Healthy Holiday Eating

  • Be careful what you drink. Alcoholic beverages and many fruit punches can be full of calories and short on nutrition. Look for hot cider, diet sodas and flavored waters instead.

  • Choose lean cuts of meat, like turkey or other white meats. Consider substituting meat with fish more often as well.

  • At holiday parties, make sure there are lots of vegetables, salad and fruits on the menu, and use low-calorie and fat-free salad dressings.

  • Allow yourself to splurge within moderation. Take small portions, and eat slowly to give yourself time to digest.
