Healthier Holidays - Days 5, 6, 7, 8

Monday, December 08, 2008

December 5th
Try healthier recipes. When treats are in the house, more of the dessert usually ends up in your belly than in your guests. So keep some low fat, low-calorie recipes and foods on hand.

I am trying to get rid of leftovers as quickly as possible and having snacks on hand to eat instead.

December 6th
Focus on people. Too often, food takes center stage of our holiday gatherings. Instead, focus on your loved ones, activities, and other traditions that make the holidays meaningful.

I'll definitely be focusing on the people this holiday season :-) :-) I can't wait to start having holiday parties at our house!!

December 7th
Budget wisely. Watch your food intake during the day if you're going to a party that night. Make healthy, filling choices beforehand, budgeting a few more calories to account for the party fare.

I am planning my meals ahead of time and really working hard on getting things situated so that I can indulge but still stay within my calorie range.

December 8th
Stay organized. Keep a running list of errands, groceries, and gifts, and make a plan to finish as
many things in as few trips as possible. You'll save time, gas and your own sanity!

I always stay organized so this one is easy for me. I do have a list together of what I will need for the holidays (cooking wise) so that will be easy once it comes to shop for those parties!

    Way to go! This list is great!
But as for leftovers... I love them and use them for lunches! I hate cooking more often then I have to!
