Staying Healthy During The Holidays Tips #1 and #2


We are in the midst of the Holiday Season! Let's face it, if we only ate (even if we overate) Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas dinner, we would all survive. However, we know the reality is that the "Holiday Season" starts with the candy we buy in advance in September for Halloween. We break into the bag early (for one little piece), then eat so much that we need to buy more once Halloween rolls around! Then we're still eating it well after Halloween is over!

We are in the midst of the Holiday Season! Thanksgiving dinner means Thanksgiving dinner and days of leftovers. When my husband and I lived closer to our families we ate two Thanksgiving dinners on two different days so both of our families could have the joy of celebrating with us!

We are in the midst of the Holiday Season! December is a month of Holiday parties. They come in the form of dinners, cocktail parties, brunches and buffets. When I was an elementary teacher we celebrated with breakfast before school started for the day. The food stayed in the teacher's lounge and turned into lunch for some of us!
