Make the calories count! It is hard to eat "healthy" around the holidays... so eat smart!
First tip ***Don't eat it unless it is worth it.
Store bought (fill in blank)- Not worth it.
Grandma's oatmeal fudge- Worth it.
Don't deprive yourself of the special treats that you only get once a year. Those don't come around very often and is a real treat. I am not saying go all out and eat an entire cake, but indulge in a slice. If it makes you smile... go for it.
Store bought rolls, desserts and salads? Leave it on the table. Things that you can/do eat all year round aren't worth the extra calories for the day.
That is the first of many tips to get through the holidays w/o gaining! Stay tuned for the next one :)
