Healthy Eating Tips for the Holidays

December 18, 2017 |

Enjoy holiday food in small quantities!

Holiday eating can take its toll on even the healthiest among us. You don’t have to skip holiday parties. Here are a number of ways to help you make more moderate choices that will keep those extra pounds from piling up:

  • Eat smaller meals rather than “saving” yourself for that special holiday meal, where you are likely to overeat.
  • Plan a workout before a holiday party or big meal.
  • Take advantage of “nutritionally dense” holiday foods like pumpkin, cranberries, turkey, sweet potatoes and chestnuts.
  • Eat slowly.
  • Offer to bring a healthy dish to holiday parties.
  • When you cook, try recipe modification like substituting applesauce for oil.
  • Get a plate instead of “hanging out” at the appetizer table at a party.
