at home, or at the Christmas market – everywhere smells like delicious Christmas cookies, and all agree – no vegan cake smells like that! In fact, they do not contain so many calories – according to the calorie chart, 40 grams of gingerbread bring about 150 kcal. That’s not much, but it’s the same with cookies as it is with pizza and chips. It stays   not at a bite. And let’s count 5 gingerbread a day – 750 kcal! That’s another matter and certainly not healthy. What is the conclusion? Eat what you want, but less.

For those of you who like to stand at the barbecue, we have to say that Currywurst is an absolute calorie bomb. An alternative that you will find at the Christmas market is a fish roll with matjes. If it’s about something sweet after the grilled food, then the fried almonds are an absolute must. Unfortunately, they contain many calories and sugars. A lighter alternative is the chestnuts, which are rich in protein. Good choices at the Christmas market are the chestnuts and chocolate kisses. If you really want to eat crepes at the Christmas market, then you better choose cinnamon and sugar instead of nutella. Not only to eat, but also to drink can be found on the Christmas market. The absolute calorie bombs include eggnog and mulled wine. How much calories do the other alcoholic drinks that we consume during the Christmas period be found in the calorie chart below.
