How to keep lifestyle goals throughout this holiday season

Everywhere you look there are signs of holidays; snow, lights, decorations, Christmas trees all in preparation for the season.  Unfortunately holidays do pose challenges when it comes to watching our portions and choosing healthy options, given all the extra temptations and yummy goodies everywhere you turn. Just because it’s the holidays does not mean we can’t try to incorporate some healthy habits to keep us on track with our lifestyle and health goals.

Check out these two handouts called Healthy Holiday Eating and Eating Out the Healthy Way for some great tips!

These tips don’t just refer to the holiday season, any special occasion or time we are eating away from home still pose challenges to lifestyle goals and that these tips can also be used in those situations.
