The Holiday season is just around the corner! Seems like just yesterday we all made those ‘New Year’ resolutions to cut back on soda, eat healthier, and get to the gym! If you’re like me and have been struggling with life getting in the way of your workout routine, the holidays will just make it worse. So watch your portions. Most holiday meals contain healthy sets of foods and even if you’re not cooking, you can still eat well!
If you’re cooking, try your best to give your family and friends good health choices along with the foods you love! Ham, Turkey, Green beans, whole wheat rolls, corn, carrots, potatoes and many other health types of food can cover your table making a great, health meal! Do some research on healthy meal combinations and alternatives to traditional Holiday meals!
If you’re not cooking, remember this simple rule: Protein, Vegetable and Carbs. Usually you have your choice to make your own plate around the holidays, so try to get you’re helping of veggies, meats and breads. This doesn’t mean that you can eat all you want either. By limiting your intake and stopping after one plate of food you can keep from gaining unnecessary weight. Try your best to only give yourself ONE desert per meal. Again, if your family is like mine we have about forty-thousand deserts per meal. By limiting your sugar intake you will also help to keep those pounds off!
