Healthy Eating During Holidays




  • Eat a low fat snack before a holiday meal so you won’t be tempted to overeat.
  • Chew slowly and savor each bite of food, and you’ll be less likely to go for seconds.
  • Extend the duration and frequency of your exercise routine to burn off the extra calories.
  • Center your holiday get-togethers on communicating and sharing with friends and family rather than on eating and drinking.
  • Avoid crowded places to limit your exposure to second-hand smoke and germs.
  • Don’t mix alcohol with medication.
  • Remember to bring enough medications and keep them in your carry-on luggage when you travel.
  • Reduce last minute anxiety and stress by shopping early and making a list ahead of time.
  • Gift ideas: tea, dried mushrooms, dried fungus, chestnuts, dried or fresh fruits, plants, household items, and books.
