Ahhhh, cookies, holiday parties and eggnog! What a joyous time of year!
Well, maybe not? It can be a really tough time of year if you’re trying to watch your weight. Enjoying the holidays doesn’t need to include gaining the average of 1-5 pounds. I may not lose weight, but I sure don’t want to gain it! Plus, too much sugar actually makes me more tired and less productive, just when my schedule is crazier than ever. I want to enjoy the holidays and be happy with how I stayed true to my healthy intentions.
I’m not suggesting you shouldn’t try Aunt Bettie’s cookies or savor a bit of eggnog. These are once a year special treats. However, you don’t have to overdo it and finish off the whole tin of cookies! (We’ve all been there!)
Use these tips any time of the year at whatever parties and celebrations you attend. Holidays are meant to be joyful and we, at DinnerTime, wish you a happy and healthy holiday season.
Here are some of our favorite healthy dishes to take to a party.
