Here are 6 Healthy Habits to Avoid Holiday Hips this (and every) year! Bon Appetit!
3) Cut It In Half
This tip is all about portion control. There are several ways to watch your portions aside from the obvious (don’t put too much on your plate).
Ask for a smaller portion that is being offered. Especially at family gathers, pieces are cut on the generous side and can quickly cause you to over eat without thinking about it. If you cut a serving in half before it makes it to your plate, you’re controlling your portion size without wasting or stressing.
You can also double up on the healthy options available at the meal, like veggies without heavy sauces and breading and lettuce or spinach based salads. Vegetables will help to fill you up without adding the extra pounds that carbs and dessert do.
Being healthy this holiday season doesn’t have to stop the party. Being mindful of what you do and how you eat will help you keep your health and hips in check this winter. This is only Tip #3 – Check back soon for the rest of our Healthy Habits for Avoiding Holiday Hips!
