The Holidays are Here!

Healthy Eating Tips for Holidays Gatherings….

Holidays can be a very fun time full of family and friends, and often revolve around food.  This can be a challenge for those trying to lose or even maintain their weight through the off-season.  You can still avoid the typical holiday weight gain while celebrating with everyone else!  When going to a holiday gathering, keep the following in mind:

Never go Hungry:

Be sure to eat a small healthy snack before going to a gathering or waiting for a holiday meal.  This will help prevent you from over-eating…

Include 10-20 grams protein, high fiber grains, and some veggies/fruit for a satisfying pre-meal.

Examples:

 Salad topped with tuna and white beans and light dressing
 Small whole grain tortilla filled with lean meats and veggies
 Shelled edamame steamed with cauliflower and broccoli
 Green smoothie
 Greek yogurt topped with small amount of granola or muesli
 Poached egg sandwich on 1/2 whole wheat English muffin with spinach and roasted peppers

Spread the Happiness:

Bring something deliciously healthy to share with everyone!

Examples:

Cheve or other cheese with French bread or your favorite crackers
Hummus with veggies and whole grain crackers/matza
Baked spiced sweet potatoes
Charcuterie plate or smoked salmon plate
Pumpkin or sweet potato pie/cookies
Salad topped with dried cranberries and pumpkin seeds
Tropical fruit salad
Rice pudding

Plateful of Ideas:

Fill your plate with the healthiest offerings first.  Then, selectively choose small amounts of the more calorie dense items (the “treats”) to garnish the meal.
Concentrate on your meal when you are eating it.  Bite, chew fully, and assess the food to see if you like it.  You can even discuss flavors with your buddy, or complement the chef- “does this have cinnamon in it?  It’s fantastic!”
