Holidays bring the joy of family, friends, parties, and great food. While many may stress over the dreaded seasonal weight gain, it is easy to maintain a healthy diet by following some simple guidelines. Make this holiday season your happiest and healthiest one yet, and don’t fall into the mindset that you will start your healthy diet in the New Year.
There is no better time to start than now. Make sure to stock your refrigerator with healthy meals so you are less likely to pick at unhealthy leftovers. And don’t let your unhealthy holiday leftovers replace all your meals for the week. There are so many healthy recipes that can still feel festive without you overindulging and that taste great the day after. Some of our favorites include Rosemary Orange Roast Turkey, Roasted Chicken with Lemon and Thyme, Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes, Baked Parmesan Tomatoes, Ginger Crinkle Cookies.
