Holiday Party Tips – Happy Healthy Holidays in December

It’s prime time for holiday parties!  Parties may seem like a hurdle, blocking your healthy habits, but there are many ways you can enjoy the festivities AND stay true to your seasonal health goals.  Here are my top 3 tips for feeling great before, during and after a holiday shin dig:

  1. Don’t go to parties hungry! East a small meal 1-2 hours before your event.
  2. Stay hydrated. I have blogged about water consumption in the past, but this is one tip you should try:  if you choose to imbibe, make sure you drink 1 glass of water for each alcoholic beverage.
  3. Contribute a healthy dish (or two). That way you will know you have options.  And feel free to get creative – healthy doesn’t have to be boring!  There are some great ideas on Pinterest, such as this Celery Christmas Tree:
