The holiday season is the time for parties, festive events, and time with families. During the month of December, you’ll often indulge in treats and lose sight of your health goals. Fortunately, it’s pretty easy to eat healthy during the holidays by following these tips and recipe suggestions.

  1. Remember the holiday is just a normal day. Don’t avoid breakfast and lunch so you can binge on dinner and dessert.
  2. Try having a protein-rich snack one hour before the big holiday meal.
  3. Plan to have some healthy options on the holiday table. There are some links to recipes below.
  4. Check out all the options before you load your plate. Be smart about your choices.
  5. Set a goal, or a limit, and stick to it by sharing it with someone else at the table or writing it down.
  6. You should always have soup, vegetables, or a salad as the first course. It should help curb the craving cycle.
  7. Make sure to finish two glasses of water, preferably with lemon, after the meal.
  8. Have something planned for the after the meal with your friends or family members: a game, cleaning up, a walk…
  9. Eat mindfully, meaning take deep breaths, contribute to a conversation, put your fork down while you chew.
  10. Make sure you enjoy every bite.

Enjoy yummy food while still eating healthy by preparing one of these recipes for a special feast or potluck.
