Holiday Food Swap
- Choosing Cauliflower Mash instead of Mashed Potatoes
- Choosing Apple Parfait made with Protein Clusters, Greek Yogurt/Low-Fat Pudding and Cinnamon instead of Apple Pie
- Choosing Air-Fried Cornish Hens instead of Deep Fried Turkey
TIP: Don’t “BANK” Calories
Whether it is Holiday Parties or Holiday Meals, “saving/banking” your calories, protein, carbs, fats and fiber will end up with some negative consequences. For one, it can cause dips and peaks in your blood sugar levels. This makes us irritable, our bodies recognize this as a fasting state and even get our bodies all cranked up to feel the need to overindulge at meal/snack time and ultimately stores this energy as fat. To avoid this, plan to eat as you normally would: small, nutritionally adequate and on time.
