4 Tips for Eating Healthy During the Holidays

The holidays are well underway, a time for special moments with family and friends and enjoying the holiday traditions that we’ve come to know. It’s difficult to not want to indulge in every sweet and treat surrounding us this time of year, and no doubt we should enjoy an indulgence now and then. When it’s all said and done, it’s all about self-control.

With an eye on our good health, we’ll feel good and stay healthy. Some tips that will make it easier to stay on that healthy track now, and year round, include making a few easy adjustments, allowing you to still enjoy those treasured holiday traditions, without falling off the “good health” wagon.

  1. Mindful eating is key. Decide what’s most important to you and enjoy that treat or family meal.
  2. At a buffet, try using a smaller plate, you’ll be more in control of portion size. Choose what’s very important and make those decisions mindfully.
  3. Research shows that our taste buds get saturated with a taste after about three bites, so you’ll get the same amount of satisfaction from those three bites of something, than if you were to eat an entire plateful.
  4. If it’s egg nog you love or any other calorie filled beverage, enjoy a cup or two over the season and be done with it, rather than having a gallon of it in your home, and chugging it all month long.

Decide what your favorite foods are, the ones you associate with the holiday, and make allowances for those foods, but don’t go overboard.

Putting on the brakes when those sinfully delicious treats are calling your name will make all the difference, not just during the holidays, but all year round.

Have a happy holiday season!
