3 Tips to Eating "mostly" Healthy over the Holidays
The holiday's are hard on the body and mind sometimes. Its usually a lot of pressure with gifts and pleasing everyone, going to all the things, eating all the goodies, and totally forgetting about taking care of yourself. This year may be a little different because of COVID but for some, that probably means feeling more alone and disappointed that you can't see loved ones or sad that you have had to postpone your favorite traditions with your family. So here are some things I am doing to stay sane, if ya know what I mean.
1. Don't stop your workout routine! I already workout 5 days a week and I will continue to make that a priority. At least move for 30 min. It helps with your mind and mood. Trust me! If haven't been regularly exercising, it's a great time to start.
2. When you aren't out or at a gathering, try to overload on the fruits and veggies. We can only control what we can control and if we cook at home or bring our lunch to work, we can give our bodies a chance to get some goodness in it. We sure will need it to fight off all the viruses that come out this time of year. When I am at a restaurant, I will sometimes order off the side menu because they usually have some kind of veggie medley or side salad.
3. Find a way to make treats a tad healthier. I am telling y'all, there are so many fun recipes on Pinterest. Check out, healthy no bake cookies, Paleo almond joy bites, or cut up a banana, dip the slices in melted chocolate and coat with crushed nuts or sprinkles. Make sure you stick them in the fridge or freezer for a bit before you eat them.
I hope you all have the most Merry Christmas! Remember, that you have so much to be thankful for. I am thankful for all of you who support me here in this space. Thanks for making all the fun recipes and giving me good feedback.
