Being healthy doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the holidays! However, there are a few things you can put into practice to balance reaching your wellness goals through the endless spreads of deliciousness.
1. Enjoy the foods you do choose to eat! Eating with guilt not only adds stress, but defeats the purpose of eating those things in the first place. Savor every bite – make it count!
2. Choose small portions. You can have a little bit of everything – and you won’t feel you’re missing out if you refer to number 1 😉 sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, turkey, ham, stuffing… yummm.
3. It may work best to narrow down your options to one or a few. You don’t need every cookie, just pick the most delicious, best looking one. Cookies are definitely my weakness! 🍪
I think it’s safe to say, one of the most challenging things for everyone through the holidays – regardless of what your wellness goals are – is not to eat too much sugar. Choose carefully & make it count.
Though there may be challenges, it really is so important to e n j o y your wellness journey – this is all about living!
