Healthy Holiday Survival Guide from The Picky Eater Story

The holidays are right around the corner! So begins the world of warm and cozy parties with family and friends, delicious baked goodies and home cooked meals. Here is my holiday survival guide to take with you this season.

Tip : Don’t Skip Meals! Before leaving for a party, eat a light snack like raw veggies or nuts to curb your appetite. You will be less tempted to overeat.


Bundle up and walk outside after meals whenever you can, moving after eating helps with digestion and gives you a little workout too. Plan a 30 minute workout that will get your heart rate up: run up and down stairs, jump rope, run outside or on the treadmill, or try a winter sport.

If you are faced with family style dining or a holiday buffet, get the smallest plate and scout all the offerings before starting to pile things on your plate. Choose fruits and veggies first, and save 1/3 of the plate for grains and proteins.

Tip: Choose a small plate

Instead of some of the super rich, calorie-laden holiday desserts, try some of these healthified versions:-  -Healthy Cheesecake Bites -Lightened-Up Carrot Cake

Tip: Remix Dessert

Chocolate Macadamia Nut Truffles are Healthy Holiday Dessert

Other Healthy Holiday Survival Tips Drink water! Adding in water in between cocktails or food plates can help reduce overall caloric intake. For every alcoholic beverage or treat you consume, drink 1 glass of water.
