It’s important to be aware of what we’re putting into our bodies, especially if there’s a medical condition present. Holiday events almost always involve food, some of which is high in sugar, sodium, and empty calories. Try these tips to make sure your holidays are delicious and healthy!
1. Smart snacking
Before a holiday meal or party, eat a light snack like a salad or a piece of fruit to curb your appetite. You will be less tempted to over indulge.
2. Look before your choose.
Choose your favorite foods and skip your least favorite. Include vegetables and fruits to keep your plate balanced.
3. Eat until you are satisfied, not stuffed.
Savor your favorite holiday treats while eating small portions. Sit down, get comfortable, and enjoy.
4. Be careful with beverages.
Alcoholic and non-alcoholic holiday beverages can be full of calories and sugar. Make sure to limit yourself to one drink.
