5 Healthy Holiday Eating Strategies

1. Eat your veggies first. When you sit down to a holiday meal, be sure to fill your stomach will all of the healthy options first. This way, you will have less room for goodies.


2. Don’t go hungry. Never go to a holiday party or shopping on an empty stomach. The last thing you want to do is binge. Remember to eat a small healthy meal before going out.

3. Talk more. Make it a point to visit more during mealtime. This allows food to settle in your stomach preventing you from overeating.

4. Drink a lot of water. The more water you drink, the less hungry you will be.

5. Snack Wisely. When you feel the munchies, choose snacks that are full of nutrients. Make it a point to try and avoid empty calorie snacks. Some of my new favorite smart snacks this Holiday season include ZonePerfect Perfectly Simple Limited Edition Bars.
