3 Simple Suggestions for a Healthy Holiday
by Zoe Eisenberg
Let’s be real here—the holidays are a time for indulgence. With so many activities centralized around good food, and a plethora of sweet treats going around at the office, it’s hard not to taste them all—and why shouldn’t you? To keep healthy over the holidays, follow these simple steps to ensure the only thing stuffed on Christmas morning is your stocking!
1. Hydrate. Water helps cleanse the body of toxins and moves food through your system. It helps ease bloat and is great for your complexion, too. Plus, with holiday cocktail parties, water will help keep you hydrated if you’ve had a few cocktails. To jump start your water intake, drink two tall glasses first thing in the morning.
2. Keep moving. Suggest a morning or evening walk around the neighborhood with your family to help you digest and keep active while still spending quality time together.
3. Veggie swap. Make sure to serve veggies with every meal to cut empty calories and add filling fiber. Sub out chips or crackers for carrots with your famous dip, serve all meals with a big salad and switch that starchy potato side for some healthy steamed or sautéed veggies.
