5 Strategies to Eat Healthy During the Holidays
Before You Chow Down, Read Up on These Tips
The holidays are upon us, and with that the delectable pies, turkey, mashed potatoes and cocktails. While it is important to celebrate time with friends and family (and food!) it is also key to know how to fit into your pants the next day. Read on for 5 ways on how to eat healthy your next feast.
When we skip meals, we starve ourselves, slowing our metabolism and making the next food we see a rule instead of an option. Do yourself a favor and eat before the big meal. This means a fiber and protein-fueled breakfast that will keep you satisfied until you can coherently choose what goes on your plate when dinner time rolls around.
Keep your plate colorful, but ensure you get healthy proteins like lean meats, fish, poultry and quinoa. Protein will keep your tummy satisfied while you load up on veggies and other goods. Be aware of calorie-ridden sauces.
Bring on the Veggies
Veggies should be the main component of your plate. Try to consume them before digging into the starchy potatoes and stuffing. If you are attending a potluck, bring nutrient-rich dishes like Brussels sprouts, zucchini or roasted asparagus, which will be a healthy hit.
Move & Groove
Find new ways to get outside, whether it be a game of touch football with family and friends or a self-reflective brisk walk. Post-meal is the right time to do this in order to help stabilize blood sugar and assist with digestion. (Sorry couch.)
Enjoy Each Bite
When it comes to eating your favorite foods, pace yourself, and enjoyyy them. It has been proven that it takes around 20 minutes for your brain to process that your tummy is full, meaning taking your time is key to not overeating.
