5 Tips on How to Enjoy the Holidays Without the Guilt

01 copy 9

 

I know that the Holidays can be a stressful time, especially revolving around food. But I want you to know that you can definitely enjoy the holidays (including the traditional treats!) feeling much more relaxed and happier when you use these tips I share with you below:


Top 5 tips on how to enjoy the holidays without any guilt:

  1. Don't skip meals! By showing up hungry to the party you are setting yourself up to overeat and make poor food choices.

    The trick is to start the feast with a salad, baked veggies, or soup followed by a protein so that you begin filling your stomach up with dense nutrients, leaving little space for the breads and casseroles that tend to be the bloat culprits.

    I also recommend taking a high quality digestive enzyme with your meal to help with digestion so you can absorb the nutrients from your food better, ultimately reducing bloating and that sensation of food sitting in your stomach.

  2. Stay hydrated every day! H2O is the simplest way to naturally cleanse your body and help you differentiate whether you're truly hungry or just thirsty.

  3. Eating mindfully and be selective with your indulgences. Eat slowly and enjoy every bite! Be selective with what's on your plate so you're not loading up on empty calories. Wait about 20 minutes before going for seconds as this will allow some time for your brain to know that your stomach has had enough! Why not save that room for dessert anyway, right? Choose 1 dessert that you have been eyeing, and savour every delicious morsel.

  4. Contribute a healthy side dish or dessert for the dinner. This is a great strategy to ensure there will be at least something nutritious or made with better quality ingredients at the party for you to enjoy.

  5. Move your body! Try not to get into the mindset that you must workout so you can eat more or burn off all the calories from the night before. Instead, focus on how exercise helps to improve your mood and energy, also greatly reducing any heightened stress or anxiety you have during this season.

By making smarter choices and planning ahead you will be breezing through this winter season feeling and looking your best! :)


Mini Challenge of the Week
 
Practice eating mindfully. During the holidays with temptations all around us, it's easy to indulge impulsively without paying much attention to the price we will be paying the next few days (bloating, mood swings, lethargy, digestive upset, skin breakouts, etc).

Practice with taking your time to eat your meal (time yourself 20 minutes to finish it), chew until the food is a paste, and if you choose to indulge, make sure it's something you truly enjoy eating and savour every bite so you don't feel the need to go for seconds.
