As I was reviewing my holiday checklist today, I started planning my holiday menus and meals for the next several weeks as part of my holiday plan. And I thought that I would share some healthy holiday eating tips with you.
I know that the holidays seem like a permission slip to overindulge with food and drink. It is hard to turn down treats that may only be prepared once a year or as part of a family tradition. You can enjoy holiday foods and drink by, again, planning and employing some of these tips:
• Eat mindfully.
• Practice portion control.
• Keep hydrated.
• Don’t skip any meals.
• Eat only when hungry and stop when 80% full.
• Plan menus and prepare food ahead.
• Have a plan for food consumption prior to attending a party.
By using these tips, you will be able to eat, drink and be merry this holiday.
