Healthy on Holidays
Holidays are such joyous occasions spent with family and friends, recreating memories and enjoying what means the most to us. Of course, we are grateful to be surrounded by food all the time, but it can be hard for many people to have control and still remain healthy.
A tip from nutritionstripped.com says, to plan ahead. You may be able to plan a breakfast the night before, and know what to eat whether it’s sticking to protein, and fiber, and saving a carb for a small sweet dessert. Another tip is to count in veggies when you’re eating more dense foods during holiday season. Vegetables create a thicker base in dishes, which also adds more nutrients, fiber and taste! If you’re able to snack on sliced veggies before a meal, you're satisfying your hunger with vegetables, rather than the possibility of going for the carb-filled appetizer.
One more tip is to try taking a pause in between bites. By putting down your utensil after each bite, you will pace yourself. This will eventually build a bigger mind-body awareness.
There are also a ton of healthy substitutes to all desserts that you can try, simply by substituting flour for spelt flour, and coconut sugar! Take a look below for a delicious apple cake recipe. Have a happy, healthy, and sweet new year!
