CELEBRATE THE HOLIDAYS WITH A NUTRITIOUS TWIST

Food and drink splurges at holiday parties are hard to resist – but is it worth it? Probably not. A little indulgence over the holiday season is part of the fun, as long as you practice some moderation and try to stay active during the winter months.

Here are some suggestions for eating healthy during the holidays:

  • Do not skip meals in preparation for a holiday party, which can result in overeating later.
  • Use a smaller plate to avoid overeating, and fill your plate with vegetables or a salad before loading it with entrees or dessert.
  • Go for a walk after a large meal to burn a few extra calories and to promote healthy digestion.

Using this approach will allow you to maintain a healthful nutrition plan during the time of the year when it is most challenging to do so! For more guidance on healthy eating during the holidays, contact our registered dietitian for help.
