Holiday Eating

Since the Holiday season is upon us, it is important to remember to eat healthy. Here are some tips from an article called, “9 Healthy Holiday-Eating Strategies“.

  • Bring a healthy dish to a holiday dinner: Substitute vegetables to eat with your dip instead of chips or bread pieces
  • Find time to exercise: during your break find time keep up with your exercise routine to at least maintain your current weight
  • Don’t over eat until you are stuffed: pick your favorite foods to eat first instead of putting every thing on the buffet line onto your dinner plate.
  • Be mindful of your beverages: avoid drinking too much alcohol and soda because of the high sugar content
  • Don’t skip meals: if you overeat at one meal, remember to go light on the next one.

In my personal experience, I try to follow these guidelines as well. For example, I made a buffalo chicken dip as an appetizer for Thanksgiving. Instead of serving the dips with chips, I used cut up celery, peppers and carrots.

It’s not always easy to keep up with an exercise routine during the holiday season because of the cold and bad weather. However, I try to maintain the same weight instead of focusing on losing weight.
