Chinese New Year goodies come just once a year, but they are also calorie bombs that are laden with fat, sodium, and sugar. Deceptively tucked away in small bites, they are almost impossible to avoid during house visits.
To stay on track with your daily calorie needs, be mindful of what each serving of CNY goodies – from love letters to pineapple tarts – entails. If you’re worried about weight gain, it helps to up your activity level by doing fun workouts you love, which will also motivate you in the long haul.
