4 out of 7 - which seems to be the norm, for some reason. though, I have to say, some of those were tricky.

4/7--Ouch! But I find it hard to believe that "regular" mashed potatoes are healthier than mashed sweet potatoes, although I'm really, really glad...I HATE sweet potatoes!

Not so hot --4/7. BUT~ knowing how the choices were prepared would've helped, I think... as, we don't put a ton of butter in our mashed 'taters, for example. And I never eat green bean casserole ( Mom never made it, so I don't, you see?). I do eat meat, though!

Getting a good score wasn't the goal, though, was it? Getting the info was, and that I did!

Do whatever He tells you.

Yeah, 2/7. I'm terrible.

But I've been a vegetarian for 15 years, just recently started eating fish--so those meat questions were shooting into the dark.

Not too bad . 4 out of 7. I thought I remembered reading somewhere that sweetpotatoes were pretty healthy. Maybe it's all the stuff most people add to them. In any event it's all good to know.

I agree with those who think that word "home made" can be deceiving. There are so many recipes for home made stuff, some have adjusted their old recipes into healthier way etc... So that can be misleading, both ways.

4 out of 7 here, but I stand by two of my choices. I would take mashed sweet potatoes over regular mashed potatoes, I don't add anything to them. And I would take cranberry sauce over gravy, sugar or no sugar, it has to have more nutrients, especially if you use whole berry. I don't think calories is the bottom line all the time. I got the drink one wrong too, but for me I'd take coffee, I drink mine black :-)

Only got 3 out of 7 but I'd like to think that at least part of this is because everyone's "home made" is different. The low fat gravy that you buy is definately lighter than my "thin gravy"

I got 4 out of 7, which is surprising for me as these are not our Holiday special foods (except the ham which we eat at Christmastime). Maybe I'm learning to see what is what, which is ok to eat and which isn't so much ok... I hope I'll keep that sense in mind when Christmas comes...

Hi Everyone

Sorry for the delay, but the problem with the quiz has been fixed. If you use IE and were having trouble viewing it, you should be all set now.

Sorry about that!

Thanks,

Coach Jen

well, 4/7 isn't great, but I second-guessed myself on 2, and they involved items I don't ever eat, so I'm feeling okay about it. And I'm thrilled to have figured out the secret to actually ACCESSING the quiz - I didn't need Mozilla, I just copied and pasted the link into my browser. YAY!!

I finally got on - 6/7 WOW, just goes to show that although I know in my head what the right choices are, I still need to work on making the right choices when the food is actually in front of me!

I got 4 out of 7 and was surprised. I had to try twice as the first time I got through the first two and then had no answer choices show up for the third question. But the second time around, all the questions showed the answer choices and I completed it. I was honest too - I had missed the potato question (since sweet potatoes are healthier than other potatoes) and I kept to my answer the second time around. : )

As I meet weight loss goals, I get to purchase items in My Favorites at the SparkPeople Store:

Hey Everyone,

If you are using IE, there seems to be the issues with not seeing the responses, but if you switch to Mozilla Firefox the problem should be resolved. I hope this helps!

I got only 3 right too... Being mostly vegetarian, I don't eat turkey, ham or gravy... guessed cranberry over gravy, as I would never put gravy on my plate... And for those potatoes, when I make sweet mashed potatoes they don't have milk or butter in them, but regular mashed potatoes do....

I got 5 out 7 right. I chose the mashed sweet potatoes over the *normal* mashed potatoes because I don't add anything to mashed sweet potatoes myself. I also goofed on the cranberry sauce; I don't like the stuff myself...

Hi Coach Jen -

Tried to take the quiz but the answer options on the first question do not show up, on my computer anyway. I went to the page both through your link and then again directly through the Healthy Lifestyle tab but had the same result both ways.

FYI in case this is a glitch in the system. May be just my computer but just in case I wanted to let you know.

Thanks.
