Healthy Eating Tips For The Holiday Season

If you are trying to eat healthy this holiday season, keep reading as we are going to share some of our favourite healthy eating tips for the holidays that will help you make healthier food choices while still enjoying yourself this holiday season. 

Here Are Some Tips To Healthy Eating This Holiday Season:

Eat Your Vegetables-when filling your plate, reach for the vegetables first and try to avoid the vegetable dishes that are loaded with cream or cheese sauces. While still considered vegetables, the heavy sauces add a lot of fat and calories that you don’t need. Another tip is to eat your vegetable first, that way, if you do fill up, at least it will be with low calorie, high nutrition vegetables instead of carbs and fat. 

Take Your Time-take your time to savour every bite so your brain will have enough time to receive the signal that you are full. It can take up to 20 minutes for the brain to realise that you have overeaten and by then, it is too late.

Don’t Eat Just To Eat- during the holidays especially, many people will find that they aren’t eating because they are hungry, but because the food is there and others are doing it. Stop and ask yourself why you are eating and if it isn’t because you are hungry, stop eating. 

Don’t Skip Breakfast- eating breakfast is important as it provides your body with the nutrition it needs to get through the day. Skipping any mean can leave your body hungry and cause cravings to set in.

Limit Alcohol Intake- alcoholic drinks may contain hidden calories that your body doesn’t need so it is best to limit your alcohol intake or choose alcoholic beverages that are low in calories. 

Walk After Every Meal-just taking a short 15 to 20-minute walk after every meal will not only help aid digestion, but it can stabilise blood sugar levels and help burn off some of the excess calories you just ate.
