For many people, holidays and family get-togethers are a time for celebration. But these celebrations often involve foods that are high in fat, sugar and calories and fall short on nutrition. With a few minor changes, however, special occasion foods can be both delicious and nutritious.
Here are some tips to keep you on the right track.
Avoid fast food. The holiday season can keep you on the go with little time to prepare meals. Fast food may be handy, but it’s often high in fat. Prepare and freeze quick, healthy meals ahead of time to stay out of the fast food trap.
Don’t go to a party hungry. Before you leave home, eat something light or drink a meal replacement shake. Also drink a great deal of water the day of the party.
Alcoholic beverages can pack on the calories; so if you’re drinking alcohol, choose a light beer or a champagne spritzer.
Offer to bring a low-calorie dish to holiday parties. Your host might appreciate it, and you’ll know that at least one healthy item will be on hand.
Just because it’s the holiday season doesn’t mean you should give yourself the license to eat everything in sight. If you’re staying with family or friends ask them if you can have a space in the refrigerator and keep foods on hand to snack on like lean deli meats, cottage cheese, non-fat cheese sticks, etc.
