The holiday season is a time to celebrate with family & friends, but for many it also becomes atime for over-eating & weight gain. By implementing a few simple tips you can stay healthythrough the holiday season.Ten Tips for Healthy Holiday Eating1. Be realistic. Don’t try to lose pounds during the holidays, instead try to maintain your current weight.2. Plan time for exercise. Exercise helps relieve holiday stress & prevent weight gain. Try a brisk walk twice a day.3. Before leaving for a party, eat a light snack like raw vegetables or a piece of fruit to curb your appetite.4. Survey party buffets before filling your plate. Choose your favorite foods & skip your least favorite. Include vegetables & fruits to keep your plate balanced.5. Eat until you are satisfied, not stuffed. Savor your favorite holiday treats while eating small portions.6. Be careful with beverages. Alcohol can lessen inhibitions & induce overeating; non-alcoholic beverages can be full of calories & sugar.7. If you overeat at one meal, go light on the next.8. Take the focus off food. Turn candy & cookie making time into non-edible projects like making wreaths, dough art decorations or a gingerbread house. Plan group activities with family & friends that are not about food. Try serving a holiday meal to the community, playing games or going on a walking tour of decorated homes.9. Bring your own healthy dish to a holiday gathering.10. Practice Healthy Holiday Cooking. Preparing favorite dishes lower in fat & calories will help promote healthy eating.• Gravy — Refrigerate the gravy to harden fat. Skim the fat off.• Dressing — Use a little less bread & add more onions, garlic, celery & vegetables. Add fruits such as cranberries or apples. Moisten or flavor with low fat low sodium chicken or vegetable broth & applesauce.• Turkey – Enjoy delicious, roasted turkey breast without the skin.• Green Bean Casserole-- Cook fresh green beans with chunks of potatoes instead of cream soup. Top with almonds.• Mashed Potato — Use skim milk, broth, garlic & Parmesan cheese instead of whole milk & butter.• Quick Holiday Nog — Four bananas, 1-1/2 cups skim milk or soymilk, 1-1/2 cups plain nonfat yogurt, 1/4 teaspoon rum extract, and ground nutmeg. Blend all ingredients except nutmeg. Puree until smooth. Top with nutmeg.• Desserts — Make a crustless pumpkin pie. Substitute two egg whites for each whole egg in baked recipes. Replace heavy cream with evaporated skim milk in cheesecakes & cream pies. Top cakes with fresh fruit, fruit sauce, or a sprinkle of powdered sugar instead of fattening frosting. Enjoy the Holidays. Plan time for activities & incorporate healthy recipes into your holiday meals. Your mind and body will thank you.

Happy, happy Christmas, that can win us back to the delusions of our childish days; that can recall to the old man the pleasures of his youth; that can transport the sailor and the traveller, thousands of miles away, back to his own fire-side and his quiet home! ~Charles Dickens, The Pickwick Papers , 1836Questions about the WIB Newsletter?Please contact Teri Guy – 435-797-3215 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
