You Eat Creamed Spinach

Creamed spinach, green bean casserole, and candied yams are veggies so they must be good for you, right? Not exactly: While antioxidant-rich produce makes up the main components of these dishes, they are overwhelmed with high-fat and/or high-sugar add-ons.

Creamed spinach can contain up to 75% of your saturated fat for the day; green bean casserole—made with butter, cheese, salt, and fried onions—can have up to 800 calories a batch; and candied yams have up to 38 grams of sugar per serving! (Stay away from fruitcake, while you're at it: One slice can have more than 400 calories!)
