Healthy habits during the holidays

Healthy habits during the holidays

The days are getting shorter, the nights colder, and the beverages warmer. The season to be jolly is finally here! The grocery stores are displaying irresistible goodies. (Chocolate, yay!) All these sweets can put you in a real pickle when you are trying to live a healthy lifestyle. These tips are for you if you want to keep up the healthy habits during the holidays!

Prepare, prepare, prepare!
Eating healthy when the sugary and fatty goodies are shoved under your nose is no easy task. Choosing the healthy options will be a lot easier with the right preparation. Write a grocery list, prepare your meals in advance, and go for the fruit and veggies you like. Sticking to your healthy habits will be a no-brainer!

Fruit and veggies first!
The best way to get all the healthy nutrients in your body is to start your day off with (can you guess it?) fruit and veggies! Begin with a homemade smoothie. Or try a healthy breakfast recipe and enjoy it with your family. By the time breakfast is over, you’ve kickstarted your day the best way possible. For the rest of the day, you don’t need to feel guilty when you munch on your favorite, not-so-healthy snack.

Enjoy the holiday season
This one should be easy! Be jolly this season. Yes, that includes eating your favorite, less-than-healthy meals. Who knows, maybe you’ll feel inspired to turn that dish into something healthy. Replace for example your holiday steak with a healthy black bean burger. Even if you eat something that doesn’t deserve the label ‘health food,’ don’t panic! Your healthy habits won’t be ruined by one bad meal.
