Healthy Eating at the Holidays As we gather around the holiday table with family and friends, here are a few tips for making healthier holiday meal choices! Enjoy! Hints and Suggestions 1.

Don’t try to lose weight during the holidays.

2. Don’t starve yourself. 3. Eat slowly. 4. Eat before going to the mall and plan shopping so you don’t pass the Cinnabon store! 5. Eat regular meals the day of a party and have a healthy snack before you go. 6. Stand more than an arm’s length away from the munchies! 7. Survey the buffet and choose the foods you want to eat. 8. Use a dessert size plate at parties and pick the “special” foods you don’t get every day. 9. Avoid excess alcohol and snacks. 10. Enjoy small portions of the foods you really want. 11. If you over eat at one meal, go lighter at the next. 12. It is impossible to gain weight from one piece of pie! 13. Plan activities with family and friends that aren’t all about food. 14. Bring a healthy dish to the holiday gathering. 15. Use a teaspoon for serving to keep serving sizes smaller. 16. At a sit down dinner, be the last to start eating and sit next to a healthy eater. 17. Fill ½ your plate with fruits and vegetables. 18. Instead of making cookies, make non-edible projects such as a wreath or ornament. 19. Cut back on sugar hiding in foods, such as salad dressings, tomato sauce and bread. Then have cookies or candy a couple of times a 4

week. 20. Volunteer to serve a holiday meal in the community. 21. Allow yourself a cheat day! 22. Skip sugar-sweetened beverages. 23. Don’t rush to eat. Concentrate on socializing, meeting new people and having fun! 24. Think through the foods you definitely will eat, those you will sample and those you will skip.

Make Your Favorite Holiday Recipes a Little Healthier 1. Use roasted turkey breast without the skin and save 11 grams of saturated fat per 3 oz. serving. 2.

Refrigerate gravy to harden the fat, then skim off or use a gravy separator to skim fat.

3. Use less gravy. 4. In dressing, use less bread and add more celery, onion, vegetables, cranberries or apples. 5. Moisten dressing with low fat broth or applesauce instead of butter. 6. Cook fresh green beans with potatoes instead of using Crème of Mushroom Soup and top with almonds instead of fried onions. 7. Use skim milk, chick broth and parmesan cheese instead of whole milk and butter in mashed potatoes. 8. Make a crustless pumpkin pie. 9. Replace heavy creams with evaporated skim milk for cheesecakes and crème pies. 10. Top cakes with fresh fruit or sprinkle with powdered sugar instead of heavy frostings. 11. Using two egg whites in place of one egg can produce the same tasty results. 12. Substitute applesauce for oil, margarine or butter in muffins, cakes brownies or breads. 5

13. For dips, sauces and pie toppings use fat free yogurt, sour crème and whipped topping. 14. Choose reduced fat or low fat cheeses for salads and casseroles. Motivation The average Thanksgiving Dinner has 3,000 calories. It takes 2.8 hours running stairs to burn off these calories!
