Eating Well During The Holidays Contributor

When we make changes to eat a more healthier life we tend to "take a break" during the Holidays.  This makes no sense to me, its like falling off the wagon and then your body feels horrible and you have to restart New Years Resolutions. 

During the Holidays we tend to make a lot of festive foods and celebration items.  It’s a wonderful time of year to celebrate one another and look forward to what 2013 has to offer.  While celebrating let me try to give you a few tips that will keep down the weight, keep kids healthy, and decrease your stress.

In my Monthly Contributor Post on Happy Mothering I talk about how to eat well during the holidays.
  • First step is to examine your food traditions.
  • What consequences can happen after one holiday party?
  • What are some ideas to be festive & avoid offending foods?
  • Recipe:  Cranberry Almond Upside Down Bars (Gluten Free)
The plans do not have to start out perfect. This is a journey for better health and we make mistakes along the way. The key is to continually move towards your ultimate goals, happiness and better health. 
Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas!

  1. I bring a dish to parties that I know I will eat; I may be the only one who eats it, but it guarantees I will have something.

  2. I just try not to overeat, that is the biggest thing!

  3. I am soooo trying to watch what I eat right now but some of my kids are now at the age where they want to bake all the time...ugh ;/

  4. I tend to try everything on the table and end up eating too much that I'd need to change pants because my tummy is bursting! Whenever we are having a family get-together, we eat and eat and eat! I only eat that much when we are all together. It's easy for me to shed excess weight anyway :D

  5. I'm trying to do the treadmill every day right now and drink water alot. This is a really hard thing for me to eat smart! Thanks for the reminders!

  6. I will eat smart after Christmas, I am going to Disney and well, do not plan to behave there at all, lol. I am working out now and will when I get home to make up for it though.

  7. I am bad for "taking a break" but I am also on a weight loss program now, due to my indiscretions. ;) I will try to do better this holiday season. :D


  8. Great tips! I REALLY need to remember these, the holidays are such a tempting time for me!

  9. I used to think that trying to be good over different holidays was pointless, but now I'm rethinking it!

  10. This is my goal for this year when the holidays come around. I always gain weight and I hate it!
